Supermicro IPMI / KVM / BMC Remote Console Screen Resizing Issue - Window Cut Off Solution

It could just be my specific Java but other KVM/IP works ok on my machine but with Supermicro's IPMI for some reason the console window doesn't resize and even putting it in full screen leaves the window cut off as shown below:

As you can see above the screen is cut off you can't see the "I agree" on the right side.

The window resize option is on and it is clearly not working properly.  Even choosing full screen doesn't change anything.

Solution - Here's how you can fix it with the Macro option:

  1. Macro Menu/Settings and click the option for "Hold Left Alt Key"
  2. Then click and hold and the mouse pointer becomes a hand.
  3. You can then drag to the right to expose what is cut off or whereever else you need to see.
  4. After you've moved the screen to where you need and want to click something make sure you disable the "Hold Left Alt Key" in macro or you won't be able to click or interact with anything.

See the example below after using the process above:
