Somehow I have managed to change the size of my display so that it is too big for my screen. I have tried changing the 16** X 16** to no avail. The toolbar across the top is no longer all viewable at the same time and if I look at the bottom of the screen, the toolbar disappears completly. What have I done?
Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I possibly can to help answer your questions.

I think this could be an issue with Zoom from Universal Access.

It is rare, but I have seen this happen a couple of times.

Press Cmd, Alt and the minus key on the top row to the right of the numerals.

If it is Zoom, then open System Preferences - Universal Access - Zoom to verify your settings.

Let me know if this still gives a problem, there are more things it could be.

That was ridiculously easy! Thanks so much.

Hi Charlie,

It is a ridiculously easy, but not easy to communicate without actually seeing it, or to know what is causing it.

I remember well being a green horn at Apple, and getting a call about this had happened to someone else, and I was stumped.

Great relief to find what it was, hence I never forgot :)

Let me know if there are any more questions I can help with in future!

Kind regards,
