How do you get your monitor screen back to full size?

Question

I was brushing something off my keyboard while the computer was on and must have hit some key combination that narrowed my screen size (vertical looks unchanged). I seem to remember a keyboard tip that would do this (or something like it) several months ago.

How can I undo what ever it was that I did?

Thanks

I,m not sure of any key combination, but I do know a couple of things yu can try. Go to your display settings by right clicking on your desk top and selecting properties. On my home computer with XP when I go to display settings and then select advanced it brings me to my video adapter controls and from here I can change the horizontal, vertical, etc. settings for my computer. This would be the first place I would start. You should be able to cnange the size and save it. You may also want to try and change your desktop scheme to a new one and this may also change the settings.
