    How do I describe this problem...?

    Unlike other Forums I visit, here in the K-lite Forum, when I go to a Forum Topic then click on a specific person's thread (at this point) the window view changes so I have to use the scroll bar on the bottom to view the entire field instead of having everything from the left to the right within my screen area.

    Probably something I can easily change in a setting but I'm just not seeing it. Possibly a Windows setting? I have XP Home, IE6.

    Thanks,
    mrlessk

    What screen resolution do you view the board at?

    Sometimes pictures posted by the people are too huge. So if you are viewing a picture thread it might happen. Otherwise if it happens even with text-only thread then it could be your resolution.

    Hi Virtualbody1234,

    I&#39;ve always used 800x600 as it is set at now. Keep in mind, it only happens in the KL Forums.

    I.am could be on to something here.
    Other Forums I attend (e.g. Lavasoft, Net-Integration) people do not usually post the huge pix as we do here in KL.
    This could be it?

    As an example I just went to the Lounge and picked out a thread (Alex.H) where this occurs...here

    Could it be the combo of my 800x600 screen resolution with the large pix is the culprit?

    Ok folks, here&#39;s what I discovered....looks like it is indeed related to my screen resolution after all.
    Sparsely, I set it as you suggested at 1152x864, restarted and found out:

    >800x600>>NO READING GLASSES REQUIRED

    >1152x866, 1280x1024, etc, etc>>WHERE ARE MY READING GLASSES?

    Answers the question as to why I&#39;ve always used 800x600...lol

    So, it&#39;s compromise time. I&#39;d of course prefer not to have to grab the glasses each time I want to use the comp so, I&#39;ll live with the slight inconvenience of having to scroll from left to right while in the KL Forums (or, for that matter, any other forum I may visit where pix are routinely posted).

    Let me know if you think I&#39;m off base, missing something, or if you want to add something.

    Thanks for your input folks,
    mrlessk

    Okay. You&#39;re missing something.

    Try 1024 X 768. Not too big or too small.

    A very popular resolution, and just right for surfing the web.

    Ok, tried it. Looks like I&#39;m stuck with the large resolution 800x600. Beyond that requires use of the glasses... and, in a couple of years (or less) will probably need the specs for that too.....anyplace I can download 400x300?...

    640x480 is as low as you can go really, and XP doesn&#39;t even support that directly.

    Yep, not in my settings.

    Oh well, this is what keeps people like this in business....Dr. Dean


    Thanks all,
