Window content's size problem.

Hey guys,
I'm wondering if somebody could help me with this.
Some applications do not show UI elements correctly.
E.g. During the installation of application, the checkboxes, texts and radiobuttons on the window´s layouts, are larger than they should be. For this reason they are "out of window". For better explanation I've uploaded a screenshot :

Try experimenting with different settings for screen resolution and display in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization till it becomes right. I don't know of any other way and adjusting screen resolution and display may sometimes not succeed.

Did the defect get rectified after reinstallation?

You could also just right click on a empty spot on your desktop and go to resolution.
Please fill in your specs. This will help us help you.
The size of your screen will have a lot to do with these settings. I'm on a 40 inch screen HDMI and my settings would not work on a smaller screen. It's something one has to tinker with to get like they want it. I have found in my case some applications still won't look as I want them to but I live with it.

I have only one such window left that is not as I want. I use a free, tiny little program named Sizer to help me in sorting this out. I recommend that you too try it for your pesky Windows.
