    hi there
    hope I am in the group?
    I use win XP....the image has for some obscure reason gone larger than the
    monitor and I am having to use the mouse to see left righ top and bottom of
    the image. I have gone into disply properties, and the monitor reset
    buttons...but it makes no difference. Any idea what is causing this problem?
    and how to restore the correct viewing?
    regards

    Are you saying the screen scrolls for the desktop?!? Or are you
    referring to the image in Internet Explorer. If the former, you must
    have some special video adapter driver, if the later, you merely changed
    your desktop resolution too low.

    It is the display adapter and associated driver settings that determine the
    desktop size. I find it very handy to be able to set the desktop larger
    than the screen when I use maps.google.com to get a satelite image of an
    area. Google's web interface limits the html/map window to the desktop
    size.

    Here is what I do on my laptop:
    Display properties -> Settings -> Advanced button -> Monitor
    On the monitor screen there is a checkbox for 'Hide modes that this monitor
    cannot display'.
    Uncheck that box to disallow the selection of resolutions that the monitor
    can't display.
