    Start, time too LARGE

    Sorry if this is in wrong Forum...please place in correct Forum...thanks.
    Daughter's HP Pavilion (WinME/IE6+), has just acquired the word Start, the time, and all items that showup in the taskbar (webpage site, programs, etc), but not the icons...as really, really HUGE.
    I am attaching a scrnhot of MY desktop taskbar of what it is supposed to be like.
    Is this an IE Repair job in Add/Remove?
    Thanks for any and all help.

    Lonnie,
    Does she have a copy of "TweakUI"?
    There is a spot under repair, to rebuild icons. I don't know if this will do it but probably worth a try.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    No, TweakUI...I don't have it either...have no use for it.
    It's got to be something real simple...but I have CRS and I'm going bonkers trying to think of where to look to fix this...I know it's an easy fix...but I'm just drawing a blank.

    Re: Start, time too LARGE

    A screenshot showing the problem would be more useful!

    Is it only the taskbar that is affected?

    Right_click on the desktop > Properties > Appearance...
    What is the font size set to?

    Re: Start, time too LARGE

    I used my screenshot of my taskbar as an example of what it SHOULD look like...the Start, time and the website showing are normal...hers is like HUGE...can't do a screenshot of hers - she doesn't have Irfanview for me to do a screenshot from her pc...and I have no idea what font size it is...would have to go over to her house to check that out....doing that later today.

    We know what it should look like, but need to see what the problem looks like.

    As for screen shots, try out "Printkey2000" and install it on BOTH machines.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    No...but I'm not worrying about it. She says that since she isn't on the pc that much...it isn't bothering her either...so I guess that's the end of the problem...for now.
