The display on the screen of my desktop computer is offset by about 75mm, it is moved to the left. I cannot see the start button. So I did a reset to try to clear it, but the display is showing in the same place.

 

Any ideas???

Thanks

Sounds like a monitor setting issue to me.  Download or find the User Manual for your computer monitor.

 

Let us know how you get along.

 

Have a great day.

Hi Phil

 

Thanks for the response.

 

I have visitors from the US arriving today, so I will use my laptop until I can get a chance to investigate.

 

Will update you layer.

 

Once again, thank you,

Hi Phil,

 

As you said I have managed to reset the display.

 

Next problem, The text boxes are far too large. How do I adjust them??

 

Thanks for your help.

Sounds like a resolution/scaling issue to me.  Right click on a blank spot on your desktop, and select display settings and try to adjust the size from there.  It is also possible that there may resolution controls in the monitor, which you can also try.  Consult the monitor user guide.

 

I hope this helps.  Have a great day.

 

Regards,

-Phil

You are most welcome for my assistance.  Good luck.  You should also check and adjust your display scaling settings.

 

Have a great day and all the best in 2020.
