    Unhappy s60 emulator is too big for netbook screen resolution

    is it any way to replace/adjust size of emulator, so I can use my netbook to develop s60 applications?
    When I launch emulator for debuging, I cannot even see the emulator keyboard. It does not fit to 1024x600 pixels screen.

    I am not aware of any good solutions, but here are some thoughts:
    - if you see the two softkeys, that is more or less enough, for typing, navigation, etc., you can use the keyboard of your PC (in fact the softkeys can be also used that way, they are Alt+1/2 - or Ctrl?), the application button is Home.
    - you can try switching the orientation of the emulator (the [-] button, usually in the top-left corner), it may make it a bit less tall
    - running the emulator in a Virtual PC (or anything similar) is also possible, then you can set a larger resolution, and scroll the screen in a window. Though I would not do that on a netbook.

    Re: s60 emulator is too big for netbook screen resolution

    Hi,
    I use it on my MSI Wind all the time - there are two ways:
    a) switch it to landscape mode
    b) Set the screen resolution to XGA using the Intel drivers. You then get a "virtual screen", on which you can zoom around.
    The lines above are the best I have to offer.If anyone of you is of more advanced knowledge, I ask for your patience and understanding! - unknown arab poet
