Sizer provides several options to resize window. Lets see how we can use these options to resize window in a much simpler way.
- Resizing Cursor Option: This option lets you resize any window through resizing cursors. Sizer consists of a configuration dialog box which consists of three window sizes by default. You can add more sizes here if you want to resize window in a particular size. To resize window using resizing cursor option, you need to move the cursor to the edges of the window to get a resizing cursor like double headed arrow. You will notice that all the sizes that you have added to the configuration dialogue box (including the default ones) are shown in the pop up menu when you right click the mouse cursor. From here, you can click on any list item you want to set as the window’s new size.
- Restore Button Option: The right click pop menu option which we have covered just now is also available for the restore button. You can right click on the restore button and select the desired resize option from the pop up menu to resize window to a particular fixed size.
- System Menu option: You can configure Sizer to show Sizer Items in system menu. This will add a “Resize/reposition” option to the standard system menu. You can access it by right clicking anywhere on the title bar of the window. Alternatively you can make a left click on the programs icon at the top left corner of the window to access this resizing option.
- System Tray Option: If you configure Sizer to show the system tray icon, you will get a list of sizes in the pop up menu of the system tray icon. You can select the desired size from here also.
