On my netbook with a resolution of 1024x768, dialogues, like "file open" dialogue or "windows", like the file manager window are opened so that the height of the dialogue/window is too huge.
Every time, I have to press the alt button, move the dialogue/window and resize it, to use it normally. Something that is really anoying, especially, because Ubuntu already knows (like I can see in the dash - that is set to netbook) about the monitor form factor. All the netbooks have a display 1024x576 or 1024x600 - so it would be nice, if the dialogues would be resized to not extent over the borders.
Another option would be, if I could resize dialogues/windows - and "save" the form after it, so next time, it would open with exactly the new size. I tried the F5 button - but that is not a solution. So I'd ask, if anyone knows a solution to solve this unlucky behaviour.
