Try Alt+Enter to come out of it.
Try right-clicking and choosing properties to disable full-screen vs windowed

Had the reverse problem - wanted to maximise, but solution should be the same. Hit alt tab while in program to minimize onto taskbar, right click on minimized icon and select properties, there is a layout tab that gives height and width. i think it should be 80x50. Set it save when exiting. You will need to go out of program and back in to see if it works.
