Normal size for dpi


DPI, or "font size" is variable, depending on your monitor's native resolution, The resolution you have selected for it in Windows (Desktop-->Properties[right-click]-->Display Properties-->Settings), and what program you are currently using (browsers can be "zoomed").

I would try adjusting your monitor resokution first, before changing display font size. Try this page for some help with XP: http://www.andybrain.com/qna/2008/02/09/how-to-change-the-font-size-in-windows-xp/

This page for help in Win7: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/443-dpi-display-size-settings-change.html

There really is no such thing as "normal" DPI font size. Most people with decent eyes would probably use 96 as a standard.

Ledttering to small.dont know how to change to larger setting.


First, right click on your desktop and click on Personalize. Alternatively, you can go to Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization. In the Personalization window, go to the left pane and click on Adjust font size (DPI). If UAC is turned on you will need to make an additional confirmation so that the DPI Scaling window will launch. You can choose the default scale of 96 DPI or a larger one of 120 DPI, which makes the text more readable. If these two options are not enough you can click on the Custom DPI button and choose another size (DPI)
I hope this has helped

Can you please change my font size to large as I have terminal cancer and can not see too well these days, also how do I get in to my web mail as I have forgotten


You did not report all ,If you are want reour window office follow the steep
It sounds like your DPI setting is too large. Change it back to 96. To do
so, bring up the Display properties (either by selecting it out of the
control panel, or by right clicking on the desktop and selecting
properties). Go to the tab that says settings, and then click on advanced
in the lower right corner. On the general tab of the new window that pops
up, you will see the drop down box for DPI settings)

Putting a photo onto fifa 09


Not knowing anything about this application, I can say that many of these apps require a JPG of a small size, such that they cannot exceed a specific size. If they do, they won't display, or not properly.
Try making your JPG or video image smaller than 96 dpi by 96 dpi. Also, if you are not using a JPG image, but a GIF or a TIFF, it simply might not want that kind of an image.

I have a ViewSonic flat screen monitor. The images on the sign in page are fuzzy and unreadable. I have Windows XP.


I would check the connections between the monitor and computer. Also the refresh rate and/or resolution might be wrong. To correct this, you will need to boot your computer in safe mode. (restart computer, right after the computer's logo appears rapidly press the F8 key until a black and white menu appears. Select SAFE MODE) once the computer boots to safe mode, the sign on screen will appear very large. Sign onto the computer once at the desktop, RIGHT CLICK the background and select PROPERTIES. Once the display properties window appears click on the last tab SETTINGS. Here is where you can adjust the resolution. Take the screen resoltution to a low setting. You can always change this later when you boot your computer normally to get a better view. Next click on the ADVANCED button click on the MONITOR tab, usually flat screens operate at a lower refresh rate then CRT monitors. I usually keep my refresh rate to 60 Hertz. Next click on the GENERAL tab. This will allow you to change the DPI setting. I usually keep mine set to 96 DPI. You may want to experiment with this as monitors vary. Once done, click on the APPLY button then OK. Restart the comptuer and see if this has improved your display. You may need to do this several times trying different settings until you get a clear display. If you've exhausted all these steps, try a different monitor or changing the cable. If that fixes the problem then you know you have a bad monitor or cable. Good luck, let me know how it turns out.

I will advise you to use AVG or Norton instead of a Shield Deluxe 2009.

As it is not good one and not updated regularly with the definiton, (my own experience with this and my clients) Often creating problem with the system even to crash.!!

If you have not paid for it yet, then better to switch over with a Better Anti virus. (a freeware is also good as AVG 8.0 without paid )

RECOMMENDED AVG

Let me know your Opinion before giving any vote for this.

Following installation of Norton 2008 all pictures viewed through internet explorer are poor quality and pixilated


Do you use ie6?
IE6 is set up to resize the images based on the Display DPI setting. You can either set the DPI to the default (Normal - 96) or remove IE6's UseHR registry key to deactivate image resizing. Here are the relevant information (from Microsoft Knowledge Base):
Image Scaling in Internet Explorer (hi-res)

How to Activate Image Scaling
Internet Explorer 6 and later automatically adjusts the scale on higher resolution systems when the DPI setting is higher than 96 DPI and the "UseHR" registry value is added to the registry. These are usually done by the manufacturers of higher resolution systems.
_registry() warn.gifWarning!!!: Using the Windows Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems requiring the re-installation of your operating system and possible loss of data. I do not and will not support problems that arise from you editing your own registry. Use the Registry Editor and my directions at your own risk. Be sure that you create a backup of your registry and be very sure that you know how to restore it. If you are not sure how to do both of these things then STOP here!! and read the directions.
Set the DPI
These are the steps for changing the DPI setting on your system.

    Right-click the Windows desktop to display the context menu.
    Click Properties on the context menu to display the Display Properties dialog.
    Click the Settings tab on the Display Properties dialog to display the Settings tab.
    Click the Advanced button on the Settings tab to display the monitor properties dialog.
    Select a DPI setting in the Display frame of the monitor properties dialog to change the DPI setting.
    Restart your system to allow the changes to take effect.
    Add the UseHR Registry Entry
    The UseHR value is added to the Main key under "Internet Explorer" as follows:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
    Right Click in the right pane and select New>DWORD value and set its data to 00000001
This problem can also be caused by bad video drivers. Update your drivers from the manufacturers site.
