View Full Version : Program window missing right hand end

23-08-2004, 12:46 AM
My new Dell XP home has a program called 'Creative Diagnostics' for the 'Soundblaster Live' sound card. The window has no maximize box between - and x at the top right. The text runs off the window at the right and by the look of things two or three words are missing from each line. I could live with that, but the button which starts the tests is also off the edge of the window! I have tried dragging the edge of the window, it won't move; I've changed my screen resolution down to 800x600, no change either. Is there any way that I can see the right quarter of that window?

Does your monitor have buttons to adjust the screen?
If so you may be able to move the whole screen image left.

Using the blue bars,at either top or bottom of the window, drag the window to any handy spot. It doesn't have a maximise button as standard (on mine anyway)

Try a double click on the title bar

Dave, The window doesn't fill the screen. That's why maximizing it would help if it could be done.

R2x1, The window sits in the middle of the screen and occupies about 1/2 of it. Dragging it has no effect.

Rob99, Double clicking the tittle bar has no effect.

I did try all the usual things before posting this problem. Vince

Try adjusting your fonts to a smaller font

This will happen if the default Windows font has been changed to a larger font.

Dialogue box dimensions are often fixed, and a larger font simply flows the content out of the box, making it inaccessible.

Not quite right GF but you led me to the answer. It was the 'Dots per Inch' setting; Thanks. Vince
