What resolution are you working at? The default sizes for MC windows should be fine on anything bigger than 800x600.

In the "locale" sub-directory under the MUSHclient install directory is a file called "en_small.dll". With MUSHclient closed, rename "en.dll" to something else (eg. "en.dll.original"). Then rename "en_small.dll" to "en.dll".

Then restart the program and you should see a somewhat more compact user interface.

I followed what you say. Now it looks good, can view every button. The properties window is a square now, may I suggest you change the windows to rectangle? I think many of us use the wide screen。 thanks!

Can you take a screen shot of the original problem? I don't know why it doesn't fit if you have a wide screen.

I don't know how paste pic at here, use two links:
1. this is the original en.dll, you can see that the properties windows is big than the screen,so that the buttons at the bottom can't be click, If you want to click the buttons, must drug the status bar to the side.

2.this is the small en.dll, you can see that the all the button can be click, but the content just display a litter,must scroll the bar to the right can view more content.

I see from that, that you have a really wide, but not particularly deep screen.

This program was written, like, 20 years ago. It didn't have resizable dialog boxes in those days.

That's odd, MC has been running for years on *x768 resolutions without anyone reporting that problem. I ran a 1024x768 max res monitor for quite a few years and never had that problem, though I was running 98SE and XP at the time.

My screen resolution is just 1366X768, I think plenty of laptop has this resolution.
