I am using a Samsung N145 Netbook with a resolution of 1024x600 and use 'Stella' an Atari 2600 Emulator.
The dialog box for selecting a ROM (game) - I cannot see the buttons at the bottom of it which is an annoyance. I can see that I can resize the select rom window (right click > resize) but it never resizes and only stays at the same window size (900x600( when I get my mouse and try and drag the corners.
Am I doing something wrong? What's the correct way to resize a window? Any help appreciated. Cheers
Some windows are fixed size and wont let you resize them. I have seen then with some of the moksha windows and 3rd party stuff (like python qt5 app). I dunno why that and find it annoying especially when I want to make a window bigger to see truncated text.
1024x600 will indeed be too small for some windows I think. You can move the window with alt/mouse like suggested to get to buttons, but if its not resizable, the only other thing you can do is change your scale factor. If you haven't already reduced it to 1.0 or less, try that. Settings Panel --> Look --> Scaling
Cheers enigma, I looked into scaling and only if I go down to about 0.5 can I get it to appear in full, but to be honest the letters are so small I can hardly read it (all sing: my eyes are dim I cannot see ... I have not brought my specs with me).
I think the issue with this is that Stella dialog is a fixed size and there just ain't anything I can do about it as the except use HippyTaff's suggestion as above as a workaround. Many thanks all.
------ Oh my good gawd ... please keep anything posted below nice and simple.
yeah I think these days most app developer guidelines suggest making minimum resolution 1000x700, to fit on 1024x768 and 1280x720 as those are pretty much the lowest resolution anything is expected to use anymore. So if yer less than those, its likely some applications will require you to move the window to see it all, or shrink it to uncomfortable size.
There is another alternative, although I'm not familiar with how to do it. You can make your desktop bigger than your screen. Then you move around your whole desktop to see stuff.
