Hi,

Initially, pls increasing the size of your Screen Resolution. This could be done inside the Settings tab of your Display Properties. The Display Properties is inside the Control Panel or by doing a right click on any clear area of your desktop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I can't see my screen or the words How do I enlarge them


You can either enlarge the picture by lowering your screen resolution, (in Windows, right click the desktop, then click on properties or Screen Resolution, then move the slider down some to increase your screen picture size.) or you can go into the Windows Control Panel, and look for ease of access center, then optimize visual display, and make fonts bigger there.

Greetings, Welcome to Fixya!

2.)A rectangular menu box appears.
3.)Select Properties, found right at the bottom of the menu box.
4.)Select the Settings Tab, found on the top right hand side of the window.
5.)On the bottom left hand side you will notice a slider bar under the heading Screen Resolution.

Change screen orientation


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish. Hope this helps

I want to save my resume picture as my image file..but i was not able to find ways to cut it from the document and save it in My pictures folder..


Open your resume file in whatever program you used to create it. Press Print Screen on the keyboard (usually next to F12) to take a snapshot of the whole file and save it as a .bmp or .jpg file.
Open Windows Paint. Load the picture in to it using the File menu.
Then select the dotted line box in the drawing tools. Move the mouse to top left of where you want to start cutting and press and hold the left mouse button.
Now with the button still pressed move the mouse accross and down to where you want the cutting to stop and release the button. It will put a box around the bit that you want to keep. Click on Cut (scissors) and go to the File menu and click New and then click Dont save. Then click Paste and it will paste your cut image in to the new empty file. save the new file with a different name to the original so you don't overwrite it.

I have knocked a button on my laptop the screen has gone small i can not make it bigger i have been into properties but dont know where to go next


Position your Mouse on your Desktop. Just on the background. Right click. Select Properties. Select the 'Settings' Tab. You can select the resolution of "800 x 600" for larger icons or if you want more desktop area move to the right. I am set to "1400 x900"

The other setting you should look for is the Color Quality. Generally this should be largest number. IE 32 bit.

Have black line on right side of screen and cant see all of icon on left side of screen


What type of screen do you have? If it is a CRT (rather than a flat panel) it is probably due to the screen alignment.

Go into the menus on the actual monitor and look for something called Horizontal Alignment (or similar). You should be able to move the whole picture left and right. You may need to play with some of the other settings (e.g. Horizontal Size) to get it just right.
