Can move window, but can't resize it

I have a program called SmartPSS. It runs with elevated privilege.

DisplayFusion can move the window, but don't seems capable of resizing it.

DisplayFusion can resize and move all my other windows just fine.

What should I do?

Is there any information about this behavior that I should know?

Hello,

If you run Display Fusion as administrator, is it able to resize that window?

Thanks!

No. Not even running DF as Administrator makes it resize the window. The only way is to position the mouse cursor over the edge and then click and drag the border to resize it.

I just made a video demonstrating the problem.

Hello,

Thanks for sending over that video! Unfortunately, it looks like that program isn't accepting the resize value we send it. We send a standard call to resize windows, and if the program ignores it, then there's not much we can do on our end to fix it.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

It is strange, because if I use WinLayoutManager, I can get the window in question to resize.

I'd rather not use another software since I already own DisplayFusion which has much more capabilities.

I just created another video demonstrating Windows Layout Manager (version 1.1.0.0) resizing it.

1024x736 is the min size on mine. It resized larger just fine.

The titlebar is odd, no right click.

Next monitor went from center monitor 1 to 3/4 across monitor 1 and back again. I have 3 splits on monitor 1, none on 2... it ignored these.

There is an option for full screen instead of maximize... I think it was full screen when I did the next-monitor but after that I closed it, and it would not open again. On launch it has no window. Requires end-task to close the hidden.

I installed it today just to look at it's features and see if it would resize for me. Time to get some work done here. Someday I'll do something fancy with cams

Hello,

Unfortunately, there's not much we can do here. I downloaded the program on my system just to double check, and I can confirm it's rejecting our calls to resize the window. If something changes in the way we send our calls to get windows to resize, we'll be sure to let you know.

Thanks!
