Until I can locate the zoom button, I can't change the screen size. Until then, you can move your cursor to the upper right corner and reduce the size of the screen. Don't totally send it to the bottom bar. When the screen is partially minimized, go to the sides and corners and move the borders almost to the edges of your screen. This will make the screen look more normal, but won't totally solve the problem. HCCD
