Normally the size of the Stack Trace window can easily be changed using the ResizeArea element in the lower right corner. However, if one makes this window too small, this element disappears.


As Mathematica remembers the last size used for this window, also all future Stack Trace windows are too small now.

CurrentValue[$FrontEnd, {PrivateFrontEndOptions, "InterfaceSettings", 
   "MessageStack", "ImageSize"}] = Inherited

Resets the the size of the Stack Trace window to its default.

Alternatively, one can put InterfaceSettings into the Lookup field of the Option Inspector and change the option setting back to "MessageStack" -> {"ImageSize" -> {600, 300}}.
