Suddenly I find that if I have open Windows files, folders, wordpad, etc, my browser tabs at top are obscured. In order to see the tabs I must always minimize or reduce size of other windows,  Very inconvenient, costs time.  I don't know whether I inadvertently changed something, or the style has been changed by Windows.  How can I fix this?

Hello Lermanuel
 

Is there a chance that you (or someone else) played with the "F" keys at the top ?

On most keyboards the F12 key (F10 or F11 on others) expands your desktop image to beyond your "normal" size. Next if they are not the answer >>

 

>> Now go to Start > Control Panel > Display, and from there adjust the Screen size to suit what you want.

 

Do these help at all ??

Thanks.  In the mean time I restarted my computer and things seem normal now.  I should remember that this is often the solution.  Yes, it is possible I hit some button unintentionally.
