Question

How do I resize the save box in Microsoft Word?


Answer

OS X Yosemite has a small bug with Open and Save dialog windows, where the file selector or saver dialog window shows up as inappropriately large. Sometimes the Open/Save window gets so big that it goes underneath the users Dock or even off screen, effectively preventing the dialog window from being resized (shown below). 


 

There are two possible solutions to this issue:
 

  1. Hold Shift and Drag the right-hand side of the dialog box inward; this will resize it the entire box diagonally. The size will be remembered the next time you attempt to Open/Save a file.

     
  2. You can also Minimize the window by clicking the Arrow Button next to the file name.
