Options Window Truncated

Thu Sep 18, 2008 10:45 am

All of a sudden when I open Options>Display Options...the window is truncated.
The right side cuts off about half of the Columns area. I cannot see the arrows to move things up or down.
I am running XP SP3. I downloaded MWP 6.2
Thanks

Can you let me know what resolution you are running, and if you are using regular or large fonts ?

Good Morning,
I am using 1200X800 with normal fonts.
I tried Large and Extra Large fonts and resolutions, 1440X900 and 1152X864.
The problem persists
Thanks

Same behavior here on Windows 2000/SP4 after upgrading to 6.2.1 from 6.1. I also noted this on the thread "Options Pop-up box Problems In Vista". All Pop-up boxes under Tools (Gen. Options, Email Accounts, Spam Tools) are truncated on the right and bottom edges. Since the Pop-up cannot be re-sized, it is impossible to access all of the options. I'm using 1280x1024 with Large Fonts. HTH to come to a resolution of this problem.

Try this Registry Patch, it deletes the setting where the Settings window is placed and it's size. When you open teh Settings window after this it hopefully is of a better size.

Close MailWasher first before running this, otherwise the change will not take effect.

rusticdog,

Your patch worked like a charm for all affected Pop-up windows.

Thanks much

OK! The windows are now the correct size, BUT I have no up/down arrows to adjust the order of columns in Display Options.
Thanks for the help

Ditto to jdhoward, no up/down arrows, but drag-n-drop works in lieu of arrows.
