Hi dldaniels first thing is you need to go to display settings click on the advance button and make sure the DPI is set to 96 this is default setting.
Now if the DPI is 96 you may have acidentaly changed the accessiblity setting,
click on the start button and go to accessories then choose accessiblity and then click on the wizard..from here you can change it back.
Now the other thing you can check once you have done that is to check that your using clear type fonts, on the display properties of the desktop by right click on blank space and going to properties, then choose the appearance tab click on effects...then make sure it using clear type.

hope that helps

My display resolutin is too small, thatswy my screen shows very small as compared to monitor size....!! what can i do? the H size and V size is correct..!!


You probably know about adjusting the monitor display size by right clicking on a blank area of the desktop, choosing properties, settings and moving the slider towards the left. 800x600 will make everything very large. (XP instructions)

You can also get there via the control panel, display, settings.

While on that page, you can click appearance and change icon size.

I logged on the other day and every thing on my screen seems magnified everthing looks much bigger than it usually is how do i get it back to normal


Try to check the display properties.
On the desktop right click and select properties (do not point the mouse at the icon)
On the settings tab adjust your resolution to the highest level. Change the color quality to highest 32 bit. Click apply and press OK
That should do it.

However there are instances that display settings are OK, but when you open any applications the page is very large...
Do this to adjust the page: Press and hold "Control" key. While holding the control key press the "+" sign to adjust the page to a larger size; press "-" sign to reduce the page.

Hope this help you...
Much appreciated if you rate this help.. thanks

Dell touchpad icon missing


Hello,
'Inactive icons' in the System Tray next to the time display do not display using the defaults in XP. To change this, right click over the Taskbar and choose Properties. Once you are in the Primary property page unselect "hide inactive icons." This may require you to log off or even reboot to affect this change.

Still, to get to the property pages for your Touch pad you want to enter Control Panel and then Mouse. Inside the Mouse property pages for control panel you'll see a property tab for the glide pad. Make your desired setting and then reboot. As you may already know, the scrolling function of the glide pad is accessed by drawing a finger down the far right hand side of the glide pad surface.

Hope this has helped and fixed ya.
