can only see a small corner of the email page

my email page seems to have all but dissappeared! I can only see the top left hand corner, cant see the top right hand boxes to enlarge, I can only see the top row of boxes as far as part of the send & recieve box.

Any ideas how to fix this, bearing in mind I am not at all technical

Hi there Why are you using such an old program .. When Windows Live Mail is available .. Outlook Express is not designed for Windows 7

If you can see it on your screen (monitor) the Snipping Tool should work. I understand you can't see all of the email page. Seeing what you can see might help us understand things and then again it might not.
