It's so frustrating! Every time I open Windows Live Mail (version 2009), its window fills the screen from side to side, but only goes from the top of the screen to about half-way down. I have to maximize the window every time I run it! I've tried setting the 'Run' property to Maximize, tried resizing it by stretching the bottom border with the mouse, but every time it opens, it still opens the same way: covering the top half of the screen. This happens even if I've strretched it to cover the whole screen, and hold down the Control key while closing the program. I've noticed that when I stretch the program to fill the screen, there's a little effect (it's hard to describe; it's sort of a ripple effect) around the mouse cursor when I get to the bottom of the screen. I always took this to mean that something had happened. But when I release the mouse button, the bottom edge of the Windows Live window pops up a few pixels--like it's snapping to a grid--and I can't find any way to stop it from doing this. I've tried stretching it to almost full screen, so I don't get the ripple effect, but that doesn't help. This is very annoying. It never happened with Outlook Express! Does anybody have an answer?
