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

How do I reset the monitor to correct font size


Hello Lawrie,

You don't actually adjust fonts or resolution on the monitor, you do adjust them in the control panel of the computer. To do this, open your start menu, select Control panel. When the control panel is open check the top left corner to see if it is in Classic or Category view, if it says Category, click the switch to classic mode link. If you don't see this in the top left look at the top right and look for Category or Large Icon View, if Category is selected select Large Icon by clicking on Category and then clicking Large Icon View in the list that appears.

Once in the proper view, click on Display and depending which version of windows you have select Settings on the top of the properties window(XP or older) or adjust resolution from the left column(Vista/7), now find the slider bar for resolution and slide it higher if you want the font smaller or lower if you want the fonts larger. This will set the number of pixels on the screen.

The default and best resolution for this monitor is 1280x1024, if that makes the fonts too small try 1024x768 next and 800x600 last. If the resolution is set too low to see the Ok and Apply button simply set the slider bar then press the enter button the first time, then you will be able to see the Ok and Apply if you need to continue adjusting.

Hope this helps Fixya,

Chris

Reply back with your version of windows if you require more specific instructions or pictures of any of the steps.

How do I shrink desktop icons, window tabs, font?


try to higher your resolution(right click, properties),if it does not solve your prob. i think you mess with the video card installer. install the video card installer again. About your icon dont worry it will return to its place after you get back your resolution.

Icons on computer are very large after closing a program; restart doesn't fix


Yes, it is normal because your game is running in a lower resolution. When the game is exited properly, then your normal resolution is restored but since it didn't exit properly, it forgot to change your resolution back.

Assuming this is windows xp, right click anywhere on the desktop that does not have an icon and select properties. There you can change the resolution to what it was; since I don't know what it was, you'll have to test a few to see which one looks the way it did before. Then once you find it, press okay and it will save.

Power went out and back on; now printer won't print


I had the same problem after a resent power outage. Here's what fixed mine.

Turn the power switch off.
Wait a 15-20 seconds
While holding the button on the front panel down turn the power switch on.
After the drum light comes on release the button wait then press the button again.
Turn the machine off then back on again and you should be back in business.

To prevent the problem in the future if you are not using the printer turn it off and if the power goes off while printing get the printer turned off before the power comes back.

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
