Missing a little off bottom of screen?

Hey guys,

Im new to the mac but it seems like I'm missing like a 1/8" off the bottom of my screen. The indicator light is barely visible and when I move the mouse down there it almost disappears into the bottom of the monitor. Can I adjust this??

How to attach an image to your MR post.
Though a screenshot will probably not show what you mean?

THANK You


This pic is exactly how my dock looks. Is this normal? Seems like it should show the indicator light and bottom of dock more.


Thumb resize.

Looking at some videos on youtube it seems like other users docks are more visible than mine.

Looks fine for OS X Mountain Lion; there was a huge change in the dock compared to Lion.

Oh, ok. I thought it just seemed weird that I could barely see the indicator light.

Yeah the indicator lights from 10.5-10.7 were changed in 10.8 and now display this way. I do prefer the old way though.

This photo is a good example between the two.


And here is the old dock with indicator lights.

Yeah those lights in Mountain lion kinda feels like awkwardly designed, as if they had no brilliant place to put them. Personally I would crop off that last edge and add some glowing light down behind the icon or something

Yeah, the old way was a whole lot better.

I don't understand why they changed it...when I updated to Mountain Lion I thought for a second that they got rid of the indicators. Was pretty angry when I noticed they're just barely visible.
