    The display is set at the largest setting by accident. Now all the icons don't fit on the screen.I tried to change the settings but the "APPLY" button isn't on the screen. I tried to move the window up and the task bar down, but I still can't reach the apply button. Please help me!:(

    Hello!

    Are you trying to change youre screen resolution? And the display dialog box is too big for the screen? Change it to the size you want (800x600?) then instead of clicking "Apply" you should be able to just hit "Enter".

    Try that.

    If not, then press Alt-spacebar and select move.


    use the arrow keys to move the window until you can see the ok button. then hit enter to lock the window in place and click the button.

    I just got through helping a friend do this over the phone! You can't see the "Apply" button but can set the slider to something like 760x1024? No prob...do that and then hold Ctrl and hit enter...should return to that size.
