Open/Save file window too big for screen

When trying to open or save a file in an app, like Visual Studio Code, a file-explorer window pops up. Great, other then the fact that the top of that window is cut off like this:

I can't resize or move that window, because you can't grab the top of it, and using "Super + [arrows]" doesn't move it, like it would do with normal apps.

Is there a solution to this? It is so far my only annoyment with Zorin OS, for the rest I'm loving it.

Try press F11.

That does not do anything.

ok. Try alt+f8

Solved it temporarily by unplugging and replugging in the external monitor, next time I encounter the issue, I'll try alt+f8

The only workaround I know is resize the window... sometimes it does remember for future instances, but I'm not sure what setting is supposed to control that. Anyway, try holding down the Super key and use your mouse's right button to resize windows. Doing it this way you can resize it from anywhere within the window, not just the edges.

Super useful stuff, I learned about it a few months ago and I use it all the time :slight_smile:

Super + left click -> drag the window.
Super + right click -> resize the window.
