You might need to fit screen size
click start control panel display desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list
or a browse button where you can select different pictures this may vary depending on your operating system


also settings you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal size,larger size or custom settings
always click APPLY after making any changes


right click in the top toolbar you will see a number of toolbars and options select the menu tab this will add at it to the toolbar


on the top of the internet page you should see some tabs file edit view favourites tools and help click on the view tab on the drop down list you should see a zoom size %

click a different percentage also a text size you might try a different text size although this will not increase the size of the page only the text fonts inside it


or there might be a menu button on the monitor where you can adjust reduce / expand the screen sizes usually located on the underside of the monitor of courese this will depend on your brand of monitor

hope this helps

How to install wins 8 on dell Inspiron netbook 1018


proceed according. God bless you
  1. Create a New Partition
    • 1 Launch the Disk Management tool on your computer running Windows 7 by opening the Start menu and typing "diskmgmt.msc" in the search bar. The Disk Management tool, showing all connected storage devices, appears.
    • 2 Pick the hard drive onto which you'll install Windows 8. The normal choice is Disk0, which is the primary hard drive. This disk should already show your C: drive, and possibly other items like recovery partitions.
    • 3 Verify the available free space on the selected disk. For most computers with no other dual-boot setups installed, the entire drive should be occupied, so you'll have to shrink an existing drive (like C:). If there is a section with a black bar titled "unallocated," then this represents free space not currently in use.
    • 4 Shrink your C: drive by right-clicking on it and selecting "Shrink Volume." The computer assesses and reports how much free space is available on the disk. You need a minimum of 16GB of free space to install 32-bit Windows 8 and 20GB of space for 64-bit Windows 8. Type either 160000 or 200000 in the "Enter the amount of space to shrink in MB" box. Increase that number if you want additional storage space for files and programs within Windows 8. Click "Shrink" to continue.
    • 5 Right-click on the new unallocated space and select "New Simple Volume." Leave the defaults, ensuring that NTFS is selected as the file system type. Give the drive a name, like "Windows 8."
    • 6 Insert your Windows 8 installation disc or USB drive into your computer. When the new drive is formatted, restart the computer and boot from your installation disc or drive.
    Install Windows 8
    • 7 Select "Custom" during the Windows 8 Setup initialization process.
    • 8 Select the new drive you created when the installation program asks you where you want to install Windows 8. Be sure to select the drive with the label you used for the new drive; if you install to the C: drive, you will overwrite your existing Windows 7 installation.
    • 9 Follow onscreen instructions to install Windows 8.
    • 10 Reboot after you install Windows 8, ensuring that you've removed any installation media. When the computer restarts, you are presented with a boot screen that lets you pick between Windows 7 and Windows 8.

I can't get the full screen on some hd channels and during commercials. It goes from full screen viewing on some channels to the picture shrinking and having a border around it.


There are a few picture sizes out there 4:3, 16:9, as well as some for movie screens. New televisions are 16:9 and when you are watching a true HD program, it will fill the screen perfectly. However the program may be broadcast in one of the other formats. This results in the bars on top/ bottom or on the sides. This is true for commercials too. If the commercial is or isn't in HD will determine if there are bars or not. All this is normal operation.

Acer aspire browser viewable area shrinks down to nothing


Hello,
I do not know why the viewing area decreases in size: I suspect that you may have too many toolbars. Remove the ones you do not need. In IE you right click on a tool bar and deselect ( If there is a check mark near a tool bar, click and the check mark will disappear)

Also you can use the full screen by Pressing F11 in you browser. You exit the full screen by pressing F11 again.
I believe this last option is your best bet short of customizing more fully your browser.

Hope it helps.

Hope it
