Like VPN but....
« on: August 10, 2020, 03:54:22 PM »
2 things happening with this app. First, the window is too big and the menu area and the X (shut down) are too high so can't access. Second, Originally, the menu set to come on when pc starts. It does not! I start it every day. Can you nice people address my woes??? Thanks so much.

Here is the s.s. showing the large window - the top of which is where the settings are. So am unable to show you that part until I can make the window smaller. This is where we need to start. ONce that is solved I can show you the menu area. Thanks.

What's your screen resolution..?
Looks like you set a zoom factor, check your graphic settings and reset it to 100%.

Before the update I could keep my display scaled up - no problem. Also, started up every day without intervention from me. As in private network. I guess I will deal with that now. Thanks.

Hi, N0rt05.

May I ask how you fixed it? I'm having the same issue for a while, now.
