When DOPUS is opened the main window is 'locked' to the right hand side of my screen. The minimise, resize and close buttons on the top right of the menu bar are not showing and I am unable to drag the DOPUS window. It will let me extend the window to the left but cannot make any vertical adjustments.
I wondered if anyone else had experienced such a problem and if so how they resolved it. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but that does not seem to make any difference. I have been using DOPUS for a couple of years now and have never had any previous issues. Weird!
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Are you able to reposition the Opus window using a Windows shortcut? Press Alt-Space then M (for move) then use the arrow keys to move up/down/left/right. See support.microsoft.com/en-au/kb/126449
The thread title says "not responding" but it sounds like the right hand edge of the window is just off-screen?
If the window is partially off-screen, try clicking on it and then pushing Win + Left Cursor a few times to reposition it.
If it still opens off-screen after closing & re-opening it, reposition it and then use Settings > Set as Default Lister when it's where you want it.

Thanks. I have now been able to move the Dopus window away from the edge of the screen but still cannot resize it vertically.nor can I click and drag it! However it is usable so I guess I will just live with it 'as is'.
Many thanks to you and 'aussieboykie' for your help.
If you use Alt-Space and then 'S', you can use the arrow keys to make the Window smaller (or larger). The first arrow key you press after hitting 'S' will decide which border you are moving.
[ul][li]Up will move the top border[/li]
[li]Down move the bottom border[/li]
[li]Left will move the left border[/li]
[li]Right will move the right border[/li][/ul]
Note that if you hit two of them (like down and left), you'll be moving the bottom and left borders.
Once you've indicated which border you want to move, continue using arrow keys to move that border. Press ENTER when done moving that border.

What Ric suggests should work, although the method of resizing via the keyboard in Windows is a little fiddly.
A potentially easier way to quickly resize an Opus lister:
Type a > character into the file display. A command field should appear at the bottom. (If it's off-screen, just assume it has appeared and continue!)
Paste Set LISTERPOS=0,0 LISTERSIZE=500,500 as the command and hit return. The lister will then jump to the top-left of the primary monitor, and be a fairly small size.
Alternatively, download this .dcf file and double-click it in the window you want to resize. It runs the same command, and you don't have to type or paste anything:
