Window Size beyond screen resolution


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

is it possible to resize a Window in Win7 and/or Win10 beyond the screen resolution?

i.e. if I use the "Window Resize" function to resize a Window to 2000px height, it won't resize to more than my screen resolution height of 1080px. Is there any way to get around this limitation?

Windows 7, Macro Express 3:
This code resizes to the smaller size and centers.  
Then when I press ENTER to get rid of the text box, it expands the width to only slightly more than my actual resolution.  When I grab the top margin and try to move the window, Windows immediately snaps it back to a "reasonable" size that fits my screen.  

So to answer your question, no, I can't get it to resize the way you suggest.  When I tried an excessive height rather than excessive width, again its height was slightly more than my actual resolution.  However, in that case I couldn't access the top margin of the window at all, and had trouble getting rid of the window.    

 

Window Resize: Current Win - (Width: 600, Height: 500)
Window Reposition: Center - Current Win
Text Box Display: xxxxxxxxxxxx
Window Resize: Current Win - (Width: 4400, Height: 500)
Window Reposition: Center - Current Win

I tried. When I set the size to values larger than a maximized window, the application's menubar disappeared under the top of the screen, but there were no changes to the left, right or bottom of the window.

Press Alt + spacebar (to access the System menu, and then you can easily resize, minimize, or close the oversized window)
