I accidentally maximized the Force Quit dialoge on my Mac and I am looking for a way to restore it to its original size other than manually resizing it. I would like it to be have exact dimensions as before.

Is there such a way to do that, for example, with preference files or defaults?

  • If you tell us how did you minimze it in first place ?

You can delete a key in ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist:

defaults delete com.apple.loginwindow 'NSWindow Frame ProcessPanel'

The changes seem to be applied immediately.


simply double click on the taskbar. that will do the trick :)
