The control element adjustment handle in graphical user interfaces is a little box that appears on the corners and edges of a chosen element, such as another graphical control element like a window. This allows the user to change the size or form of the object. The handle itself does not interact with any other program elements and cannot be selected or moved.
The control element adjustment handle is often called a resize handle or snap handle. It can also be referred to by other names depending on the application.
This article focuses on the desktop environment's implementation of this feature. For information about handles in Windows apps, see the Windows SDK.
In Microsoft Windows, the system provides several different types of handles that allow objects to be manipulated by users or software programs. A handle is any object that refers to another location in memory. Handles are used by windows themselves as well as by applications that want to provide custom drawing capability or behavior when their objects are clicked or touched on the screen.
Change control is a method of controlling any changes made to a product or system in a methodical manner. The goal is to guarantee that no needless modifications are performed, that all changes are recorded, that services are not interrupted unnecessarily, and that resources are used efficiently. Change management ensures these goals are met with success.
Change control includes several processes that should be followed to ensure that changes to an asset (product or system) do not have an adverse effect on its ability to meet its intended function(s). These processes include: change approval, change review, change monitoring, and change closure. Change approval involves determining which changes require formal approval by an executive level manager. This process helps to prevent hasty decisions from being made without proper consideration. Change approval may also involve additional steps such as risk assessment and management, communication planning, training requirements, etc.
After change approval has been obtained, the next step is to conduct a comprehensive review of the changes being considered. This review should include an evaluation of the need for the change, its impact on users, and its cost-benefit ratio. Changes that cannot provide clear benefits with limited costs or changes that cause significant disruptions to operations should not be approved.
Once the need for a change has been determined, it can then be implemented effectively. This requires careful planning and coordination of tasks between those making the change and other groups within the organization.
Adjustment. The act of modifying something. A slight change; a minor adjustment; a modification or alteration.

Adjusting yourself before sleeping is important for a good night's sleep. Going to bed without doing any sort of activity that might cause you to think about things that have been bothering you will help you relax and be more likely to get a good night's sleep.
Modify control is the process through which all requests to change a project's, program's, or portfolio's authorized baseline are collected, assessed, and then accepted, denied, or delayed. All changes that are approved require additional steps beyond simply modifying the authorized baseline. For example, if you were to make a significant modification to a project's scope, you would need to update the project plan as well as any related documentation.
The change control process ensures that important decisions are discussed effectively, allows for input from all relevant parties, and prevents unneeded changes. The process begins with the creation of a change request which is documented evidence that a change is needed. The change request can be created using any means available including online forms, email, voice mail, etc. After it is created, the change request should be reviewed by at least one other person outside of the development team to ensure that it contains all necessary information and to provide an alternative solution if possible. If the change request is found to be complete, then it can be submitted for approval.
There are two types of approvals required before a change can be made to a project: major changes and minor changes. Major changes require extensive discussion among all relevant parties before they can be approved.
Adjustment layers are a subset of Photoshop layers. Rather of creating their own material, they modify the information on the layers behind them. For example, you may use an adjustment layer to boost a photograph's brightness or contrast without affecting the original image. When you finish making changes, you can remove the adjustment layer to return the image to its original condition.
ADVANCED ADJUSTMENT KNOB: A fast control that enables rapid focusing by moving the objective lens or stage up and down. It is used to sharpen the initial focus.
SHARPKNIFE KNOB: Similar to the advanced adjustment knob, but it is slower to move because it is more rigid. This allows the user to make fine adjustments to the focus while still retaining enough torque to resist any movement caused by vibration or other factors.
SKEWCHANCE KNOB: For correcting misalignment between the optical axis of the lens and the center of the image sensor. The camera body may have been dropped with the lens mounted on it, for example. Without correction, this misalignment would cause images to be focused at different distances from the lens. The skewness value can be entered into the menu system to automatically adjust the lens alignment.
DOPPLER EFFECT MODIFIER: Used in conjunction with a motorized zoom lens or camera body with a built-in zoom feature. Allows the photographer to simulate the effect of a handheld camera moving through space by repeatedly capturing images of the same subject at different distances.
ZOOM LENS: Enables close-up photography by reducing the distance between the object being photographed and the lens.
