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?

I'm not sure of any key combination, but I do know a couple of things yu can try: First, go to your display settings by right clicking on your desktop 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 change 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.
