    Lightbulb desktop too big for screen ;-)
    On my iMac screeens resolution it seems as if the screen is not big enough for the desktop. It is not a resolution issue but a shortcut i think, because I did somethink this morning that changed it, and now I can't get back.
    I do have all my desktop, but when I take the mouse to the top - my dock dissapears in the buttom and if i go left, the right side of my desktop dissapears.
    I have tried all screen resolutions and go to and back from full screen, but it is not that :-(

    Can anyone help with a shortcut to get me back?

    Hold down CMD and option - then tap the minus "-" key until it brings it back to the correct size.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
