Slack, you may know. It rocks, and I’m also involved in several teams. Their site is great, but more teams, more tabs in my browser. I decided to use their Windows app which provides handy shortcuts for switching between teams.
Today I just remotely connected to my Windows desktop from my notebook. But then, I realized the Slack window is shrinked. Maybe the reason is my notebook’s screen size, but I don’t know. Its content area became too small to read, so I wanted its window size back.
Actually the default window size was my taste, so I wanted to just reset its customized window size. And I found it, so here I am to share with you.
Resetting Slack’s window size
First of all, note that this is not the permanent solution since it’s not a part of Slack API or something that is guaranteed by them. My Windows machine is 64-bit and the version of Slack is 2.2.1.
So here is a way to resetting the window size of Slack.
- Quit your Slack application.
- Navigate to
%APPDATA%\Slack. The value of
%APPDATA%is something like
app. Its value would be like:
- Delete the whole
windowSettingsentry above. If you delete only a part of value of
windowSettings, application may crash.
- Open Slack again. It will set the default window size automatically.
Keep calm and use Slack!
