DS 4.5 Pro - Windows Too Big, Features Cut Off

Que ArresQue Arres Posts: 0

When I try to run tasks that open a new window (Reality, SendInTheClones, etc), the window is too large and I can't reach some of the buttons at the bottom. Moving my taskbar doesn't work, nor does hiding it. I can't resize the window (the option is grayed out if I right-click on the top left corner, and I can't reach the bottom left corner at all), I can't drag it up to reach the buttons (it auto snaps back into place), and changing my screen resolution hasn't done anything either (wide or full, there's no difference). I can usually just reach the top of the button I need (such as for Reality), but for others, I have no access to any of the options at the bottom at all.

Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestion for solutions? I couldn't find anything on it anywhere else...

Screen captures below: one of the taskbar at the bottom, and one of it at the side.

    You do need to increase your screen resolution, if you can - if you can't you may need to use the Tab key to move the focus to the hidden buttons and press space to push them.

    As I mentioned, changing the screen resolution did nothing. These captures are from my screen set to the maximum setting (1366 x 768). It also isn't always buttons that are hidden: with Send In The Clones, some of the parameters are too far below the screen, to the point where I can't even eke it up enough to see what they are.

    Yes, I assumed that the limitation was your screen. If the tab option doesn't work either I'm not sure there's anything you can do - some video drivers do give the option to fake larger screens, allowing you to scroll using a special key-combination, but I suspect you are using some kind of netbook that wouldn't support that feature.

    It's a Toshiba Satellite. Not a netbook, for sure, but I've found they tend to have oddly shaped screens. I can make it work mostly, at least. I just wish it would, you know, just let me resize the window. Seems like something of an oversight.
