smegge November 29, 2006 at 22:07:26 Specs: win 98, not sure
Monitor display is too large for screen size of monitor when trying to change settings through display properties screen cannot move desktop/cursor/mouse etc to reach setting tab. Can adjustment be made in an .ini file to change resolution to 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768? The display is just too oversized to move and grab ... the screen won't resize only move.
The ALT-Space-M keys didn't help. I'd already used the move function within that window. Since the window couldn't be resized, I couldn't get to the resolution change section of that active window. Don't know exactly how the following affected my problem, but I finally brought up the system in Safe Mode using the F5 key at startup. The desktop was normal size and I could access the monitor display and reset the monitor display settings. I completely shut down the system, brought it up in normal mode and for whatever reason, the screen size held and desktop was back to normal. Thanks for your ideas and help. I did take jboy's suggestion and place the settings icon in the task bar. Thanks folks.
