Reset window size

I'm using a plugin that syncs my PHPStorm settings between computers. At work, I have 30-inch monitors, at ridiculously high resolution. At home, I have 26-inch monitors, at lower resolution. The problem is, when I position the Project window near the top of the screen at work, those settings sync to my home computer, and the top of the window is inaccessible off the top of the screen. The Resize options are grayed out, and I have no way to access the top of the window to drag it into position. Any suggestions?


Hi Warren,

Which OS do you have?

1) Go to .WebIde10\config\options\ folder (on Windows 7 it will be C:\Users\USERNAME\.WebIde10\config\options\)
2) Open window.manager.xml in any text editor
3) Edit attribute values for <frame tag
This is what I have for that tag on my 1680x1050, maximized window

<frame x="-8" y="-8" width="1696" height="1026" extended-state="6" />

I'm on Windows 7, so that should work. I'll give it a try. Thanks!


Hello Warren,

Also you can exclude this file(window.manager.xml) from sycnhroninization and you will have different versions of this file for every computer.


if not being able to click on the top bar to drag the window is the issue, you can hold down the ALT key and left click anywhere on the window to move it.  This way you could move the window down enough to see the top bar and do what you need to do.

alt+leftClick  = move the window.
