why dont my windows fit in the screen??


hi..
i would really like my windows to fit perfectly witihn my screen but it wont.
ive tried changing xorg.conf, even measured the screen and set it up.
The icon on the window title bar has no 'advanced' option in it so i cant change it that way...
File/Resize doesnt make a difference.
am i doing anything fundamentally wrong?

i dont think thats the problem actually...its not the screen size that matters...its the windows that open for example firefox...
it doesnt fit well.. and i have to keep scrolling across and back to read etc...

No wonder most things are giant and not looking right,... you might want to bump up your resolution to something that isn't terrible. on a side notw, what wm are you using?
