Fede sees my avatar covering much of my posts - does anyone else see it that way? It looks fine on my screen.

Yes I have seen that. Are your display setting at 800 x 600? Perhaps larger would help.

It's fine on mine too. Being only 170 pixels wide it falls well within the specified limits for a non-obstructive avatar. Fédé, are you sure you're not just pulling his leg? ;)

Nope, honest. I really do see an overlap of his avatar onto the text.
So what should i do on my PC to amend this? :shock: :)

Try going to Start, Settings, Control Panel, Display, settings and drag the button to the right, (I have XP Home) increasing the pixels.

I'm in deep trouble.
I took the arrow too far right.
Now I have a black screen with a notice in the middle which says out of range and I don't know how to undo it.

*Phew!*

I managed to clear it by somehow accessing "Restore System settings" and putting it right that way! Cripes that was close!
This is my partner's main work PC and I'd have gotten it in the neck if I hadn't managed to 'fix' it!

Greetings Fede,

Are you able to post a screen shot of the problem?

You can do this by pressing the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard.

Then go into a program like MS Paint and paste it.

Then you can save the image (preferably as a JPG) and then come back here and attach the JPG as an attachment.

Then we can visually see what you're seeing and possibly work out a solution.

Metta,
Retro. :)

I think it must have been something to do with my screen resolution after all, Retro.
After my stupid debacle last night, when I nudged the selection arrow too far to the right and basically deleted my whole screen! ( :roll: ) I managed to redress the "error" by going into startup and opening in safe mode.
Then I clicked "Ctrl/Alt/Delete" and got the Task Master box up, and went into 'help' where I searched for "restore" and followed the instructions to restore system settings to an hour previously!

Listen, for a Technical Fudgewit such as I, this was no mean feat! Technology and I are not easy bedfellows, so this was an achievement of gargantuan proportions for me... in direct proportion to the flak I would have had to endure, from my partner, had I NOT been able to put matters right!

In any case, I then went back into the Screen resolution setting - and cautiously moved the arrow a teeny-tiny bit to the right ( :lol: ) and it seemed to do the trick.

I felt you should all share that with me for the entertainment value alone.
I really do need walking through these things one small step at a time. !

Retro...Which button on my keyboard would be the 'screenshot button', please? :?: :)

Ok, sorry, new question....
I found the button! Again, all on my own! (Don't laugh - I can't help it!)
I even managed to get as far as Microsoft Paint, and paste it, but then when I tried to cut and paste, and put it into here, I don't know how to get it into a post.

Walk me..... :roll:

Sorry Fede that you had such a near disaster. I should have added "move to the right a little bit and then check". But I am basically a neo-luddite and should never give techie advice.

But you have made an excellent discovery - Fede can fix what Fede feared to fix :!:
