editing window size

i am a technical analyst for a software development company and our systems are using linux. i have roughly 25 sites that i am supposed to monitor and check on daily. my question is how i re-size the window so that i can fit up to four screens at once to make the process a little easier for myself. any help would be greatly appreciated.

are you using firefox? there is foXpose, it is a icon in the bottom left hand corner of the window to view all open tabs in one window. Otherwise, click and drag the window to resize it.

Need some more details here...are you using a GUI? What window manager? If you are on the console, check out a program called "screen" which allows you to split the console into multiple frames.

I just googled "zoc" and came up with a telnet client. OK, now I'm trying to figure out how you got a "window" without a GUI...

In most window-managers that I know of, you either have handle-grips on the side or bottom of the window to click on and you drag to a new size, or you press "alt" while right-clicking anywhere on the window and drag it to resize, or "alt" + left-click anywhere on the window to move it. But I'm increasingly getting the suspicion that this isn't what we're talking about...

zoc brings up the command line in it's own window. i can click on the outside of the window and resize it to an extent. but that isn't even half of the screen i am not able to have full view of more than one window.
