    EEE PC windows don't fit

    First off, thanks for the awesome EE PC from the raffle. I love this thing and finished getting security, etc set up on it.

    Now, the small problem. Is it me or on the Windows XP install of the EEE PC 701SD, have they supplied a screen that is too small for Windows XP to actually run? As an example, I am now running the EEE PC with a 800x600 resolution requiring me to scroll the desktop down to see the taskbar and system tray. In it's native 800x480 (or there abouts) resolution, even with the taskbar hidden I get system windows such as My Computer being too tall for the screen and the bottom vanishes off the screen. Also, it pops up a message that the screen resolution is too low for Windows to work correctly unless I use 800x600.

    Is there any way to shrink the size of the windows and fit everything on? I tried messing with title bar button size but made the system tray too tiny to be useful so had to put it back.

    Which one did you get ?

    Eee PC 901 has a resolution of 1024 x 600 and the 701 is 800 x 480

    i'm guessing it is the later model..

    Hmm, i dont think there is away... after doing some googling people end up using the AltMove alot on the 701.

    Cant you increase the res in Display Properties?

    I have, hence why it slides around the screen to have to see the taskbar. Guess I'll have to get used to it. Bad Asus giving small screens!

    I cant remember the name for this setting as i never need it.

    Go into the display properties where you set your resolution, then click advanced. In the is there a setting to change something to small or extra small? try them

    I think that is the DPI option, but it is greyed out.
