Windows 10 script editor problem

I have had this once before, drove me nuts for a while! 

Load stack normally and trigger code editor, If you then hover your mouse over the Livecode icon on the taskbar, a few smaller windows will appear, one of which will be the code editor.  Right mouse click on that window and select maximize - This should then display code editor full screen, allowing you to resize accordingly.  Since performing that trick, I haven't had the issue again.

Thanks, Dar, Scott, and Jerry, for the suggestions. I’ll pass those along to my student. (Assuming she wants to get to the bottom of the problem, instead of being satisfied with the workaround.)
