I use the setting 800x600 on two computers with windows XP. On one it works
great for my bad eyesight, but on the other the whole window doesn't appear
when the window is maximzed. I have checked all the settings I know about and
they are the same on both computers. Is there some way I can change the size
of the window other than in the display setting.

I wasn't able to get the reply page after your reply, so I hope you can see
this. The window is too large, not too small for the screen, and sometimes
there is no way to scroll. Can I use the same proceedure you suggested?

On the machine with the small display...

Right click a blank area of the Desktop | Properties | Settings
tab | Advanced button | Monitor tab | Screen refresh rate.

Fiddle with the refresh rate until your display fills the screen.

You will probably have to lower the setting. Mine is set at 60 HZ.
Some people advise against this setting. It's supposed to make your
screen flicker.

Mine does not flicker. 60 HZ is the only setting that allows
the display to fill my screen.
