Back in the old days, I once had a program that allowed me to have a "virtual" desktop. While my screen resolution was only 640x480, I could have a much larger desktop which I could pan around inside of. It wasn't multi-monitor, and it wasn't multiple independant desktops, the start menu actually stretched outward and moving the mouse to the edges of the screen caused the "panning window" to move around my virtual desktop.
Does such a tool still exist that works on Vista?
Reason I ask is that my computer is hooked to my TV with 1024x768 max res and some poorly written programs have boxes that are bigger than the screen!
