Two Very Nifty Utilities

Resizing Dialog Boxes That Otherwise Cannot Be Resized

Some dialog boxes and other system windows have fixed dimensions and normally can’t be resized. However, a little portable program called “ResizeEnabler” can change that for most cases. The program is 10 years old but it worked for me in Windows 7, 64-bit. There is a review that says it works in Windows 8 but I could not get it to function in Windows 8.1, 64-bit. The download is a 42 KB ZIP file containing the executable EXE file, a DLL, and a text file with information. These files should be unzipped to their own folder. Clicking the executable puts an entry in the tray notification area, where you can disable it if desired.

Removing Those Pesky Shortcut Arrows

Many people have no problem with the little arrows on short-cut icons, and actually like the arrows so there is no confusion that the icon is a short-cut and not a program. Others, however, find those little arrows to be quite annoying. If you are one of those people, a small program from Winaero will remove them for you.
