how to shrink page margin on new computer

I got a new computer. My ancient one finally gave up the ghost. The edges of the new computer are too wide. In other words I can only see a third of the back arrow. I need to bring the margins in but only by a little. Any one know the trick? Thanks

Unless your window is maximized, it won't fit edge-to-edge, if you are talking about the web browser window. If it's not maximized, but stretched, it'll fit outside the window.

both my desktop and my web browser page are slightly too large. How would I go about maximizing my window if that is what I need to do?

Then it's not a web browser issue like I first thought, but should be your screen resolution.
So if you are in XP go to start menu > control panel > display.
Vista, should be about the same.
Win7: minimize all windows > right click > resolution.
Adjust the settings, ie, I'm running 1280x800 widescreen, and everything fits to the window. =)

I tried that, sigh, did not help. It turns out I had to reinstall the monitor I use on the computer. It did not come with one. The monitor installed on it was the one they were using at the store where they transferred my info. I am not enjoying having a new computer. Sigh again.

I'm sorry that didn't help. =( Sounds like your computer is giving you a run for your money. =( I take it it is fixed now? =)

the margin problem is fixed but two of my programs are still not running. Hoping to get that figured out today. I have a lot of work related stuff on my computer which is the cause of most of the grief.

Ouch! There are quite a number of reasons that programs wouldn't be working...anything from program directories being deleted, to file corruption, to driver corruption, the possibilities are many. I've been fighting misbehaving programs recently myself, I sympathize.
I hope you get it figured out soon. =)

What's going on with it still? A new computer shouldn't have a whole lot of issues right off the bat.
