I have HP Laptop HPG60-445DX PC Windows 7. I need to change size of letters back to original size-I dont know how


Display in Windows 7 allows you to make the text and other items, such as icons, on your screen easier to see by making them larger. You can do this without changing the screen resolution of your display. This allows you to increase or decrease the size of text and other items on your screen while keeping your display set to its optimal resolution.

Let's see how to change Display in Windows 7:

1. Click the Start and then choose the Control Panel option.
2. Control Panel window opens up. Click Display.
3. Choose one of the following:

Smaller - 100%. This keeps text and other items at normal size.

Medium - 125%. This sets text and other items to 125% of normal size.

Larger - 150%. This sets text and other items to 150% of normal size. This option appears only if your monitor supports a resolution of at least 1200 x 900 pixels.
Make your choice and Click Apply.
To see the change, Click Log off now and then Login again.

How do I increase text size


Are you referring to the default text size Vista uses? Then, contrary to windows XP, in Vista you have to separately increase the text size for different instances.
1. Right click on the desktop and select personalize

2. Select Windows Color

3. Select the required item of which text size is to be increased.(for example: Icon, Message Box etc.)

4. Then you can change the text size, font, color, and font weight
