    Cannot reach OK button in Users and Groups

    I select
    Applications -> System Tools -> Administration -> Users and Groups
    My own user account is highlighted.
    I click on Advanced.
    I enter password to authenticate, then select the Privileges tab.
    I need to untick a few options, and tick a few.
    But I can't reach the OK or Save button which I presume is near the bottom of the form, out of sight. The form is taller than my desktop, and doesn't seem to be resizable.

    Any workrounds, playmates?

    Are you able to hit the "TAB" key and tab down to where you need to be?

    Does holding down ALT and dragging the window work?

    Pressing Tab might well work, but the view doesn't follow the focus.

    Holding Alt while doing a mouse left-button drag does bring the OK button into view, so I can click it.
    It also reveals that, after my last tick or untick, what I needed was
    Tab, Tab, Return.
    Thanks to both of you.
    I will leave this thread marked UNSOLVED for a little while, in case any other solutions turn up.
    I must say that I am surprised that such a simple-to-fix error was released.
    I'll try to track down the development team and apprise them.
    Thanks, again, playmates!
