It's something that has been around for years, has annoyed me for years, and today has annoyed me sufficiently to vent.

Why do some windows (specifically in Microsoft applications, but I am sure in others too) have a fixed size?

I'm looking at you, VS2010 Configuration Manager!

Here;s a perfectly good grid, that I want to be able to expand the columns sufficiently to read, and to see as many items as possible - and I can't becuase someone at MS decided I wouldn't be allowed to resize the window!

Why not?
