Can you re-size the resent task pane in vcenter server.

VCenter Client version 5.5.  The recent task pane only shows about 3 lines with a scroll bar on the side.  In the past I could resize this by dragging the top frame up or down.  However, that doesn't appear to be a feature any longer.  Can this window be resized?

I'm not aware of any changes made to this client, as it's End of Life, and has been for a while. (and so is ESXi 5.5/vCenter Server 5.5!).

if you pinch the line at the bottom of the screen (above the recent) you should be able to drag it up, and change the size of this recent and tasks window.

That is how it used to work.  The cursor would change from a pointer to the pinch tool.  You would then just click and drag.  That doesn't work anymore and hasn't for some time.  Just another reason I am going to have to get used to the web.  (even thought I hate it)  :)
