RT & HD laptops screens

(Syv) #1

RT 5.3 and Dell inspiron 15 - 5000 serie with a 15.6" HD screen.

RT doesn’t fit on the screen. The end of the right panel (the numbers and the reset “dingy”) and the bottom with the status bar get cut off. Maximizing doesn’t help.

With the preferences, I don’t even see the About/OK/Cancel buttons.

Is there some setting (or config file) that I can control the width of the panels and the size of the screens?

No screenshot = imaginary help.

Change your desktop scaling to 100% or something that fits your screen, and make the font smaller.

Tried that (set the scaling from 96dpi to 72dpi). Didn’t work.

Here’s a screen capture: https://i.imgur.com/Ewpgk65l.png

It cuts the end of the right panel.

It cuts off the panel even if you resize it?

@foto show a screenshot of the whole screen, don’t crop the screenshot. I don’t see any problem in that little screenshot. RT fits just fine on a “HD screen”. What exactly do you mean by “HD screen”, what resolution is it? “HD” is vague.

I think I have solved the problem (more testing needed). It looks like it has to do with the xfce panels (top & bottom) and setting them both to “intelligent”, now I can see my screen up to edge.

BTW paperdigits mentioned resizing the panels (in RT?) That was my original question: how to I resize the panel in RT because the right one was being cut-off?

How to resize the RT panels?

Just grab the side of the panel with the mouse, click and drag.
