My picture is cut off at the top, how do i shrink it horizontally.?

depending on the television

inside the TV
there might be vertilce center adjust, and or a verticle height adjust pot

if not an advance engineering technician could modify a fixed resistor and or capacitor in the vertil scan ic circuit.

also the deflection coil could be pushed up against the back of the CRT more tightly.

the H and V deflection fields change their focal distance ... and if the coils are slid back away from the crt face, the top and sides get cut off..

only and expert should ever consider such adjustments and anyone going inside of a tv should take great caution, as there a hihg voltages present that can kill.
