My screen is too big for its boots

Hi all.
Suddenly, for no reason that I can see, my desktop has extended over the edges of the screen, so that the top row of icons (for instance) are half hidden. I think that I need to shrink the desktop so that everything shows on the screen.
Anyone any ideas?

Either alter the screen resolution or fiddle with the left/right and up/down adjustments on your monitor.

Does it say 'Safe Mode' in each corner of the screen?

If not, right click the desktop, Properties, settings tab, change the screen resolution to the correct value.

There should be manual or software controls built into monitor if it's a CRT monitor
