I have the 30" Cinema Display for a few years now and working without problem till I must of accidentally hit a wrong setting yesterday. The problem is this, finder window now displays larger than the monitor size and I do not see the entire finder. For instance, I do not see the menu bar at top of screen till I move my mouse up and then the screen moves to now reveal the top menu bar, now I do not see the dock till I move my mouse down and the screen moves to reveal the dock. Also, I do not see the far right of the finder window or my system hard drive till I move my mouse over to the far right, then the screen moves to display my hard drives, etc.

I've tried reseting monitor to my usual settings;

Cinema HD:
Resolution: 2560 x 1600
Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
Main Display: Yes
Mirror: Off
Online: Yes
Rotation: Supported

I've tried restarting the computer, selecting "Monitor Detect", changing the Monitor Resolution without any luck of correcting the problem.

It's almost like their is an "Overscan" setting I'm missing. How do I make my entire finder window fit my main monitor?

This sounds like one of the Accessibility features. Hold down the control key and use the mouse wheel to scroll the size back to normal.

Thanks for your replies, Yes, it was a newer feature I don't use. Control and Mouse to zoom the display, now I know a new feature.

[Michael Harrington] "it was a newer feature I don't use"

NOT a new feature at all, its been in OS X for as long as I can remember. Its just not widely known.
