Hi I run windows 2000 and I have the oversize problem with just one site...AVG "you type" alt +spacebar but no words appear anywhere but when I press the keys ALT+spacebar the small popup appears but Size is greyed out! just what I don't need
i have just brought a new monitor samsung syncmaster740nw everything on my screen is too large i have tried altering the resolution but it wont let me move the little slider can anyone help
I tried your Alt+space 'x' with no help. My window is too big for my screen and I can't print what I need to print. I can't see the 'OK'. I defaulted my larger print with no help, as well as restored point[if that is what it is called] I tried the DPI back to 96 from 192, to no avail. I have tried everything I know on this Windows Vista which I realize is minimal. Please help me Leo!
This is related to the issue, but reversed. my windows are supposed to be bigger (the info runs off the page) but i can't enlarge the windows! Please help!
I have the oversize problem, but when I press Alt & Spacebar the box appears but the SIZE is grey so I cannot re-size. Is there any other way of re-sizing apart from minimizing? The sliding around does not work either.
I have the same problem as Mike (April 2007) even the desktop is too big, extending slightly off the top of the screen.
Maybe Nvidia automatically updated the drivers on my computer? I have not changed anything and I have not downloaded anything intentionally.
Since I keep my start bar at the top of the screen (I was used to Mac before Windows) at first I thought it had simply disappeard. I have moved it back to the bottom but now program windows and icons are cut off at the top.
There are a few people saying that their desktop is too big for their monitor on the Net but there do not seem to be any solutions other than changing desktop resolution which was not a solution.
I think that when I turned off my screen I pressed the auto resize button by mistake.
The autoresize button tries a variety of sizes and then choose the best one. But it seems to require that I keep my finger pressed on the auto-resize button for the duration of the process.
But I think that I pushed the button for too little time and the screen resized to an incorrect screen size, and did not have time to realise that the size was incorrect. So the screen got stuck at the wrong size.
All I needed to do to correct the issue was to keep my finger pressed on the auto resize.
I am using a LG Flatron L1953T screen.
I hope that this information is useful to someone else.
The resize or the Restore icon in the windows are greyed out. It happens with all the applications I open.. If there is a setting in the registry to reset the "Windows Frame" values to default, please let me know...... :(
my window is too large, wider than my screen--I did the alt+spacebar--menu popped up--but the 'SIZE' is not in Bold, and does not respond--please help!
window too large...followed your directions but stop after finding f4 point cursor..When I move it with right and left arrow keys nothing happens so therefore I can't hit enter and be done..can you advise?
