You should be able to place your mouse in a blank area of your desktop then right click. Then click on properties. Then click on the settings tab. Under this tab there should be a place to change your screen resolution. Change it to 1024 x 768 if it is not already there. If it is there then go to a higher number with the slider.

I hope this helps. If not, please let me know.

Font sizing


Where do you want to change the font size on the overall computer or in a word document?

In a word document you will see a number at the top of the window that represents the font size that you can change. If you have problems within word there is a Help option where you can simply type: Font Size and it will bring up instructions to change.

To change font size on everything in the computer:
Find an open space on the windows desktop and Right Click then select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens click the Appearance Tab then look down towards the bottom left you will see where you can change the font size from Normal to Large or Extra Large. Change the size then Click Apply then click OK.

You can also get the Display Properties by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Once the display opens click the Appearance tab to change the font size.

Check the paper size at the printer properties on control panel.
You may be trying to print an A4 document to a printer configured to print on Letter size paper.
The document paper size should match the printer's paper size deffinition.

How do I increase the text size on incoming e-mail or stuff I want to print. larry


The easiest way to increase the text size on screen of your e-mails and browser contents is to simply hold the "Ctrl" key and scroll up with your mouse to zoom in and scroll down with your mouse to zoom out. If you don't have a scrolling mouse, hold the "Ctrl" key while pressing the "+" and "-" sign to adjust the text size.

If you want to increase the size of the font on documents you are printing from web-sites, you have to look for the "Printer Friendly" button, or the "Print" button on the actual web-page. The developers of the article you are seeking to print have to manually do this themselves.

If it's in a text document or something similar, you can highlight all of the text at once by pressing "Ctrl+A" (The control key and the A button, not the plus button) and increasing the font size in the program you are using.

Document sometimes doesn't print


If the documents are large or have a lot of pictures and pages, printing can take a while. However, if the same thing occurs with a one page letter, try re-loading the printer driver(s) and/or check the printer settings, especially those that have to do with spooling. It's usually best to choose the setting that allows the document to spool so it prints faster.

Just in case you don't have the manul, here is a link to the book in PDF format:

We have a canon MP610 printer scanner combo, I work in a dentist office and am trying to scan a x-ray. When I do it is'nt picking up the detail very well at all. I think I need to adjust the settings but I...


the only way to get a little more detail out of this printer with x-rays is to INCREASE the DPI resolution. there are no other adjustments that are abailable.
The Scan Settings dialog box opens when you click Specify... on the Scan/Import Documents or images screen.
The Scan Settings dialog box allows you to specify advanced settings for scanning.

Document Type
Select the type of document to be scanned. To scan photographs, select either Color Photo or Black and White Photo. To scan text documents, select either Color Document, Black and White Document, or Text(OCR). To scan magazines, select Magazine(Color).
Document Size
Select the size of document to be scanned.
Auto Detect: Detects document size automatically.
Auto Detect(Multiple Documents): Select this when scanning multiple documents at one time.
Select Stitch-assist to scan the left and right halves of a document separately and combine them back into one image.
Reference See the section below for details.
Scanning images Larger than the Platen (Stitch Assist)
When you select Custom, a dialog box in which you can specify the document size opens. Select a Unit, then enter the Width and Height and click OK.

Important When you select Auto Detect the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, specify the document size, such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned, and align a corner of the document with the corner at the arrow of the platen.
When you select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) allow 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen and the document.
If not, some images may not be scanned at the correct positions and sizes.
You cannot select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) or Auto Detect when Document Type is Text(OCR).
Scanning Resolution<<<<-------------------------------------------------------------<<<<<<<<<<
Select the resolution at which to scan documents. The following scanning resolution can be specified:
Text(OCR): 300dpi, 400dpi
Others: 75dpi, 100dpi, 150dpi, 200dpi, 300dpi, 400dpi, 600dpi
The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail. At high resolution, scanning takes longer and file size becomes larger than usual. See the section below for details on resolution.
this should answer your question , feel free to post here agian if you need more help.
Regards, and thank you for using fixya.
