A smaller monitor? Sorta like installing a de-boosting chip? ;-)

For viewing the FA on my Mac Powerbook (1024x768 max res) I use (in
addition to "Virtual PC", of course) a utility software called
"Virtual Desktop". That permits me to define an unlimited desktop
size and to drag the FA program window around on it (using the mouse
while holding the command key). It's a little clunky, but effectively
equivalent to horizontal and vertical scrolling. There must be
similar software available for Windows.
