Default Screeen Resolution/Size Issue - 09-22-2009, 12:58 PM

Obviously, the screen size of the Dell Mini 9 is quite tiny but I was wondering if there were a way or a trick to get some programs to fit into the screen.

Like for instance, Photo Booth came default with Leopard and I tried to use it but the proggy just won't fit into the screen. I can't resize it to fit and I can't get it to full screen and fit. It goes beyond the bottom of my screen. It's not a huge deal with that app because I can't see myself using it a lot but it would be nice to use to entertain my girlfriend's kids with simple apps like that.

Is there a way to make certain apps fit into the screen or do I just need to find alternatives?

Yes. Please follow the instructions in this thread

It is a nifty little app that you can use to scale the app and then go back to "normal"
