    I bought my wife a Toshiba Netbook NB 205 a few weeks ago with the 10.1" monitor viewing space. It is great, but I have found a problem. I was installing Adobe Reader and today when I tried using it, a menu popped up for me to agree to the EULA. The only problem, when I got to the bottom of the page, the button to click on was not visible. I hit enter and all that got me was "Back" and "Quit." I have the monitor on its greatest setting, but it still does not show. I tried moving the menu, but it will not move up or down so I can see the controls at the bottom. So, how do I deal with menus like this where I cannot see the controls to make my selections and I need to do so in order to get the program to start working? Is there a keyboard sequence that may be used to cause the control buttons to show?

    Hi Ray,

    Netbooks can be difficult with some software. Unless you absolutely must use Adobe Reader for some reason, try Foxit Reader. It takes less resources and does a great job, and I did not have any problem getting it set up on my netbook. You can download Foxit here .

    If you do install it, watch the screens carefully. You have to make a decision to install or not install some extras. Just choose "custom" install so you can disable or enable the items you want. I use Foxit for all my PDF needs. I do not use some of the tools it makes available, but I am told you can annotate your PDF's.

    With the dialog open, type CTRL-SPACE, then M. This will change the cursor into a move window icon. You can use the arrow keys to move the dialog box around.
