How do I change the size of my address bar (too small) and my Google browser (too large)?


For some reason, when I pulled up my browser one day, my address bar was tiny and my Google browser was very large. I would like to know how to enlarge the address bar and shrink the Google browser. It's beginning to get on my nerves.

Place the mouse cursor between the location bar and the search bar. The cursor should change to a resizer that you can drag left or right to change the width of the location bar and the search bar.
