    Yes sorry I know this is probably better off in the Tech forum but I would like a quick response if possible.
    Whilst sailing around the Tokuno Islands this morning and switching from the game to the Tokuno Map on Stratics I think I must have hit something, as my gameplay window now fills my entire screen on my laptop.
    I can't see my toolbar at the bottom of the screen and my chars look a bit fat and stretched.
    I restarted the computer but it is still the same and only seems to be affecting UO.
    What have I done and how can I get it back to the way it was?

    Do you mean you 'full screened' it by hitting some keys, is it ALT + Enter, something like that?

    yes, ALT + ENTER will cause your screen to do this.

    Yes that was it thanks. I was flipping between the gameplay screen and the map of Tokuno and all of a sudden I saw a Kraken was attacking me and I started randomly mashing all my keys in a panic and shouting " THE KRAKEN IS EATING MY FACE!". Then the game went to full-screen and crashed.
    Now this thread can slowly float down to the bottom of the page, like the broken body of the pwnd kraken slowly falling into the sunless world below the Tokuno Islands. It didn't kill me when the game crashed, no, not at all , not me.

    Aww :( but glad your game is fixed! I kinda like that whole full screen thing, but it's a bugger of a job getting all your stuff in place.
