Just found this out...

We all know that double-clicking on a window's title bar normally opens that window full screen but I just found out, by accident, that if you move the pointer to the top edge of the title bar where the pointer turns into a double-arrow then double-click the window is stretched to fill from the top to the bottom of the screen but it's width remain the same. I find this very useful.

And now I know why - there's a setting in the Ease of Access Centre that controls this and related behaviour that I had changed.

1. It wasn't a full quote - I left the smiley out.  Wink (and if I didn't I intended to)
2. It was just 2 words! and much clearer as a result of inclusion.
3. Surely you have better things to do.  Grin Grin Grin

And if you drag the window to the side of the monitor (by that I mean the mouse pointer hits the side of the monitor) it'll fit the window to that HALF of the monitor.
