Most projectors have a set resolution. If everything gets really big then the projector has a very low resolution. There is nothing that can be done to make it got to a better resolution other than right clicking (windows xp +) the desktop. Goto properties. Then click the settings tab. set the resolution to whatever your projector can support.

If windows gets stuck at a particular resolution (when you plug in another monitor and it is set like it is the projector or vise versa) You should install the monitors drivers and the projectors drivers. These should be avalible on the manufactures site(s). This will cause windows to use the profile of that device instead of the generic "pnp montior" driver. That way it will always know what resolution to set the device to when it is plugged in.

Hope this helps
If you want to know where to get the drivers just google the manufactures name +drivers. Good luck

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.

Normal size for dpi


DPI, or "font size" is variable, depending on your monitor's native resolution, The resolution you have selected for it in Windows (Desktop-->Properties[right-click]-->Display Properties-->Settings), and what program you are currently using (browsers can be "zoomed").

I would try adjusting your monitor resokution first, before changing display font size. Try this page for some help with XP: http://www.andybrain.com/qna/2008/02/09/how-to-change-the-font-size-in-windows-xp/

This page for help in Win7: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/443-dpi-display-size-settings-change.html

There really is no such thing as "normal" DPI font size. Most people with decent eyes would probably use 96 as a standard.

How do I change the print size in everything that appears ont the computer


That will depend on what operating system you are using. Typically, you have to change the default font size in each application, including the file viewer ("Finder" in Mac OS, "My Computer" in Windows). For example, in a Mac OS X Finder window, you would click the arrow next to the gear icon and select "Show View Options" from the bottom of the pop-up menu. This will give you a font size selector along with other options. Another example more typical of individual applications is the Firefox Preferences menu ("Tools" in Windows). Here you would click the Content tab to bring up the default font selection.
Sometimes changing screen resolution affects the apparent font size - going to a lower resolution makes the fonts look larger. (If a character occupied a 20x40 space at 1280 x 960 resolution, that same space at 640 x 480 will look twice as large.) This will not hold for all applications; many automatically rescale fonts when the resolution is changed.
You can also use Universal Access to zoom in on the screen with

I want to change the image size and font size on my screen. When I push the menu button, I can't click on to any of the choices. Bill Kelly


Hi,
You can not change the font and resolution through the monitor. For that Please Right click on desktop, Go to properties and click on. A separate window appears called Display Properties. There you can see the Themes, Desktop, Screen Saver, Appearance and Settings. To change the Desktop background click on Desktop and change the background. To change the font, click on Appearance and change some settings there. To change the image or to broaden the images click on Settings and change screen resolution. Thats it. After changing any of the settings you need to you need to click Apply which is present in the bottom right corner of the display settings. Then click ok.

Thank you.....

The font size on my HP Pavillion N5445 is too large. When checking the text size, it is already on smallest and is still too large.


Are all fonts too large or just icon fonts?

You could reset the screen to a higher resolution. Please note that everything will appear smaller including webpages and desktop icons.
Click Start\Settings\Control Panel
Then Click Display
When the box opens click Settings
When the new window opens you will see an adjustment called "Screen resolution" and a slider marked 'more' at one end and 'less' at the other.
Most modern monitors are set to 1024 by 768 pixels or above. Try moving your slider to a higher setting then click Apply\Ok
