Remember how desktop looked like in XP with 800x600 resolution? Everything was big - fonts, icons, browser, documents... Now have Win7 with 1920x1080 resolution. It used to be fine, then another user


Everywhere? If you change DPI, you change the appearance of everything everywhere. (The Home edition of Windows 7 does not contain "Personalize.") Only a change in DPI will affect the appearance of everything.

But without changing DPI, you can do the following.
Right click on a blank area on the desktop and choose screen resolution. Click Make text and other items larger or smaller. You have some choices in the radio buttons or you can try a custom setting. These won't affect images but will affect icon and text appearance size.

Here are a few other things you can tinker with to get a view you like.

1) In the procedure you have described, when you get to ITEM,, choose more of the selection from the drop down list, then reboot.
OR, 2) Click on an open area in a web page. Hold the Control button down, roll the scroll wheel atop your mouse. 3) in the RUN box of Windows 7, type cttune and hit enter. Walk through this ClearTypeTuner procedure and you can at least have an easy go at adjusting readability to your liking. If you change your mind, you can always change the settings back. It does allow you to see how the font would look. --I have not mentioned the Magnifier option...

In brief, your monitor probably came with its best resolution set up. But you can use the "tricks" above to alter the appearance of sizes. You just may find readability diminishes.

Yesterday, when I powered up my laptop, everything was all of a sudden enlarged ( the desktp, icons, internet, text, e-mails, EVERYTHING). I know this is probably supposed to be some kind of useful tool...


Hi,

Your enlarged desktop could be caused by several different things, so I will address each one in the order of likelihood of each one:

1. You may have accidentally changed your Display Settings.

Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. Scroll down and click on Display Settings. Ensure that your Monitor Resolution is set for the maximum. If not, use your mouse to move the slider bar all the way to the right.

2. You may have accidentally changed the size of text and icons.

Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About half way down the screen, select Make the computer easier to see. Click on Change the size of text and icons about half way down the screen. If it is not selected, chose the default scale.

3. You may have accidentally turned on the Magnifier.

Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About half way down the screen, select Make the computer easier to see. About half way down the screen, uncheck the Turn on Magnifier.

To turn off the On-Screen Keyboard on start-up,
right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About half way down, select Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard. Unselect Use On-Screen Keyboard.

To turn off the Narrator on start-up, right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About a third of the way down, select Use the computer without a display. Unselect Turn on Narrator.

I hope this helps. If so, please remember to rate my post.

Thanks!
