Dear all,

I'm sure this is no secret and those who have tried that, they know what 
I'll explain here :)

Whether you know this or not, may I share it with you, yet again?
I'm doing this in real life:

My options are:
Lubuntu, Xubuntu and Ubuntu GNOME.

I use Lubuntu only:
1- If the user has weak machine
2- If the user has notebook with 11'' inch display and ATOM CPU

With case #1, I have no issues (generally).

However, with #2 I'm facing a very painful issue which I may be able to 
handle but definitely, a newcomer to GNU/Linux (preciously Lubuntu) will 
find it very frustrating and will never like it.

The issue is:
A Large window with some buttons at the bottom of the window is a real 
pain because you can't move your mouse and click anything. What make 
things more painful, you can't adjust the size of these large windows.

Sorry if I failed to explain that but I do hope I did explain it clearly ...

So, how to solve this?

I have tried to change the resolution but that was useless.


Thank you!

Again, this painful issue with small screen/monitor for notebooks (11''
