# Changing the title height in a beamer

How can I change the height of the title in the beamer?

Height of the title block is big and I want to make it smaller and similarly the width of the left block is big and I want to make it smaller too.

I know this is a simple question but I could not find which .sty files I need to look.

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. That way one can identify the beamer template you're using and want to adjust. Include the relevant detail you're referring to as well, since beamer defines a block environment which is different from the blocks you may be referring to (in the header). Also, are you referrin got the frame or block title? –  Werner Feb 18 '12 at 4:38

You may change the frame title by adjusting the frametitle template. The following does this by setting the size to \tiny, flushing the title to the left, and setting the colour to red. You probably want a bigger size: try \normalsize, \small, or \scriptsize.

\documentclass{beamer}

\setbeamertemplate{frametitle}
{
\begin{flushleft}
\color{red}
\textbf{\tiny\insertframetitle}
\end{flushleft}
}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}[fragile]%
\frametitle{Size Doesn't Matter}
\begin{itemize}%
\item Hello.
\item World.
\end{itemize}%
\end{frame}


\end{document}
