Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

Text too wide for screen

Thank you, I think your answer solved my problem except for one final question: The pages now fit on the screen without being too wide. However, the type is quite small. I went back in and set it to "large". Is that the only solution for that? I see well so I don't think font size is a vision problem. Maybe that's an answer to that, also, that I don't know. Thanks so much for your help. I appreciate it very much. ~Chuck

    Thank you, billspeer. I've since learned that I can use that wheel to change either text size or both graphics and text size at the same time by going to View>Zoom>Zoom Text Only and checking or unchecking that. I appreciate your help. ~ Chuck

    You're welcome chuck. Go to your screen resolution again and Try to set your color setting to Highest (32bit).

If you want to increase the font size of the text on the page and you're using a scroll wheel mouse, here's a handy little trick- hold down the Control button while rolling the scroll wheel up or down. This will increase/decrease the size of the text on the screen but won't affect the graphics.

Had to restore computer and now the text doesn't fit screen, how do I change it or make it smaller


Hi Mary,
If you are running Windows 7, you will go to the Personalize by right clicking on the desktop, then you can change any aspect of the desktop, i.e. desktop image, text, etc
If you are on XP, you can go to the "Display" in the Control Panel, then you can change the aspect of the text, usually it is the first thing you see there, make it "Normal". Here you can also change the Screen resolution, by making it larger to accommodate the text, usually 1024 by 768 is a good size. This may solve the problem altogether without changing text size.
Let me know how you make out, please rate and comment.
Thank you Joe

Browser Enlarged


If part of the web page is not visible on the screen, you may have accidentally dragged it off to the side. Click the green button at the top-left corner of the web page to resize the window to fit on the screen.
If your screen resolution is set to 800 x 600 or less, most web pages won't fit on the screen. If possible, increase resolution to at least 1024 x 768 in System Preferences > Displays.
You may have accidentally hit Command (Apple key) and the plus sign (+) key -- this makes the text bigger. To reduce text size, hit Command and hyphen (-) key.
Finally, if Zoom is turned on in the Universal Access setting, you be looking at only part of the screen -- zoomed in like using a magnifying glass. Hold down Command (Apple key) and ALT key and hyphen (-) to see if this is on -- it will unzoom (zoom out) by one step. Turn this off or on in System Preferences > Universal Access.
I hope that helps.

Monitor image size


There is nothing wrong with the monitor, the issue is that the web page you are looking at is designed for a lower resolution than you LCD is set for (Web pages are normally designed for 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768) you like have a wide aspect ratio monitor.

As I sit here writing this on my 12" wide aspect LCD I have a 2" wide white space on each side of my screen due to my 1280 x 800 aspect ratio.

The issue is one of WEB PAGE DESIGN not the fault of your computer video settings. The web page is written using page frames and fixed aspect ration settings to ensure that the page displays properly regardless of monitor type.

If you had a high end LCD (WUXGA 1920 x 1200), the web page would fill the upper left 1/4 of the screen.

If you lower the resolution of your display, then you'll have fuzzy icons and text, so essentially, get used to it.

Eventually, wed design will catch up with current display technology.
