problem with task bar at bottom of screen covering web site when it is minimized

I have Windows XP Home   Whenever I minimize a page it goes down to the bottom of the screen under the task bar and I cannot get it back up.  the same thing happens with the top of the screen; I cannot see the x in order to delete it (It is under the task bar at the top of the screen)  I tried moving them around to the top or side but that only caused more problems.

Hi Ritacm,

Have you tried adjusting your monitor's settings. It seems to me like some of the display is getting thrown beyond the actual viewable area of the monitor. Acess your monitor's settings and shrink the image vertically if that's the case.

Good Vibes!

Hi Rita,

It's in your monitor itself. There should be a front panel with several controls for image size, cushioning and more.

Hi Rita,

Looking at the specs for your machine it seems like it doesn't give you a way to adjust display settings. Only thing I can suggest at this point is calling Dell at 1-800-624-9896.

Hi Rita,

One more thing. Since the problem doesn't seem to be Graphics but a display issue, we do have a Laptops topic area at EE and those guys may know the answer to your problem. Why don't you give that a shot? The URL is:
