    Please help. Somehow the desktop area is very low and I can't see it all. When I go to change it through properties>settings>, I can't get to the button because of the size of the screen. The button is just below the bottom of the screen and I cant reach it. I can "move" that window up to see the button, but as soon as i touch the mouse or a key to move the cursor, it returns to the way it was and I can't reach the button again. Is there another way to change it?

    If you are using XP after making the changes to the Desktop size, try hitting the "Tab" key 6 times then press "Enter"...

    Not sure which button you are talking about, but if it is the screen size settings slider, ( I can't remember if the slider is on the left or right of the pop up box in 2K ) if on the left after clicking on the "Settings" tab, press the "Right Arrow" key 1 time, then the "Tab" key 6 times ( it could be 4 times I don't have 2K installed now) then press enter...

    I don't think there is a way to change it in DOS...
