    Unable to restore or resize windows now


    I realize that you are unable to restore or resize windows. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:

    • Did you make any changes to the PC prior to this issue?

    • Does this issue occur on a different user account?

    Suggest you to boot the PC in a clean boot state to check if that helps. A clean boot step will help us determine if any 3rd party service or application is causing this issue.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows:

    Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow the steps under “How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot” in the article to boot to normal startup.

    Keep us informed to help you further.
