Re: resolution smaller than application

I run the file startxwin.bat. The coomand I run is the following:

run XWin :0  -screen 0 1024x768@1  -scrollbars -query %REMOTE_HOST% 
-nodecoration -lesspointer -clipboard

My current WindowsXp screen resolution is 1024x768 .

Wrong list, redirecting...  Please remove <cygwin at cygwin dot com> from

How are you invoking XWin?  Do you use the script?  If so,
XWin is invoked in multi-window mode, which uses the Windows screen as the
X screen.  Try invoking XWin directly, and giving it the -screen parameter
(see the man page for instructions on specifying the screen size), and
-scrollbars to allow resizing/scrolling.
