    Win 98. I cannot resize the icons on desktop. They are huge when I booted up today. I tried to goto control panel>settings>display properties and slide the bar to change screen area. I cannot drag the bar to do this. Reinstalled vid card drivers (voodoo3) and no go. Any ideas? Help much appreciated.

    what color options do you have available.
    You say you reinstalled the voodoo, did you also reinstall the drivers or let windows load them?????

    Hiya

    What is your Screen Area set to? Also, have a look here:

    ControlPanel | System. Device Manager. Display. Is there a yellow ! in there? If not, what does it say for your Video card (name)?

    Regards

    Go into safe mode and you will be able to see and make you changes there.
