Screen size

Hiyya all Have just finished my first build a SB set up and new 24" monitor.

Now it (the build) flies almost having to hog tie it to the desk but cannot find a way to get my monitor screen to show the open window in total.

Ie. the fonts are enormous the right hand side of the open screen is way out in the middle of the room somewhere and I have tried all sorts of ways to get it "normal" and getting nowhere. So annoying because the email list is so thin one cannot read the sender or message it's just the first letter and then..........

I thought right click on desktop would come up with something but apart from changing the icon sizes ???????

I'm doing something wrong I know but am stumped as to what.

Thanks you blokes - I am of course an idiot I have found the problem - the monitor's screen resolution was not set to max - all set now.

One query though is I have a utilies disk from Gigabyte that I would run if it didn't have Norton (conflicts badly with Kaspersky) on it - run it or not?

You can get the utilities here;

newest versions and no "addons" you don't want.
