    Hi

    Reeeeeally basic question (don't laugh) but I have a Mac mini running 10.7.5 as an HTPC to my tv. Recently the screen won't show the full desktop. To see the top of the desktop I have to move the mouse to the top of the screen. To see the bottom I have to move the mouse down (same for each side)

    It's just happened recently and I can't figure it out. I have a trust wireless mouse connected that has 2 buttons on the side. I thought it might have something to do with that but I can't figure it out

    I've tried restarting etc but nothing.

    Any ideas?

    I was just opening iTunes when the screen kind if rotated away and went grey. Then the option to log in again appeared which I did. When the screen rotated back the display was fine!!!


    I have no idea why that happened!!!! But at least my problem is fixed.

    Found out you were absolutely correct t. Zoom was set to come on when you pressed the scroll wheel on my mouse. D'oh!!!!

    You might would want to go into System Preferences->Keyboard , Shortcuts mini-tab and uncheck the key combination to turn off Zoom.
