Flash window too big for 1024x600 netbook screen

LunkerLunker Registered User regular
I've run into this problem twice, once while playing Machinarium and again just now while trying to install software that foolishly put its initial splash screen into a Flash window: I can't see the bottom of the Flash window on my 1024x600 netbook screen because it's too tall, and I can't nudge the Flash player up like I can with a regular window. Is there any way to reduce the Flash window size or otherwise reach that bottom content?

    That's certainly odd, I don't really know how to help you.

    With flash games I just zoom out or go fullscreen, though.

    Can't you just select the window and then with a combination of tab or enter try to go to the next step?

    If yours has them, use your netbooks key combos to turn the screen 90 degrees, and some browsers seem to play better with scrolling flash than others.

    My EEE can use a compressed 1024x768 mode. I had to do something to get it to work, don't remember exactly what, but it wasn't complicated. It looks like shit but it works.

    Confined to a tiny spit of sand, unable to escape,
    But tonight, it's heavy stuff.

    most browsers will resize flash content when you resize the page. Try CTRL +/- or CTRL mousewheel.
