Element on the desktop have expanded, can't find how to adjust
It seems like the screen has been stretched. We went into control panel, display to see if the size had changed. It hasn't changed, it is on the smallest setting. It seems there should be someway to reduce the sides, top and bottom, on a PC there are often dials on the monitor to adjust the picture, we can find the ability to do this on the laptop. Do you know if there are keys that will enable us to make this adjustment?
