OldER Mycroft 6 years ago In which case click the middle icon in the top right corner so that it shows 1 box as opposed to 2 overlapping boxes. Now, go to the bottom right hand corner and left click and HOLD on the little fresnel markings in that corner. Drag diagonally until the window fills the screen again. When you next close this screen use the 'X' in the top right. When it next opens it should have retained the same sizing/positioning. If not, post back. + 0 Votes Check native resolution setting. nepenthe0 Updated - 6 years ago Click Control Panel > Display > Settings > Screen Resolution. Adjust to preference. Sony Vaio allows you 2 monitor settings, so be sure the 2nd monitor was not inadvertently selected. You will find this just above the resolution slider bar. Also check Display > Desktop and be sure you have selected stretch wallpaper to fit screen. Richard M. Brown, MD/JD admitted to the Oregon Bar P.S. - I hope you're doing defense work, or I'll blame myself for assisting the enemy... + 0 Votes Defense attorney - what a relief! nepenthe0 Updated - 6 years ago Glad it's fixed. I have 2 Sony computers (desktop and notebook), originally equipped with XP MCE and XP Pro (respectively). I purchased them as 'Vista capable' and actually installed Vista Home Premium on the desktop. It was 2 weeks of absolute misery. I reinstalled XP MCE on the desktop, and have had no problems since. Whether or not you can persuade Sony to 'downgrade' your OS to XP Pro, consider purchasing a copy of XP Pro ($299) before June 30th, when Microsoft pulls it from the marketplace. I have a premonition that the frustration you incurred today will revisit you at the most inconvenient occasions. So check your options regarding XP Pro, but if Sony stonewalls, the $299 you spent for XP Pro will seem like a bargain. Rick Richard M. Brown, MD/JD ('Rick') Portland, OR + 0 Votes another possible explanation for the screen size problem Dempsey 4 years ago In case anyone else ever comes looking for a solution I had the same issue. I have had about a 3/4 inch black space down the right side of my screen for probably a year. I have tried everything with nothing ever changing it until just now. In the diplay properties there is an option for two desktop, basically like having 2 monitors. I sure some of you know what I'm talking about. Well it turns out they were each set to a different size and the one I kept trying to adjust was not the active desktop. My eyes are bad and there was some small print that I was'nt paying attention to. It said something about dragging the icons to position them. In the process I activated the other desktop and then realized what had been causing the problem.
