can't resize vertical dimension of gimp

When I start gimp the window gimp is in is too large in the vertical and I cannot resize it. The lowest part of that window is buried behind my panel (even if I hide the panel). Shrinking the horizontal dimension works fine but all attempts to diminish the vertical dimension fail. See attached screenshot.

You do not give your OS, in this case does not make much difference but this demo on setting Gimp up after installation.

Then it depends on display, Gimp 2.8.x does really need XGA (width x 768pix) as a minimum, not usually a problem these days.

My guess, If you are in single window mode, increase the width of the docks and dialogues, as attached screenshot. There are hotspots when you hover the mouse pointer over the edges. Not too easy to see initially. Increase the width(s) and the overall window can be resized.

If short on screen area, you can take little used tool icons out of the tool box, helps reduce the overall height. - look in Edit -> Preferences -> Toolbox. They are all still accessible via menus.

That is correct. I erred in clicking "Add attachment" thinking I had to do that to attach the screenshot I had already uploaded. Little did I know that the mail user program would then insist on another attachment and not give me the opportunity to re-attach my screenshot.

That worked well! I just needed to Edit>Preferences>Window Mgmt>Reset to Defaults then restart gimp. Thanks very much!

I invite you to look at http://betweentheleaves.com/ to see what I have done with gimp.
