    Hi all, I have just restarted my Mac G5 to find that the photo I set as my desktop moves about the screen when I move the mouse and that the text is all slightly "misprinted" like an old typewriter .

    Once a window is open it stays stationary to the desktop photo unless I move it by the menu bar. It is like the screen photo is too big for the screen.

    Any help would be great fully received in curing this as it is now making me feel quite nauseous .

    Thanks

    Rory

    Mac g5, OSX 10.4.11

    Sounds like you have Zoom on. Press option+apple+8, see if that fixes it.

    No problem.

    Another one that seems to freak people out is ctrl+option+apple+8. Try it! :cool:
