monitor only displaying 1/2 wallpaper

July 23, 2010 at 15:02:52
Specs: Windows XP
My desktop only displays 1/2 the screen on the left. When I log in as a VISITOR the entire desktop is fully viewable. Why is this happening for one user logged in and not another? How do I either move all my documents and programs to a new user so I can view the entire desktop? Or how do I remedy this problem? I already tried reloading the monitor driver. THis is happening only for the admin user.

sallydixon, SWAG, maybe you simply need to resize the screen? When you see the 1/2 screen, move the cursor to the short edge. Does it become a double ended arrow?
If it does, drag/drop the edge the way you like and use the close option found under 'file' rather than the handier 'X' (only needs to be done once).
That forces Windows to 'remember' settings and use them on the next boot.
