Resizing Windows

Windows may be resized within the Virtual Desktop. This may be the main AccountEdge screen or the overall application.

1. If the application opens in full screen, the screen may be reduced by clicking the Restore Down icon in the upper right corner. This icon may also be used to toggle between reduced size and full screen size.

5. The application window may be moved by click in the blue banner at the top of the window and repositioning within the background window as desired.

6. The Window link on the top toolbar may be used to tile, cascade, or close the application window within the background window.
