View columns does not work right when maximizing window

Hi, apologies if this has been covered, I searched a bit and could not find anything.

Using SAS 9.2 TS 2M3

As an example, let's say I have a dataset with 40 variables. When I'm in SAS explorer, and I right-click on a dataset and choose "View columns":

1) A non-maximized window appears with the top ~15 variables visible.

2) I click on the window to maximize, which should show all the variables but does not.

3) What happens instead is those ~15 variables are visible, and a lot of white space underneath the 15th (or whichever one was the last visible in the window before it was maxmized).

4) In order to see the remaining variables, I can click/select the bottom variable, then use my down arrow key which then magically makes the others appear, one by one as I down-arrow.

Is there a way to fix this where either the window opens maximized automatically (which MIGHT work to show what should be shown), or to fix whatever refresh/update issue is causing the list not to be "refreshed" or made visible when the window is maximized?

Thank you.
