Question Unanswered: New ACER Mini Netbook - Can't see the whole WW screen

I hope someone here can help me. I am certainly not a technical giant, lol. I just bot a new ACER Aspire One Netbook and I tried to log my kid into WW. The problem is the screen is so small we cannot see the whole screen. Can't see the dock, for instance. There is no scroll bar on the right so that we might scroll down.

I looked under Screen Resolution and it is maxxed out at 1024 by 600. Does this mean no WW on the new ACER? boo hoo

You have to change the screen resolution. do have a regular computer to? If so, check what the screen resolution it is there, and change the screen resolution on your acer to what it is on your regular computer for WW.


Hope I Helped!

My mother in law just just a little pink dell laptop like yours and my husband really wanted me to want one too. (I don't know why) Anyway, I am really addicted to webkinz and I was doubtful that I would like it because everything would be so tiny. I tried out hers and the exact same thing happened.

I couldn't figure out how to see the whole screen either. I told my DH right then and there that I did not want one of those little computers. There may be some way to fix it. There are no scroll ability on WW that I have seen. I was able to shrink the log in page to 50% but it was so little it would be hard to see anything, but then even when I shrank the log in page it went back to the page not fitting the screen after you got in WW.

The are a lot of people on here that are technically savy, I hope that someone can help you. Good luck!

Oh dear, that does sound frustrating! I'm sorry you're having that issue with your new laptop. Do you have another computer monitor to which you can hook up your laptop, then extend the laptop screen to that monitor (and drag the webkinz window into it) or mirror the laptop screen on that monitor?

If so, all you would need would be a cable (you should have this with your computer or monitor) that plugs into the back of your laptop and connects to the computer plug of the external monitor. Then you would go to the display settings and choose to switch your monitor, extend it out, or display the same thing on each monitor.

I know this isn't an ideal suggestion, but maybe it would help if you really want to use that computer to play webkinz or to view other sites that open very large pop-up windows.

Hi I don't think you can get the whole lot on a screen with that resolution but you can maximize the viewable area you have by pressing F11 to switch your web browser into full screen mode (this works best with firefox but will still work with Internet Explorer) this will get rid of most of the surrounding parts of the screen like navigational and address bars and when your done just press F11 again to exit full screen.

I hope this helps.

We have the same problem with hubby's computer (and worse yet, the iPhone doesn't support Flash!). He bought the Acer as well, little dinky thing that fits into his motorcycle bag but the screen size is fixed. Why wouldn't Ganz let us scroll! It's frustrating. My husband is computer savy but doesn't think highly of Webkinz so if there is a solution, he won't tell me.
