Ok, so the trend in Windows / WinForms design has been toward minimalism, right?
They've flattened out the colors and made icons two-dimensional, removed borders from windows and all the rest, right.

But why, why, why? Do they use these gigantic windows to display one line of text? Laugh | :laugh:
Visual Studio 2017 Example
Example dialog from Visual Studio 2017[^]

Android Studio is guilty too...
Android studio window from one of my articles here at CP[^]

Neither of those windows can be resized either.

I believe the designers are thinking, "well, one day I may decide to put more text and stuff on that window..." They are subscribing to the Indecisive Design Theory Big Grin | :-D

Indecision is the key to flexibility.
