You have set a customer DPI scale for your display.
Right Click on desktop
Choose "Screen Resolution"
Click on link that says "Make Text and other items larger or smaller"
Click on link that says "Set custom text size (DPI)"
Adjust the scale back to 100%
Apply the changes and all should be well.
Desktop is the interface of
Windows, which contain the icons, taskbar etc. that allow the user to
interact with the computer to perform different operations. Usually the
picture of icon represents its purpose so if you want your desktop
looking very clean then you can remove the title under the desktop
icons. May be you are thinking it is so easy, just go to rename option
and set blank name or single spacebar entry but the problem is this,
windows will not allow you to set blank name or name with single
spacebar entry. Here interesting thing is this; window will allow you to
use the ASCII code for a space, which is 0160. First clear all the text
from that icon Now type the ASCII code,
simply hold the Alt key, type the number 0160 from the number pad and
release the Alt key then press Enter button to finish the process. But if you want to remove the text of multiple icons, then repeat the
above process with adding one extra ASCII code for second icon, (for
example for second icon you type the 0160 twice and for third icon type
0160 three times with Alt key and so on).
IE8, while possesing powerful malware protection, cannot defeat everything. So here's a shot in the dark. Please remember, you haven't told us your computer brand or model or your operating system. So you leave me no choice but to call your gig out as a virus.
Go to another computer and download Malwarebytes Free and save it on a USB Flash Drive. Start your computer with the problem by hitting the start button and IMMEDIATELY pressing F8 as quickly and often as is posibble.
Using your arrow keys when the selection window appears, start in Safe Mode
When your desktop is loaded in ridiculously huge ICOns you've succeeded.
Connect the flash drive.
Install Run it
Eliminate the viruses
PLease do NOT leave me 2 thumbs up. Either 3 or 4 or nothing. I don't need to get trashed for free help with improper info.
If you need further assistance with this, repost and tell us your Computer name,model, Operating System.
You text by choosing SMS on the menu options. Do you have email on the device? If so, go into the email icon and see if the SMS option appears on the menu (same menu you look at to compose a new email). If you don't have email, you can see if it's on the menu within the call icon.
Go into your address book/contacts. Hit the menu key and you should see an option for the SIM contacts. Go into it and hit menu. This should show you a copy option. I think you can also do it by going into settings.
Get back if this was helpful or you need more help.
