The higher the resolution the smaller the icons. 800x600 will show large icons with little screen space. 1024x768 will show smaller icons with more screen space :)

What do you mean when you say "low"?

Increasing the resolution will usually make your screen smaller. Try 1024X768.

You also have manual adjustments on the monitor you can use to decrease the size, vertically and horizontally. Sometimes the menus are kind of tricky though. If you have the manual check it out. If not, comment back with the monitor make and model and I'll try to help you navigate.

The picture is too big for the screen. The four buttons will only adjust colour and contrast - not size


To adjust the screen size (resolution) you have to right click on an empty place on Desktop, select Properties and then Settings. Under screen resolution change it to more, until it shows under it 1024x768, or even bigger if you want and it is possible.

Yes right click on the desktop and click properties, when the window comes up, go to settings, and set to say 800x600, and click OK, this may sort you out.
Also ensure you have the graphics manager installed too.

Image set up of screen is only half of the monitor


If you v-size is already at 100% then the issue is with the picture being sent to the monitor. Based upon what kind of input you have for the monitor there is a number of different ways to fix this. I will assume you are using the monitor with a desktop computer. If this is for XP, then there is a simple fix as follows, adjusting your display properties:
Right-click on your desktop background and then click on "Properties" this will open up a new window. Select the "Settings" tab, then drag the green arrow in the "Screen Resolution" field to the desired setting. Since you have a "widescreen set-up" you more than likely have a resolution where the first number is about twice the second number...they should be close to even to have a square image (bigger numbers show more detail than smaller numbers).
Hope this helps!

When I maximize my document, it is bigger than the screen


Have you tried adjusting the screen properties via Windows? maybe changing the resolution will fix it, and you can adjust the physical screen size too.

The color on the screen is too dark and the print is blurry.


Okay, I can really help with this one, lol. First right click on your background and click properties. Now click the settings tab and look for the screen resolution adjustable bar. set it back if you need bigger font. Now for the brightness...if you're on a regular desktop your monitor will have adjustable buttons. Click on them until you can find brightness. If that doesn't work, then I don't know. I'm on my dad's laptop and his is just fine, I don't even know how to change the brightness to this and I know a lot about computers, so try that.

Using tv as moniter for games


Try setting the resolution on the desktop when you are on the tv I found that I had this problem before myself and the only way to make it bigger was adjusting my desktop resolution I had also made sure all my settings where correct on my tv as well but I think if you goto the advanced properties on your secoundary or primary if you are using that and adjust the resolution.

are you using VGA or SVIDEO?

My screen is bigger than the monitor for my toshiba satellite laptop.


Hi.
What is happening is the settings that you have set on your laptop are too high for the monitor to recognize.
You will need to reduce the resolution settings in you display properties which can be found by going to start-settings-control panel- display- and in the display area choose settings.
Some video cards will let you adjust each item. Some you have to use the same resolution on both screens.
Shout if you need furthur input !
