    Default Desktop Issue

    I have a weird issue that i think it could be easy to fix but i have not found the way to do it, i have windows xp on my computer the problem is my screen seens to be big and moves when i move my mouse, for example if i wanna see my start bottom i have to move my mouse down, if i wanna see my networkplaces icon i have to move my mouse up and right side.

    I would someone give me a hand on this matter.


    Thanks in advanced.

    In a blank area on your desktop > right click mouse > properties > settings tab > adjust screen resolution downwards (one setting at a time until it is centred properly).

    This sounds more like it's the magnifier option being turned on. I forget how to turn it off in XP, though if I remember, it's under Accessibility in Start->Programs. Perhaps someone else knows how to turn it off...
