I have the exact same problem on a newly installed Lazarus 1.6.2 IDE.
It is put on a Raspberry Pi3 running the latest Raspbian PIXEL, where
the desktop has been changed to minimize window borders.
So I thought it was due to an incompatibility with the new RPi

I started a new thread here named "Lazarus IDE not sizeable on
Raspbian PIXEL" since I had not seen this thread yet.

Now it seems like the problem is not an RPi related one but a general
Lazarus issue...

Since this thread has failed to answer the original question of Donald
Ziesig I would like to revive it so it will not be forgotten.

It is extremely annoying that the main window on top cannot be
resized, not to a wider size extending the width of the screen nor to
a smaller size if need be.

Why was this change done?
