Even worse

by robo_dev In reply to I have an

is when you need to run an older application that is hard-coded to the screen aspect ratio.

This makes it impossible to get to the bottom of the screen on my netbook, which can make the app unusable.

There's a nifty (Windows) utility called 'AltMove' that allows the desktop home position to be dragged, by hitting the ALT key and using the mouse.

by Jaqui In reply to Even worse

never run into that problem with anything but linuxconfig-gtk window
and it you just dragged up until you could get the bottom of the window displayed to select the ok button [ tab wouldn't get it selected ]

the rest of the software never set window size like that.
