    If your monitor is native wide screen then there's not much you can do other than make sure you're using a wide screen resolution. 800x600 is a standard 4:3 format resolution.

    If all you're referring to is your wallpaper then you'll have to either crop the wallpaper to fit the resolution or play with the wallpaper settings to adjust it to your liking.
