    vcds screen size

    Hi, stupidly I changed the size of the vcds screen and now the whole screen on the laptop shows about a third of the vcds window. I can't scroll down to get to where the settings option is.
    Is there anyway round this or shall I remove and reinstall?

    Start VCDS. Click on the VCDS "skateboard" icon in the top left corner. From the menu that appears, select "Delete config file and close".

    Rest-start VCDS. Make smaller, incremental changes next time.

    On both of mine 12.12.2 and 14.7.1 Beta I seen no skateboard icon in the top left corner. I change my screen size in User Interface and Identification tab. You obviously have to restart before the changes show.

    It's the application icon, circled here:

    Which you can't do if you accidentally make it ginormous like I've done before
    The only way to correct this is to delete the config file.
