Hello. For some reason the active desktop is small now, as if in safe mode, but this is happening when booted in normal mode. It is driving me crazy. Nothing in help anywhere on the computer has anything on how to restore desktop to normal size, other than in "Screen Area" (in Control Panel - Display - Settings) which does nothing to fix the problem. HELP! How do I get the desktop back to full-screen?

If you right click the desktop, click properties then settings and are unable to change the resolution from 800 by 600 to 1024 by 768 then clicking apply, something may have upset the video adapter drivers

Re-installing / Updating these should help

That was it! I would never have thought of this, so thank you so much. I had no idea what to do.

I did some searches and found that the maker of my computer has downloads available for updating this. I did, and it's all fixed! THANK YOU!!!!! :tazz: :) :)
