    Hi All,

    I have a Samsung ActiveX application that runs via Internet Explorer. The window for it has been set to a fixed size and it has been working just fine for quite some time on conventional 4:3 monitors.

    I have just bought a Netbook with 16:9 (1024 x 600) screen and now the window is forced to the "9" height and the bottom 1/4 of the application is hidden and no scroll bars to move it up. I need to get to the control buttons that are in that bottom quarter of the app's screen.

    A myriad of calls to Samsung has achieved nothing as the application is no longer supported. I have a lot of time and money invested in this system and it continues to work well, so I do not want to scrap it.

    I tried changing the screen resolution to no avail.

    I have hidden the TaskBar to get the max screen height, but still the same, it just makes the box taller and wider but still covering the same amount.

    Can anyone suggest how I can get to those buttons at the bottom of the app screen?

    Thanks
