    Hi, I seem to resizing my windows explorer search bar every other week. And then suddenly without being asked it has grown to fill almost all available space.


    Anybody else having this issue? Solutions?

    insert file dialog search bar shrinks

    Where is the setting that makes the search bar in the insert file dialog box shrink when you click on it?

    To produce the problem, open Outlook [2016 on Win 10 1909] and create a new email. Now Attach File -> Browse this PC. The insert file dialog box opens. Everything looks normal, but if you click in the search area, the search area (and history) only shrinks.
    It's not just the text, but the bar itself. See screenshot below. Notice how the search is smaller than the rest of the text?

    I've checked Explorer and the search bar there doesn't shrink. I then tried insert picture in both Excel and Word and got the same shrinking. I tried the open dialog in Acrobat and that didn't shrink, so as far as I can tell, it seems limited to either Office
    or the insert file dialog, or both.

    A search turned up the compact layout in Outlook (View -> View Settings -> Other Settings), but turning that on and off didn't change the problem. Hoping someone here has seen this before.

  3. Windows 10 Defender - How to make it default to task bar?

    Using Windows 10 and currently I am using Defender for anti virus. For whatever reason Windows Defender does not show up in the task bar unless I search for the program or right click and scan a file/folder. Is there a way to force Defender to show up in the task bar at start up?
