SAVE as .. SAVE button missing in Save Dialog (solved)

Hi all

Just a stupid little problem with W7 I noticed which is VERY confusing but simple to fix.

I changed via the dialog the TEXT SIZE via the screen resolution in the control panel to CUSTOM SIZE.

With one of the newer "Cinema" or Very Wide screen (1680 X 900) displays after I'd increased the text size to over 160 % I didn't get the possibility to SAVE any documents any more via the SAVE AS button. The SAVE dialog would appear but the SAVE button was missing.

The effect was noticed in Office 2007 (all programs) Notepad etc etc.

Seems to be a Windows fault as this should not be allowed to happen.

on more traditional "Squarer" type monitors -- no problem.

I couldn't find the answer by googling but a bit of "trial and Error" fixed the problem.


Cheers
jimbo

What exactly did you do to fix the problem? You can't have "solved" in the thread title if you don't post the solution...

Hi there
you didn't read the post as HERE is the answer

.....I changed via the dialog the TEXT SIZE via the screen resolution in the control panel to CUSTOM SIZE. .......

In your quote of my post you've even quoted the above bit..

Changing the standard text size back to something like a maximum of 160% fixes it.

My bad, sorry. I gues I misunderstood what I did read. A side effect perhaps of always giving step-by-step instructions that anyone can understand?
