    I'm having trouble with changing my views. Working with graphics the pics don't appear clear. Task bars are too large and I can't change them. When I pull up my web home page I need to scroll left or right to view the whole page. I used to be able to view it without scrolling. I have gone into the control panel, but can't seem to fix the problem. Help - this is driving me crazy!!!

    get a bigger monitor LOL

    you went to control panel, display [or right click on empty place on desktop, click active desktop, customize]

    -is your screen resolution the same as before, ie 800x600 or 1024x768?, same colour settings?

    -click advanced, what's the font size setting? nromal, large ?

    reset the values to what they should be, or as you remember them

    also - do you use a wheel mouse/scroll mouse?
    - on the webpage, hold the control key down, and scroll back (bigger) or forward (smaller) a click at a time to adjust view

    Thank you, I was very close in finding the solution on my own - thanks for the help - okay, now the little pictures on the left of the screen, mine is the mickey mouse - I cannot see it clearly. I need a sharper picture.

    Also, on the right hand bottom corner of my screen where the clock is located there is a small picture of a printer, sound, and a couple other little pics - they are very fuzzy! How do I fix this?

    it'd be easier if you provided some info:

    monitor size?
    the settings i asked about last time:
    screen resolution you're using (ie 800x600, 1022x768 etc)
    colours setting (256, 24 bit etc)
    what OS (W98, 2000, etc)

    the settings: 800x600
    colours setting: right now set at 256

    The size is ok now - that I got, but the images are fuzzy!
