Unable to see OK to Continue due to window size.

Ubuntu v5.1 + Skype v1.2 on a 14" laptop with 1024x768 (max resolution).

There are two toolbars: one on the top and the other at the bottom.

Skype --> Personal Information is selected and the box that opens up fills up an entire screen and OK button is NOT VISIBLE. Bottom toolbar is over the Skype's Personal Information box and there is no way to select OK to Continue.

How can I move or configure bottom toolbar to auto-disappear, or to not be over the top of other boxes ?


P.S. I remember seeing this happening on a desktop PC with a 19" monitor and higher than 1024x768 resolution; as well as with applications other than Skype.

Right now the only thing to do in this case is to click on X located in the upper right of the Personal Information box to Close the box.

You can move the toolbar (actually the GNOME panel) by right clicking it and selecting the panel configuration. I don't have GNOME handy (I switched to KDE some time ago), but I'm pretty sure that there's an option to move the panel.
