When in safe mode can the resolution be changed ? Because the
dialog boxes are extra large. OS XP Home SP2

Thanks,

Billjh

Is it just the dialog boxes but everything else is OK?

Majority of the settings in Safe Mode can not be changed. If you never changed any of the settings in Safe Mode, then there is probably no way to make the boxes smaller.

The icons and fonts are larger but the dialog boxes ara exceptionaly
larger, where you cannot see the buttons to click apply/ok, you would
have to use the keyboard in lieu of the mouse to execute.

understood....

Check you screen resolution

Right click on a empty place on the desktop and choose Properties and in the new screen choose the Settings tab

See what your Resolution is set .......then try moving the slider to the right and then click ok

Let us know what you find.

If that does not do the trick . . while in the Settings tab, click on Advanced . . lower the DPI setting to 96 or smaller

I changed the settings while in Safe Mode to 1152x864 which is my normal setting and
it reverts back to a 640x480 pixels. Also tried changing the DPI to 96 to no avail.
