Question Common Desktop Environment Question


I'm experiencing a strange problem with CDE on a Solaris workstation. The Desktop is bigger than the screen. In otherwords, when I open an xterm half of the xterm window appears half off the screen. When I move the mouse up to the top of the new xterm the control panel scrolls off the bottom of the screen.

Is there a setting to change the size of the desktop in CDE? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
