Welcome to the PF, manicmelanie. It's a great place. I'm going to move your question to the Forum Feedback forum, where it will get more directed responses. BTW, my display resolution here at home is set to 1280 x 1024, and my work displays are probably at least set to that. If you right-click in an open area of your desktop and check the performance/resolution, what is your current monitor set to?
