    make the screen smaller on my imac? I have a page I am rying to edit but when I try to scroll down to the bottom of that page to save the edit, I cannot see the save button. I have the dock buttons on the right but cann make that page smaller. Any idea as to how I can do that? I have tried to grab the right hand corner but it doesn't make the page smaller to the point where I can see at the very bottom of the page. Any help here?:mad:

    Could you post a screenshot :)apple: + shift + 3)? That might help to know what exactly you're talking about. :)

    Understood

    when I go to a post new reply, and hit the paperclip button, I get another window with files but is the file I took a screen shot of in that window? If so how can I tell which one it is? There is no indication for me to know. I am new with this imac and am learning as I go along.

    In the new window, click on the first "Browse..."-button, choose the file (should be on your desktop), click on "Upload" a little bit beneath and wait till it says that the file is uploaded. Now you can close the window and post the answer.

    Did you press :apple:, shift and 3 at the same time? If so, you should see an image-file on your desktop. If you don't, try a finder search for Picture 1

    I see the file on my desktop

    that is where I uploaded it from. When I click on the paperclip, it takes me to a window where I choose the file to be uploaded. I did that and it said file uploaded. Now that is where I get lost. What do I do next to get this screen shot to show up here?

    It should do that automatically. Just close the upload-window and finish what you want to write. Click on "Submit reply" and it should be there. No need to confirm the uploading or anything like that.

    I tried that

    but did not see the file. I am so confused now because I know what I need to do and it is not happening. I will try one last time. I will go to a new post, click on the paperclip and upload the file again when it is uploaded, I will close the window - I will type my msg and hit submit. If it's there good, if its not so be it. I am tired.

    OK - now

    that you see the screen shot, my problem is that when I hit the "edit" button, it takes me to the wordings you see but you don't see the bottom of that page like you see on the screen shot. It takes me to the bottom of the last line. Therefore, I cannot save it because I cannot see the save button. How do I make that page smaller so that I can view the button?

    SOLVED the problem

    I did a lot of soul searching and found that if I resized my monitor screen display I could accomplish what I wanted. AND it worked.
