No, my desktop is now never shows the routine complete view of menu bar on the top and the dock on the bottom and also the left and ride sides of the desk top window do not appear at the same time. I have to keep moving the mouse to each side or up and down to view all the icons on the desk top. Sorry, I can't seem to explain it more precisely. It just that the all the usual icons on the desk top do not appear at the same time, as they have for at least the last 20 years. This is a new problem that won't go away.
command option 8 does not work. I just tried this again and got no results. I had already tried this option before I got online to Just Answer.Mac. A friend told me about it, and it did not solve the problem so I contacted you. Hope you can still solve this problem. Thanks
Sorry John, but my screen still does not shrink. I've tried each thing that you have suggested. What a crazy problem.
Something weird just happened this minute. As I was about to send you this message, the screen shrunk down to normal, and as I was about to erase this message, the screen zoomed out larger than ever. Some windows get popping up each time I clicked the mouse on the words I was about to type, and I could not get rid of these scroll down windows. What now?
Yes, I keep checking the zoom. It is on OFF
I'll do the process as you instructed
John, you have solved my problem!!!! My screen is back to normal!!!
If this happens again, do I just follow all your instructions again?
thanks a lot, Esther
Thanks again for your help, John. I am 81 years old but still play with my computer, mostly photoshop and emails. And of course some online.
