Is it possible to change the size of FolderBrowserDialog object, rather then the user requiring to resize the box (default size is too small).

you cannot resize the FileDialog in .Net directly.

There is a protected method 'HookProc' in all dialogs. This method provides you access to dialog creation process. But the OpenFileDialog is sealed. So you will not be able to use it directly. You need to use windows API's that support this method. I found this link...

Another relatively easy solution you can find at:

CommonDialog.HookProc Method
