It will be touchy getting the arrows, holding the black bar at the top, in a blank area will let you move the Origin window around a bit so that you can get a better hold on the bottom to resize it.

 

If it's being stubborn and won't get smaller try adjusting you screen to a higher resolution TEMPORARILY to get at it. Be sure to change it back before playing a game.

 

If that fails as well. Click on the word Origin at the top, choose Application Settings and Opt IN to the Beta Client. Exit Origin completely then, allow it to update. There is a fix for scaling issues in the Beta.

Right click on the task bar, choose Properties or settings, whichever is available in your version of windows.

Enable Auto Hide Task Bar.

That will let you get to the bottom of the Origin window and, you can get the mouse pointer to turn into an arrow there, then drag it up a little.

Origin should remember what size you made it so, you can move your mouse to the bottom of the screen and get the task bar to pop up, then right click it an undo the auto hide if you like.
