Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Screen transition while scrolling

With XP When I scroll a page the screen changes like a small wave moving vertically. This is very disconcerting. I have tried all the settings I can think of. The only way I can chage it is to set the hardware acceleration to full slow, then if I play videos etc. the image is jerky.

What am I missing?

Seems like a problem with the video card driver. Can you check if Windows is using "Standard VGA Driver" video? (Right click the My Computer Icon, select Properties - Hardware - Device Manager - 2x Click Display Adapter.) If you can identify the video card/chip of your computer (Example Nvidia or ATI), you may need to get the appropriate drivers to optimize your display.

How to adjust the screen


Choose a resolution not greater than the native size of your screen :
for example, if your screen is an 1388 x 760, don't use 1600 x 800 !
How do you do that ?
right click on an empty space of the desktop, select properties, parameters tab, and move the slider to the native resolution of your screen.

Screen keeps scrolling


usually screens will scroll like that if you have accidentally pushed down on the middle mouse button - you will see a circle with a double ended arrow in it. Moving the mouse in any direction will make the page scroll up or down indefinitely until you deactivate the scroll or move your mouse to the centre of the screen where page stops scrolling but is still active.

My facebook page is too small; how do I get it full page size?


Not sure, if your browser is just not fullscreen, in that case press alt+ENTER .
If webpage is to small, then press left ctrl and scroll up with mouse wheel, it should make page bigger.

How do you make the page scroll smoothly in windows xp i have tried checking the smooth scrolling box in tools but nothing happens.The wave scrolls in waves.


Hello,
I think you issue is the stuttering effect of scrolling.
Actually in windows, the way of behaving of the mouse scroll wheel is likely controlled by the device driver... So checking the smooth scrooling option may not work. So you can find updated drivers for your mouse which can resolve your issue.
Also, you can do one thing... Go to the menu that controls the options for your mouse.... the menu where you change the mouse pointer's speed. There, go to the " Wheel" menu and lessen the no. of lines to be scrolled per scrolling of the wheel. I hope I am successful in resolving your issue.
Thank you...

How do I adjust web page to fit display screen


There is the Zoom option in the View menu if you are using IE. You can set it to 100%. With IE8 you can use F11 to set it to display on full screen. Unless you need to set the screen resolution, width and height for your monitor, those should work for you. Pressing Ctrl key and scrolling your mouse will adjust the zoom of web page too, quicker way.
