How do i reduce the text and icons on my laptop display/screen


Assuming you have a Windows system:
  1. First make sure you don't have the type size and icons set to a large size. Right click on your Desktop and choose 'Personalize'. Then in the lower left choose 'Display'. Make sure that you have selected 100% as the size of text and icons. If you have, proceed to #2
  2. Make sure that you are displaying at the native resolution on your laptop. If Windows doesn't have the right software drivers (instructions) for the display it will use some generic drivers which will work but will make everything appear large and potentially slightly fuzzy. Verify the potential resolution of your laptop with HP by looking up the model on their website and then checking the screen resolution. Then right click on your Desktop and pick 'Screen Resolution' from the context menu. Verify that the resolution is the same as the HP's listed resolution. If not, change it to match. If you can't change it to match that means you don't have the correct video card driver installed on your notebook. Go to #3
  3. To install the correct video driver for your notebook, go to the HP Support site and click on 'Detect my product'. This will install some HP software that will recognize your system and load the appropriate updated software drivers for all components. You want to specifically find 'video drivers' but it will probably be OK to let others found by the website be installed. Install the video drivers and then if the screen isn't displaying at the correct manufacturer resolution, go back and repeat the instructions in step 2 to manually set it.
That should get everything displaying at the correct size.

Large text


The first thing to check is the preferences for display. It sounds from what you say like it is there that the problem lies.

Right click anywhere on the desktop EXCEPT on an icon, and choose the bottom option "Personalize" from the menu that appears. On the left is an option called "Adjust font size (DPI)" start by checking that this is set to 96 and not the larger 120dpi.

You might also like to change the Theme back to Windows Vista and see if that fixes it. These options should change your screen back to the way it was.

Dell C840 Increasing resolution increase screen size and vice versa


Laptops when running in non native resolutions sometimes tend to use a small area, so that the bluring of text is not noticeable. The reason is that laptop text is only sharp in its native resolution, and in your case the possibility is that your native resolution is 1600x1200 (If you can post the exact model or a link with your machine configuration, I can confirm what the native resolution is).

However you can make the icons and text larger, the best way is to and change the font size in windows (display settings) from the normal to large or extra large. This makes all the fonts much larger and easy on the eye, and it also will keep the text large as you are still running it in native solution mode.
