    I wanted bigger print so I changed my screen setting to 720X480. That was a big mistake because I can't change it back to another setting.
    The bottom of the Display Properties window
    that has the "ok" button is out of view ( below my screen.) That means I can't click "OKAY" to
    change a new setting. Can anything be done?

    Perhaps use the Tab key to switch buttons and the spacebar to push it.

    I don't know how many tabs it will take to get to ok, but trial and error should fix that.

    Cheers,

    Right Click on the top bar of the window and select move. You will see a pointed cross and the UP/Down/Left/Right cursor control keys on the keyboard will move the window.

    If the above suggestions don't help the okay button is usually highlighted by default so just try pressing your enter key.

    Using the Tab key to move around and the arrow keys should do the trick. Set the resolution back to 600X800 Pixels. Once done, use the tab key to move to the Ok Button and press Enter.

    I tried that. The window was flush to the top so there was nowhere to move to.
    Thanks anyway.

    Moving the TAB key did the trick. Thanks

    It will move the top off the screen so you can see the OK button.
