Help. My son hit the settings icon and doesn't know what he changed but I can't seem to change the size of the active screen to fit into my viewing area. The bottom part of the screen remains hidden lower than the task bar and I cannot make it scroll any higher in order to "ok" "cancel" or "apply" a new command. How can I change this back?

Assuming you are able to change the screen size to say 800x600 but you aren't able to get to the OK, Cancel or Apply buttons, do this,

Move the screen size slider to the setting you want and then press the "Tab Right" arrow key 4 times and then press Enter. Press Enter again if prompted to Apply the changes.

Let us know what happens.

If that doesn't work, let us know if your running W95, W98 or Windows ME and if this just happened within the last 5 days.
