    Exclamation UI or windows size

    My screen resolution settings are 640 x 480 and I have also set my fonts to the lowest settings. I still cant see the entire window to readjust the size (IE cant see "close" or "apply"). It sucks! how can I fix this? Help please!

    "System > Preferences > Screen Resolution"
    On my machine anyway

    • What did you try?
    • What did not work?
    • What errors did you get?
    • What hardware are you using?
    • What drivers are you using?

    Red face Re: UI or windows size

    I installed 8.04 on a comp that is using navida gforce so Im assuming after digging around that's part of the problem. I did follow a tutorial and got 800 x 600 resolution to show up in the screen resolution options. Before I was only getting 640 x 350 and 640 x 480 and that was that. So when I was opening a window it was HUGE and I could not see the whole thing to be able to hit the "OK" or "Cancel". So no errors or any thing like that just limited screen res. I am wondering if there is a way to make all your windows a specific size when they open.

    Alt + Left Click and drag the window

    or type:
    Code:
    xrandr -s 800x600
    in a terminal.

    then install the nvidia driver(community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia) and run nvidia-settings as root:
    Code:
    gksu nvidia-settings
    set the resolution and save the changes to the X Configuration File.
