Desktop Background is narrow and on left side.

By coveylane ·
On my laptop with XP, my desktop background picture shows only about a two inch strip on the left side. All icons are within this strip and cannot be dragged out of it. No change if I change background scene or no background at all (only a color). Otherwise it works normal, this only happens on Desktop background. (If I have a scene as a background picture, it shows only a strip of it not the whole thing scrunched into the two inches.) Very annoying and I have tried everything I can think of.

Are you saying just the background picture is missized?

Or the entire desktop? If just the background image, try right clicking with the mouse, choose Properties, then click on the tab Desktop, then look and see what "position" you have as well as any sizes that may be defined. Try choosing Stretch and see if the image fills the display.

I think your monitor show you that background, change the settings to factory made option and than reset your desktop according your like.
