Screen Size in Windows XP
Running Shop-pro in Full screen mode under Windows may still be possible
technically, but it's no longer recommended as it can cause incompatibility
problems for Shop-Pro and/or Windows.
In most cases most full-screen fans have found a font that is very
readable for running Shopkeeper in a window.
To run in a Window you often have to reselect the font size. Start the
Shop-Pro and put it into a 'Window' so you can see part of the
Windows Desktop in the background - you may need to press Alt-Enter to
switch to a window mode.
Make sure the window is maximized. i.e. at the top right between the
minimize and the close buttons the middle button should appear like
a double-box. If it appears as a single box -click that to switch to
Right-click the title bar at the top of the window then
choose Properties, then pick the Font tab and select Lucida Console and
then select a size, such as 18, 20, 24, then click OK and then select
Save for future and click OK.
Note that you can type in font sizes not listed. eg. if 21 is not listed
but you think it would be a good size, just type in 21.
21 is a good size for monitors with a resolution of 1024 x 768
25 or 16 are good sizes for monitors with a resolution of 1280 x 1024
Note that the best size will depend on your monitor resolution. Also note
that in a Window you can normally make Shop-Pro fit the full width of the
screen and up to 70% of the height (not 100%)
