Change size of open file dialog box/screen?

At some point I accidentally maximized my open file dialog box, and now I'm unable to make is smaller.  Mouse changes to arrows on the edges, but I cannot make the window smaller.

 

Just annoying, but not a bug. Or is this a windows issue?

I managed to solve it.

From another post, I renamed this UXP folder - https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-discussions/no-welcome-screen-new-file-screen/td-p/9854370

 

Then when I selected Open File, I selected Hide Folders at bottom left, then Show Folders. My windows was back to a resizable window.

I have this same problem with the window (process multiple files) being bigger than the screen. My Mac Mini thinks. Poorly. Anyway I followed this obscure rabbit hole down to a black home screen issue and didn't see an answer. You changed the name of UXP to ~UXP (mine was empty but whatever I renamed it) then clicked out of that screen. Then in PS selected File? then Open? and in that dialog box clicked Hide Options (mine doesn't say folders) then Show...THEN WHAT?

I'm running Ventura 13.5.2 on M1 Mac Mini, the display is Samsung 42" 1280x720 (but the Mac sees as 20" but correct resolution) and the dock is hidden on the left. I've tried all the variations of the dock. Mac OS has a Windows Manager?

Your screenshot shows that you're using Photoshop Elements, not Photoshop.

Try posting in the Elements forum.

Your screen resolution of 1280 x 720 is simply too small on the height side.

Photoshop elements needs a minimum screen resolution of 1280 x 800 in order not to cut

off many dialogs like the Process Multiple Files dialog.

That seems to be working with the escape and enter keys. Thanks for that. Also my dock is hidden. Is that a clue?

Hiding the dock gives you more screen real estate.

 

Is your display a TV screen?

 

On your Mac under Apple>System Settings>Displays have you tried the different Resolution settings?

Yes to everything. I used underscan (overscan?) in the resolutions box so I could see the edges of the displayed image (the whole screen) and it was all there for every site, every app, everything. Nothing was missing until I tried doing a batch process. I have to switch to a square to see the bottom of it. But using escape and enter works like a charm. I just wonder why PS Elements has to shove the box all the way out to the edges, bigger than the PS area and make it non-sizable. Now I have to learn CSS just to fix it. Also with the TV remote, I changed the native resolution to "just scan" from all the options and that avoids any clipping. Samsung and Apple apparently don't play nice.
