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.

Text too small


This can be changed from display settings if you are talking about the text on the desktop ..Just click right on the desktop ..choose properties and select the last in the right ...settings ..here you can select a smaller resolution ..(best for 17 inc is 10024 /768 )and click apply and OK ..
if you do not want to change the resolution but need larger icons and text ..just select on the same window advanced..and you will have the possibility to increase the icon and text size with the percent you want ...After that click apply and OK to exit ..It may ask to restart for to apply the changes..
if you are talking about the writing in the browser..you can zoom it by changing resolution ..or by pressing down the ctrl button and scroll up or down ..
Also all text size can be selected manually for each location if you click right on desktop and in the window select appearance (second in the right 0 and advanced..This advanced feature will allow you to select the size color and font size for each item ...one by one ..icons...space between them ..for title and menu bars..etc.
But , I suggest not to mess with that ..cause you may not be able to manage it well ..just engage a smaller resolution and will solve the issue for the writing .

Desktop icons. i installed win7 transformation pack and now it has large desktop icons..how to turn it into classic icons?


  1. right mouse click on the desktop
  2. select properties
  3. click the settings tab
  4. after slide the resolution to 1024 x 768.
  5. If this is too small, then change it until you are satisfied with the screen resolution.

click advanced. Under general, you'll see DPI settings if they have changed, set them back to 96. If thats not the problem, go to appearance, advanced, then icons. Set the icon size to 32, and the font to 8. If not, increase the resolution by going to settings and moving the slider.

Please don't forget to rate... :-)

My words in my compt. are so small i cant even read my websites well.my kids played wiyh it and they shranked all the words.can u help?


Assuming you have a MS Windows OS. There are a couple of ways to remedy this situation. Option one is to change the screen resolution by right clicking on the desktop screen and selecting Properties and then Settings. Change the Screen Resolution to something lower than the current setting. This will cause everything to enlarge on the screen. Option 2 is to just change the font size as the standard. Right click on the desktop screen and select Properties. Select Appearance and change the Font Size to Large Fonts or Extra Large Fonts. If you are trying to change the font in Internet Explorer then choose View/Text Size, select Larger or Largest. That will change only the fonts inside Internet Explorer.

Just set up monitor after we moved. The fonts on microsoft features are now small. Attempt to change font size (on control panel) are not successful. example of "features" = task bar words very small,...


anywhere on the desktop(not over an icon or folder) right click on the mouse and go to properties. A window called display properties will come up. On th tabs at the top click on settings.
There will be a slider bar called screen resolution, move the slider down and the windows icons and folders and fonts will get larger adjust this and keep clicking apply until it was the same size previously
