I am trying to add a printer
Epson NX430
I found the driver on the Epson website
But when I try to add the printer, the page is too long and I cannot see the bottom
I cannot click on "next" or whatever makes me go to the next step
Thanks for any help
Susan

I get this kind of thing quite often working on a 1024x600 netbook.

Pretty much the only way around it is to select an option as far down as you can, then start hitting the tab key and count how many times you hit it before the TOP item on the screen is selected.

then select the option you selected  before and hit the tab key 1 less than you did before .. the "OK" or "Next" button tend to be the last selectable option in a dialog box ;)

On my netbook I hold in the alt button,  then click and drag the window upwards till the buttons on the bottom are visible.

It is irritating, but most things are not designed with network users in mind.
