Don't know how or why but screen went to partial with dead space above which had a smaller version of the page in it. Maximizing did nothing. I could grab and drag and expand the main page sideways but not up.
Closing the little one closes both.
Shut the thing off hoping it would correct itself but that didn't work.
Google didn't turn up any help either.
Any ideas ?

Perhaps to keep the screen on while you are doing something else on another tab. Like watching youtube or following up the news while you read emails? I don't use it, so just guessing...

Hitting a key combination w/o realizing it has driven many a computer user to lose it.
