Free Pascal - Window Resize

I just downloaded Free Pascal (2.4.2) and am eager to use it after many years with an older version. In the early exploring stage I have found that I cannot expand the 4 x 7.5

    When I resized my window from 800x600 to 1024x768 things got smaller but easier for some websites to see everything. I suggest that you do a right mouse click on the Free Pascal IDE icon then do a click on the Properties and from there, change the various settings to get what you want. I didn't like the window size so I altered mine to be taller by going to the Layout tab and the Window Position and adjusting it.

    Yes, your advice worked nicely. Thanks. However, when I make this adjustment it is not permanent (repeating each time app is opened). Do you need to adjust size each time you access the program?

    Ok, right before you close out the [b]Properties[/b], you want to [color=Purple]click[/color] on the [b][color=Green]Apply[/color][/b] button in the lower right-hand corner, then [color=Purple]click[/color] the OK button. That's suppose to save the settings so that when you use the icon again, it uses the saved settings.

    Until your note I was using the Properties associated with the running app window (summoned by a right-click on the tool bar). Following your note, I accessed the full Properties section (a right-click on the desktop icon). I exactly followed your direction (Apply >>> OK, which seems appropriate), to no avail; the app constantly opens up the small window.

    Unfortunately, I think I am cursed to forever manually re-size the 4x7" screen when using Free Pascal. Very strange/frustrating. Maybe I have some kind of maverick version. Thanks for all your help.

    Did you ever get a solution Kingfish? No matter what I do I can't get any bigger than that original tiny window. I just want to use a bit more of my screen real estate!
