    Need help,

    I understand this may be a simple question but I tried what i thought should fix the problem.

    I recently purchased a new 19" Viewsonic CRT monitor.

    The problem is when I go on the net, the web page(s) are only half of the screen. It does not fit to the screen. My system is a P4 with XP as the OS.

    I tried changing some of the "internet Options" settings as well as the "Display settings" but unfortunately I had no luck.

    All other applications are fine (ie: word, excel...)

    If there are any suggestions that would be great

    Open a single Internet Explorer window to the smaller size.
    Drag the corners of the window until it completely fills the screen. Do not use the maximize button to enlarge the window.
    Hold down the Ctrl key, keep it depressed, and using the mouse click File and then Exit on the menu bar. Do not use the "X" in the upper right corner to close the window.
    Internet Explorer should now open in a full window.
    If it still opens to a smaller size repeat the above instructions, substituting the "Shift" key for the "Ctrl" key

    Thank you for your response,

    I should have mentioned that the window is maximized but the information contained on it is only half way across the window and the rest it just blue (in the case of msn.com)

    Would this still work?

    The problem is that most websites are optimized for 800x600 resolution. If you are running a higher resolution (like 1600x1200), the information will not fill your screen. You still gain something, though... you get much more vertical information.
