Web Pages showing in Widescreen!!!!!!

  LIVING_ON_BORROWED_TIME 21:42 26 Jun 2004


How can I stop some pages (email, forum pages, ebay etc.) appearing in widescreen. Cos its doing my head in.

For instance I might look at one page then click to the next and it gets stretched and is a bugger to read!!

I'm using AOL 9.0

Any ideas

Thanks in advance.

I dont belive webpages were viewable in widescreen?

The right hand side of the page is off the screen.

I assumed that they are in widescreen?

But it is a pain in the but having to drag side to side to read the page!

Have you tried resizing or changing screen resolution ?

How do I do that??

I thought it might have been a settings issue but some pages are ok then others are half off the page??

What resolution are you using in Windows? Is the text distorting or are you just getting a horizontal scroll bar? Copy the URL from the address bar on a page where this happens.

with win xp right click on your desktop-go to properties-settings- you will see a screen resolution slider,move it down to 1024*768 and click apply.
after playing certain games i have to do this to return my desktop to its correct state.

I'm using 800 x 600.

1024 x 768 is a strain.

I'm getting a horizontal scroll bar

Try resizing your windows by r/click and hold the bottom corner and drag left to make the window smaller.

Maximise the window everytime this happens. You can maximise by:

Pressing button (right hand side)
Double Click the top of window
Right Click Window icon and select maximise
Right click taskbar button and click maximise

Is problem occuring on PC Advisor page? It shouldn't.
