My on screen display has gone small
What do you mean has gone small? You mean your icons are smaller?
Try changing your screen resolution. Right Click on an open space on the
desktop and select Properties. When the Display Properties window
opens select the Appearance tab. Look down at the bottom and you can
make sure your Font Size is Normal, if not change it to Normal. Click
the Settings tab and change your screen resolution. The higher the
resolution, the smaller the icons. Size 1024x768 is what most people
You can also get to the display properties to perform the steps above by
clicking Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel. Look for
Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open it and the display
properties window will open.
If you are using Windows 7 you can also just click Start and in the
search box type Screen Resolution. Look up at the top for the search
results and click on Screen Resolution.
If you can't get it back to the way it was you can try doing a System
Restore. System Restore allows you to select a Restore Point (date and
time) before you started having problems. So if you display went small
yesterday, then select a restore point before yesterday.
System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures,
videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore
point you selected). To start System Restore click
Start/Program/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore then select a data
and time before you started having the issue.
If you are using Windows 7 you can just click Start then in the search
box type System Restore and look up at the returned search results and
select System Restore.
System Recovery on the other hand deletes everything and sets your system back to when your first purchased it.
