There are some restrictions on the use of the minibuffer window,
however. You cannot switch buffers in it---the minibuffer and its
window are permanently attached. Also, you cannot split or kill the
minibuffer window. But you can make it taller in the normal fashion
with @kbd{C-x ^}. The minibuffer window expands vertically as necessary
to hold the text that you put in the minibuffer. Customize the variable
@code{max-mini-window-height} to control the maximum height for resizing
the minibuffer window: if a floating-point number, it specifies a
fraction of the frame's height; if an integer, it specifies the maximum
number of lines; if nil, the minibuffer window is not resized. The
default value is 0.25.

@vindex resize-mini-windows
The minibuffer window expands vertically as necessary to hold the text
that you put in the minibuffer if @code{resize-mini-windows} is
non-@code{nil}. If @code{resize-mini-windows} is @code{t}, the window
is always resized to fit the size of the text it displays. If
@code{resize-mini-windows} is the symbol @code{grow-only}, the window
is enlarged only, until it becomes empty again, at which point it
shrinks to its normal size again.
@vindex max-mini-window-height
Customize the variable @code{max-mini-window-height} to control the
maximum height for resizing the minibuffer window: if a floating-point
number, it specifies a fraction of the frame's height; if an integer,
it specifies the maximum number of lines; if nil, the minibuffer
window is not resized. The default value is 0.25.
