I just installed the new version of Lightroom Classic on my iMac, running OS 10.13.1

Suddenly the LR window is huge and unwieldy. Is there any way to resize it to make it smaller?

Thank you.

Sure the same way you would resize any window on a Mac, or even on a Windows computer.

First make sure it is not Full Screen (Not sure on a Mac) then once it is a window place the mouse pointer, cursor, over an edge or corner then Click/Hold and Drag to a smaller size.

You may have to press F or Shift-F once or twice first before you can drag a corner of the window.

I really hope you’ve worked this out by now, but for the benefit of anyone that has found this thread, searching for an answer, here’s what worked for me.

I’ll assume that you know how to grab and drag the edge of your window to reduce the size of it, but you’ve accidentally got yourself into a screen mode that won’t let you do that…

Keyboard Shortcut:

⌥⌘F (Which translates to Option+Command+F on a Mac, or Alt+Control+F on a PC)

Or from the Lightroom menu at the top of the screen:

Window>Screen Mode>Normal

Hope that helps – Trevor.

lovecross, is this thread fo real? Cracking up here. I have been stuck for a few days trying to live with my fumble. Then I googled how to solve this issue only finding old material and then the ridiculous suggestions to drag and size your screen, only to see this post from you an hour old. This works perfectly now! Thank you for letting me know!

Thanks so much for this.  It's been a real problem since installing the new version.
