Question about Computers & Internet
All of a sudden my desktop icons will change from normal size to huge - with a half dozen icons taking up an entire 21'' monitor screen! No idea why this is happening. Can anyone help with this?
Right click on the desktop and click on properties to get to the display properties. Select the appearance tab and there should be an option for icon size. In some versions, you need to click on the settings tab and properties to set the icon size.
Please let me know if this solves the problem

sounds like you are stuck ina lo resolution mode,
Right click on your desktop (not on an icon)
in the menu that comes up, choose Properties,
Then go to the settings tab.
if the screen resolution reads 640 x 480, and you can t change it to higher than that, it is most likely that you need to re-install your graphics drivers (as this is the standard configuration)
download updated drivers from the manufacturer's website.
once downloaded and installed, you should then be able to change the resolution setting.
