Sorry? What are you talking about?

Resizing a work area?

Do you mean getting a bigger monitor? Then run to an electronics store.

Do you mean adjusting the screen resolution? In vista rightclick the desktop and select graphics properties. In XP right click the desktop, selct properties, and then click the settings tab.

Do you mean actually remodeling your work area? Great! I'll grab my hammer and passport now! biggrin

I apologize for not understanding exactly what you meant. Just give me some more destails and I'll help you out.

My workspace is not resizable on the desktop and Vista covers the bottom scroll bar so I can not use it. No matter if I change my vista resolutions, it's the same. If I go in to preferences on CL, it doesn't change either...can't use this software withot being able to access the scroll bar on the workspace.

Okay.

Right click the vista task bar on the bottom of the screen.

Select properties
And uncheck the box 'keep taskbar on top of other windows'

That should do it!

Ex.

Sorry, I have already done this and the work area still overflows it's vista window regardless of task bar. I really need to adjust the work area screen I am thinking it's not possible to do so.

In Edit->Preferences you can adjust the size of the window.

What resolution are you running your Vista desktop at?

I have played around with the preferences with not much success. I would like to run at 1280 X 960
