Download dialog window is going off screen

  • I recently updated to Mac OSX Yosemite and notice when I download something the window that asks me to save the file goes off screen. The save button is not visible and I cannot scroll down to click on it. I can still save by hitting the enter button.

    Is this a bug resulting from Yosemite? Can it be fixed?

  • This is generally a problem after having manually resized the window out of view.

    You can reset the save/download panel by running the following command in Terminal:

    defaults delete com.operasoftware.Opera NSNavPanelExpandedSizeForSaveMode

    You can reset the open panel by running the following command in Terminal:

    defaults delete com.operasoftware.Opera NSNavPanelExpandedSizeForOpenMode

    You must quit Opera before running the commands. You can find the Terminal by searching for it using Spotlight. See this post for details.

    If this does not solve your problem, please post a screenshot of your screen so we can see what is going on.

  • Thanks that seemed to work

  • Another solution is if you hold down the shift key and drag the right or left edge of the window, it will maintain its original aspect ratio and the window will grow smaller so that you can properly resize it from the bottom.

    Thought I would mention that here for people who might not be familiar with the terminal. 🙂
