Yes, it's regrettable.
Long ago, web pages were small and designed for a screen with 640 x 480 resolution. Then came the time that 800 x 600 was a common size. But screens get bigger and bigger (especially the screens that webpage-designers use themselves) and existing monitors don't.
A Dell laptop with Windows 2000 typically is rather old, so I don't expect a 1920x1024 widescreen.
- See if you can set the screen to a higher resolution. Right click on an empty part of the desktop, choose properties and find the right tab. Usually it's a slider. Most likely it isn't possible and if it is, you might not like the resulting image quality. But you might be lucky.
- Accept the situation as it is.
- Buy a new laptop with a bigger screen.
I can only see about 3/4 of my webpages and sometimes forget that there's more to the right (have to scroll left and right sometimes to read something ... or missed options/ buttons that's to the right of the screen... ).
How can I fit the web page to my screen?
I'm running a Dell laptop (Inspiron) with win2000 and IE 6.0.
