Missing pixels at top and bottom of desktop?

    I have just purchased a Sony Vaio laptop with Vista Home Premium installed,
    to replace my ageing Mac G4 PowerBook. I have noticed that the button icons
    at the top righthand corner of the
    expanded Internet Explorer window under Vista are missing the top line or
    two of pixels, so the buttons are incomplete. The same is true of the Start
    button, which has a few lines of pixels missing from the bottom of it. This
    is true on every laptop that I have seen running Vista.

    This is not a significant issue, merely one of aesthetics. As someone who
    has recently move to Vista from Mac OS X, I feel it spoils the polished look
    of the new OS interface a little in relation to that of the Mac, that's all.

    You are probably just confusing the frame for missing pixels.

    Thanks for the reply, John.

    As I say, it's of minor significance. However, what I'm referring to is the
    disappearance of the very narrow white border to the top of the Maximize,
    Minimize and Close icons in IE. This is evident around all the other windows,
    such as a Maximized Word window, but it disappears into the black 'frame'
    which surrounds the desktop on the lcd in IE. I thought it might be an
    anomaly on my computer, but I looked in a computer store today, and other
    laptops had the same 'characteristic'.

    Sounds to me like you need to adjust your display settings for the
    laptop (not the display settings within Vista)

    Keith I believe you have posted this to several newsgroups by multiposting
    (sending the same message separately to the different groups). I replied in
    a different newsgroup. Next time please don't multipost. Choose one
    newsgroup that is most applicable. If you must post to different groups, do
    so by crossposting, sending one message at the same time to all newsgroups.

    Apologies. I misunderstood what Suggestions for Microsoft meant; I thought in
    the case of the one other posting I made that it merely got sent to MSoft
    rather than be posted on the newsgroup.
