Compaq desk top screen to large

Right click your desktop and click resolution. Adjust it so that it is set to the maximum possible (native) and click apply. If you're talking about metro, you should be able to scroll scroll to reach the other icons. You can also adjust icon screen size if you go to the desktop, hold the control key and scroll using a wheel, or right click and change icon size.

I use AOL on my Mac. Can not change the font size on outgoing mail. How do I fix this?

LOL, no wonder. Are they still around? They've been bought and sold so much that I thought they were completely stripped.

Get into your AOL email and look for a help option somewhere while in the email client.

Monitor is showing large icons, large pictures and blurry images.

Go to Start >control Panel> display.
On the Settings tab,slide the resolutin slider to a higher number. Hit apply and it will show ou the difference and give you the option to accept or reject the changes.

You can change the size of the icons by going to Start >Control Panel > Display >Appearance. Then click on the advance button. There you will see a box to change the size of the icons.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

How do I make my icons smaller on my desktop?

First you just right click with your mouse on an open area of your desktop, not on an icon. Then you select from the menu that pops up "properties".

After that a window will pop up with some tabs across the top and you need to click on "appearance".

you can change the font size of your desktop there and if you click on the tab in the lower right hand corner you can select "advanced"

That is where you can change the size of your icons.

In the drop down menu that is labeled "item" you need to select the "icon" choice. After that you choose the size you want right next to it in the box marked "size"

The number in that box is in pixels and it will display the current size. Just change it to what ever you want it to be and click "ok" and if it is not good for you, then you do it all over again and choose a different size.
Thats all there is to it.

let me know if you need any more help and if you found this helped you a good rating would be appreciated. Most people I have helped don't ever give me a rating :(
