How to widen my screen


    • 1 Use the zoom in and out shortcut with your mouse. Many programs such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Microsoft Word allow users to zoom in and out quickly using their mouse and keyboard. Hold down the &quot;Control&quot; (&quot;Ctrl&quot;) key, and then move the mouse wheel forward to zoom in or backward to zoom out until the text fits your screen to your liking.
    • 2 Use the zoom command from your program&#039;s menus. If you don&#039;t have a mouse with a wheel or the mouse zoom shortcut does not work, try locating a &quot;zoom&quot; command in the &quot;View&quot; menu of your program. Many programs have an option to zoom in and out under the &quot;View&quot; menu, which will make text larger or smaller. You may have to select &quot;Zoom in&quot; or &quot;Zoom out&quot; several times before the text is the right size.
    • 3 Change your screen resolution. Altering your screen resolution can change the size of windows and text on your screen. Right click the desktop, select &quot;Properties&quot; (Windows XP) or &quot;Personalize&quot; (Windows Vista and 7), click the &quot;Settings&quot; tab (XP), or the &quot;Display Settings&quot; link (Vista) or click &quot;Display&quot; and then &quot;Adjust Screen Resolution&quot; (7). Adjust the resolution slider up or down, click &quot;Apply&quot; and then click &quot;OK.&quot;

Help.. my acer aspire computer screen has turned vertical on my notebook and the cursor isn't working.. what do I do?


Well, to get the screen back to normal, press Ctrl + Alt + Up Arrow. As for the cursor, try rebooting the computer after changing the screen back to normal. If that doesn't work, try another external mouse to get to the mouse settings from the control panel and see if anything has changed.
I hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

My laptop screen is zoomed in which is making all my icons huge. It makes my Internet pages huge also. How can I zoom out so my screen is back to normal size?


use this if using windows vista/windows 7

Set the zoom level in Magnifier. This can display objects on the screen up to sixteen times larger than actual size. Follow these steps to choose the magnification level that you want.

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Magnifier.

  2. In the Scale Factor list, select a level. The zoom level in the Magnifier window will change right away. Adjust the level until it's right for you.

use this if in windows xp


  • 1 Click the "Start" button in Windows.

  • 2 Select "Control Panel."
  • 3 Select "Appearance and Themes."
  • 4 Select "Change the Screen Resolution."
  • 5 Look at the left side of the "Display Properties" dialog window. About half way down the screen you will see a box labeled "Screen resolution." There is an adjustable slider in this box.
  • 6 Move the slider left or right, by holding down the left mouse button, and moving the mouse in the appropriate direction. Release the button when the slider is pointing to the resolution you desire.
  • 7 Click the "Apply" button at the bottom right of the window. The screen will go black for an instant, and then will switch to the new resoulution. You will also see a message pop up asking you to confirm the setting. If you are unsatisfied with the appearance, then click "no," and try another resolution. Otherwise, click "yes."

    How do I increase the text size on incoming e-mail or stuff I want to print. larry


    The easiest way to increase the text size on screen of your e-mails and browser contents is to simply hold the "Ctrl" key and scroll up with your mouse to zoom in and scroll down with your mouse to zoom out. If you don't have a scrolling mouse, hold the "Ctrl" key while pressing the "+" and "-" sign to adjust the text size.

    If you want to increase the size of the font on documents you are printing from web-sites, you have to look for the "Printer Friendly" button, or the "Print" button on the actual web-page. The developers of the article you are seeking to print have to manually do this themselves.

    If it's in a text document or something similar, you can highlight all of the text at once by pressing "Ctrl+A" (The control key and the A button, not the plus button) and increasing the font size in the program you are using.

    How do i zoom into a page?? my son zoomed out pressing some button on the keyboard and i cant figure out how to zoom back to normal


    Your question requires some clarification but I will try to sort your problem out.

    Now I do not know exactly what is you computer's configuration (OS, software etc) so if my advice doesn't work do not get frustrated but think of it as a clarification request and reply back with additional feedback.

    Now for the solution part, I assume that you are talking about an Internet browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox etc.

    Your son used the zoom feature which you can use to your advantage. Just follow these steps:

    1. Open Firefox or whatever browser you use and navigate to the website which you think has been 'zoomed out'
    2. Press and hold the Ctrl key and press 0 key to set it to default zoom level.
    3. To zoom in press and hold Ctrl and + keys and - key to zoom out.

    Note that you can also zoom in or out using the mouse wheel (if present) with the Ctrl key pressed.

    You can now zoom in or out any page to reduce eye strain. Hope this helps.

    HP laptop desktop screen seems to be zoomed in . all icons and wallpaper seem to appear quite large .


    There is an opion under conrol panel, accessibility options to zoom or enlarge fonts etc. for visually impaired people.. But also I guess there might be a hot key you have hit by accident, that zooms the desk top. What model of HP? Also right mouse click the desktop, click properties & check the 'appearance' settings.. There is an option for large icons & fonts. Maybe the HP hotkeys hook into that Windows option. Rgds,
