When i play my game i cant see the whole screen how do i fix it?


If you are playing pogo games ?

Pogo.com is an online gaming website where you can play well-known games such as Monopoly, Battleship and Scrabble -- along with scores of other board, word, puzzle and arcade games -- in a Web browser window. The games on Pogo are programmed using Adobe Flash, and are viewed in a small box inside the browser. If your computer has a large display, you may find the games difficult to see because of the of the game box. Although you cannot independently adjust the of the Pogo game box, there are several tricks that you can use to make games appear larger on your screen. Magnify the browser window. In Internet Explorer 9, click the gear-shaped button in the upper-right corner of the screen, and click "Zoom" and "Zoom In." Browse in full screen mode. In Internet Explorer 9, press the "F11" key to enter this mode, and press "F11" again to leave it. Lower the screen resolution. In Windows 7, minimize the browser, right-click the desktop and select "Screen Resolution." Click the drop-down menu next to "Resolution," and select a lower resolution than the one currently displayed. Because a lower resolution uses less pixels to display the information on the screen, this has the effect of making the Pogo game box larger. Remember to change the resolution back when you are done playing. Disable the address and status bars in Internet Explorer 9 if a portion of the game window is cut off. Click the gear-shaped button, and then click "Internet Options." Click the "Security" tab, then click the "Custom Level" button. Click the "Enable" radio button next to "Allow websites to open windows without address or status bars," then click "OK" twice. Close and re-open your Pogo game window. Press the "F4" key. Some Pogo games enter full-screen mode when this key is pressed, but many do not. Hope this helps.

The whole screen is now tiny..i may have pressed something last nite but cant remember as i was drunk.lol..thanks again


There are a couple of things to check. If you have a "zoom" button on your keyboard, you can try pressing +(;larger) or-(smaller), you may have to press "CTRL" at the same time. you may also have the option to click on the "tools" icon, in upper right in taskbar, it may look like a gear. Right click on this abd, if you see a zoom option, click on that and pick your size. Another place to check is in your "control panel". Right click on "personalization", then "display settings". look at your resolution "slide bar" and if resolution is too high, no higher than 1024 x 768, slide it down some, this will shrink the size of display. If this does it for you restart. If this doen't do it for you click on "adjust font size(DPI). You should see "smaller font" with an empty box next it it. If the box is empty, click on that, then "apply", lower right, Then ok. You will have to resatart to make this take effect. That's it.

Hi i'm having a problem my computer screen is acting really weird every thing is zoomed in and is really big i just installed windows 7 and afterwards every thing stayed zoomed in i tried restarting it and...


  • If you have a mouse with a wheel, hold down the CTRL key, and then scroll the wheel to zoom in or out.

  • If you click the Change Zoom Level button c3f4930f-73f0-494b-a11a-eba6f829dede.png, it will cycle through 100%, 125%, and 150%, giving you a quick enlargement of the webpage.

  • From the keyboard you can increase or decrease the zoom value in 10% increments. To zoom in, press CTRL+PLUS SIGN (+). To zoom out, press CTRL+MINUS SIGN (-). To restore the zoom to 100%, press CTRL+0.

Hello, i broke the screen on my laptop wanting to switch it to my desktop monitor but for some reason it wont switch over. unfortunately since i cant see the screen i cant get into my startup menu any...


First, disconnect the laptop from the ac adapter and take off the battery and the memory. Press the reset button on your laptop. Connect your ac adapter only and press the power button two or three time while everything else is disconnected. Then, re-install your memory and your battery. Connect the ac adapter to the laptop and to your power source. Now turn on your laptop and see if you get a display on your laptop screen. If you do, then you have reset everything and you are back to where you started. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

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.

Dust behind laptop start button makes it hard to turn on


To clean out the start button, try using a compressed air canister with the tube attachment (looks like a straw). This makes the canned air's stream much more powerful and directed to allow you to expel the dirt from the power button.
