LCD displays are not controlled the same as CRTs so the typical adjustments are determined by settings you will find under 'Display' in the Control Panel.
The horizontal and vertical resolution are probably currently misset.

How do I adjust the image width on this wide screen? Everything appears distorted and wider than it is. I would like a narrower image.


This is one of the problems with the wide aspect screen. Most images seem to fit best on the older monitors.
You can go into the video properties and choose one the the display types that best display your image. Unfortunately, by taking a normal (to us) image that looked just fine on an older monitor and displaying it on a newer, wide-aspect monitor, you're gonna distort the image or crop it in a way you didn't expect.
My advice is to experiment with the display until you find something you can live with.

rotate the flywheel to adjust it.

Some options can only be enabled or disabled. There are also some
options that contain additional menus.

Width and height ratio


You need to set your PC video output resolution to the native resolution of this monitor, which is 1680X1050 @60Hz.
Right click on the desk top, the display properties will come up, click on setting tab, then you will see resolution setting choice.

You need to set the PC VIDEO resolution to the native resolution of the monitor to get correct aspect ratio (not adjustable at the monitor, the adjustment is doen at the PC VIDEO card setting), you need to find that out from your monitor owner manual.

The screen is stretched there is nothing distorted


What kind of monitor? They can all be adjusted for width and height by using the buttons along the bottom of the screen. Often it can be confusing and a bit of a pain but look under the monitor menu for 2 sets of icons that look like 2 boxes on top of each other both horizontal and vertical. That is how you adjust it.

My new 19 inch 1952 LG monitor stretched my display picture from what I use to have on my 17 inch. How do I adjust the height to width ratio for a picture that isn't distorted?


Right-click your desktop, click properties
go to 'settings' and select the 19 inch monitor
now change the resolution to the format you want to use.
Set it to something like 1600x1200, or 1024x768

MS Frontpage and Macromedia Flash


There should be a tab to enter HTML. Once in there just put in something like this: Adjust your height/width and name accordingly. This is the most basic of codes and there are a few FAQs out there if you want to get a little fancier with it.
