RIGHT click on a blank area of the desktop, choose "Properties", then click on the "Settings" tab.. Once there, move the Screen Resolution slider to something like 1024 X 768, then click on apply, then OK. (Or pressing the "Enter" key should also execute the change.)
Hope this helps.
All was fine until someone pushed something this morning, trying to get my netbook attached to their projector for a presentation. Now the windows (yes, Windows XP Home Edition, and Outlook Express as well)are too "tall", so that I cannot see the bottom tool bar at the same time as the top tool bar. I have looked everywhere for a fix and nothing works. The Alt+space opens the box, but not with the "size" option available (it's dim). The "offender" is not offering to help. I would really appreciate your help--something simple, as I would not dream of doing one of the suggested approaches of rewriting some kind of code (if I even knew what it meant!!)
Thank you in advance! You all are usually just terrific!
