Solved: Screen size problem in POGO
My spouse loves POGO, but when she clicks to open the final playing screen it has been coming up only at about 3/4 size of the screen. Is there any way to increase the size??

According to Pogo Help.....

Quote:
Java games cannot ‘expand’ to match the size of the window. So, to prevent display problems with the games, we disabled the 'maximize' button and the little arrows that let you resize the window on most of the games. Even if you could resize the window, you’d just see a lot more of that light yellow background we use on most of the game windows. It wouldn’t actually make the game screen any bigger. The best thing to do is choose the largest game screen size setting (on your ‘My Account’ page) that will fit on your desktop, and stick with that.
Quote:
Actually, we changed the size of the windows on purpose. Since there are no ads on Club Pogo, we got rid of the top portion of the window where the ad banner used to load. The amount of space the actual game portion takes up is the same on both. However, the longer and shorter shape of the window is startling some people.
Quote:
Expanding the number of pixels your computer displays is a great way to make the game window fit on your computer even if you have a relatively small monitor.

To change your display resolution on a PC:
1) Click [Start], then click "Settings".
2) Select "Control Panel", and double click on the "Display" icon.
3) On the [Settings] tab you'll find a slider bar. Adjust this bar and then click [Apply].

Mac users can pull down the Apple menu in the upper left-hand corner and choose "Control Panels" then select "Monitors & Sound" and then choose the [Monitor] button.

Make sure your display is set to at least 800x600. Before you apply the changes, check with your Monitor and video card documentation to make sure they both support the display size you're trying to change to. If not, you could get some REALLY crazy problems that are difficult to fix.

Once you determine it's OK to proceed, apply the changes. You may need to restart your computer at this point, but when it comes back up you'll notice that items on the screen are a bit smaller, but you now have more room for large game or application screens.
