resizing the IDE

Author: ulrichmerkel@web.de (ulrich-merkel)

it looks like the IDE always (in MAXIMIZE as well as in NORMAL) eats up the complete screen. is there a way to resize it so I see some other document (like the helpfile with the tutorial)  as well?   update: In the meantime I found a way to chance the mouse cursor to the resizing one   but is the initial size of the screen so wide that it occupies the whole screen ?
