You could try going to "control panel" then personalisation and finally display settings look for the low high resolutions slider and adjust accordingly ( for windows vista)
this will adjust you monitor resolution so more items can fit on your screen

for windows xp i think from memory that it is "display settings" in the control panel you need i hope this helps in some way

How to change font size


A recent comment about small fonts in AOL Desktop prompted me to explain how to increase the size of your fonts in your Windows Operating System. AOL Desktop will recognize your preferred OS font size so that text throughout the program will be larger. (To increase your browser font size, which is handled separately, go to the Tools menu in the AOL Desktop browser, choose "Power Browsing" and go to "Page Display".) To set the font size in your Operating System (warning: this will apply to all your other applications, not just AOL), go to your Display Properties in Windows XP / Personalization Settings in Windows Vista. On XP, you can right-click on your PC desktop background and choose "Properties", then select the "Appearance" tab". Look for the "Font Size" menu at the bottom, and choose the dropdown for your preferred font size (e.g. normal, large, and extra large). In the screenshot below, you'll see the steps I just described below. I'm running "Large Fonts" so you can see how it impacts my window chrome...

Font sizing


Where do you want to change the font size on the overall computer or in a word document?

In a word document you will see a number at the top of the window that represents the font size that you can change. If you have problems within word there is a Help option where you can simply type: Font Size and it will bring up instructions to change.

To change font size on everything in the computer:
Find an open space on the windows desktop and Right Click then select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens click the Appearance Tab then look down towards the bottom left you will see where you can change the font size from Normal to Large or Extra Large. Change the size then Click Apply then click OK.

You can also get the Display Properties by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Once the display opens click the Appearance tab to change the font size.

HI GUDPM JUST WANNA ASK HOW TO DOWNLOAD FONTS IN NOKIA N7O????


Changing N70 Fonts f you are one of those who do not like the plain default font or if you are a "dare to be different" kind of person then this one is for you! Change the fonts to whatever you have available or whatever suits your taste. Get ready for a little facelift for your phonemag-glass_10x10.gif smile.gif

Some background information: Nokia N70 does not use TTF font files, instead it uses GDR file which is a compilation of all the fonts that will be used by the phone. What we will do in the following steps is select the fonts that we want to use, use an application to compile the GDR file containing those fonts and finally uploading the font to the handset. Alright, time to begin.

#1. Download and install GDR crreator Download it here. http://www.crazylittleworld.com/n70/egdrsetup.zip
#2. Run the application. Dont worry about the funny language. I will explain how to use it to make working fonts.
#3. You will see various tabs in the application. Each tab is there to set the font for a certain part of the phone. The phone preview on the left shows the part where the font belongs. Navigate till you get familiar with what is under each tab.

#4. Under each tab, click browse to select the font, set the size (defaults should work fine unless your font is too small or too big) and select whether you want just the basic character set (ASCII/Unicode) or want all the characters + symbols from that font (Symbian/Unicode). From my experience Symbian/Unicode is only needed for Text Messaging (2nd tab in the application). See the image below for descriptions on application.

Easy GDR

#5. After you've set the font, click the "Compile Font" button (see image below) to add the font to the GDR and have a look at "Preview Font" window to get an idea of what the font will look like on the phone.

Easy%20GDR

#6. Finally, click the "Compile to GDR" button and save the file. Name it as you please.

Easy%20GDR

#7. Now transfer the GDR file to your N70 via Bluetooth. Create a folder named "Fonts" in C:\System and copy the file from inbox to the Fonts folder (like we did with the Screensaver files above). In the end you should get this - C:\System\Fonts\<filename>.gdr

#8. Delete the GDR file from Messaging -> Inbox and restart the phone.

#9. Congratulations, you've just installed new fonts on your N70. quote.gif

The letters come out too small. How can I change


Normally you have to change the font size from the program that you're running, like notepad, text document, Microsoft word, you have to adjust the setting yourself on how big you want the font to be.

My words in my compt. are so small i cant even read my websites well.my kids played wiyh it and they shranked all the words.can u help?


Assuming you have a MS Windows OS. There are a couple of ways to remedy this situation. Option one is to change the screen resolution by right clicking on the desktop screen and selecting Properties and then Settings. Change the Screen Resolution to something lower than the current setting. This will cause everything to enlarge on the screen. Option 2 is to just change the font size as the standard. Right click on the desktop screen and select Properties. Select Appearance and change the Font Size to Large Fonts or Extra Large Fonts. If you are trying to change the font in Internet Explorer then choose View/Text Size, select Larger or Largest. That will change only the fonts inside Internet Explorer.

b0ss..............Accessibility is an increasing problem on mobile phones as screens get smaller and the amount of information packed onto them increases. It's only thanks to the fact that most mobiles now operate as cameras that we have a screen at all. And with a large chunk of the population lagging behind technological changes already, then it makes sense to offer as much help as possible. Font Magnifier is a simple piece of software that could have really big benefits for many people.
It's really easy to install and use, with font sizes changed by a scrolling bar and a preview of how big the altered text will be. When the phone is restarted all fonts will change to the chosen size. So those with small displays will be able to read their messages more clearly and anyone with sight difficulties will find their mobile phone much more accessible.
Languages:English, Spanish, French
OS requirements for Font Magnifier:
  • OS: Symbian OS
Mobile Full Series:
  • Symbian 9.1 Series 60 3rd Ed
  • down load frontmagnifier. 2.03...

Typeface too big for monitor


Open the preferences menu in your browser and set the desired font sizes. It is possible someone has set minimum font size to too large a value. This works in Firefox. I am not sure about IE, as I don't use that crappy program unless i am forced to.
It is usually best to set minimum font sizes and allow the site to set the font to any value greater than the set value. Make this value the size you can read comfortably. Warning, anything smaller than 8 points is hard to read,
