Dell Netbook Display Help

I am installing an application and can not see or move the window to be able to click on the next button at the bottom of the screen.  This is a Dell Latitude 2120.  Window is set as small as it allows.

Any Ideas?
Thanks,
Bob

I was assuming <enter> as default button but hit a screen that apparently that is not the case.  Guess i will get a monitor.

The window stop moving up as soon as I reach the top of the display.  This seems like it should be simple but nothing is working.

Larger monitor is only showing the same as the netbook.
