What is dpi


DPI is "Dots per Inch"
Setting the DPI size to a smaller number or percentage will decrease all items size on the display, while setting the DPI size to a larger number or percentage will increase all items size on the display.

Typically, the higher the dots per inch (DPI), the better the fonts will look. If you set the DPI higher than 96, and you are running a Windows Aero theme, the text and other items on the screen might appear blurry in some programs that are not designed for high-DPI display in this version of Windows. You can avoid this issue by using legacy DPI scaling (Windows XP style DPI scaling) for these programs.

How do I increase and set font size?


First, right click on your desktop and click on Personalize. Alternatively, you can go to Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization.


In the Personalization window, go to the left pane and click on Adjust font size (DPI).


If UAC is turned on you will need to make an additional confirmation so that the DPI Scaling window will launch. You can choose the default scale of 96 DPI or a larger one of 120 DPI, which makes the text more readable. If these two options are not enough you can click on the Custom DPI button and choose another size (DPI).


In the Custom DPI Setting window you can select the desired percentage for the DPI increase. You have the following options: 100% for the normal size of 96 DPI, 125% for 120 DPI, 150% for 144 DPI and 200% for 192 DPI.


If you set the DPI higher than 96, and you are running Windows Aero, the text and other items on the screen might appear blurry in some programs that are not designed for high-DPI display in Windows Vistamag-glass_10x10.gif. You can avoid this issue by using Windows XP style DPI scaling. Just check the appropriate option and press on OK.


The change can be applied only after a system restart. Close all the running applications, save your open documents and then press on Restart Now. After a reboot, the font size will be changed.

When set on 1280 x 1024 pixels everything looks great but too small for me to read. When I change the setting to 1280 x 800 or lower, words are blurry and taskbar disappears. Can you help?


Which version of Windows are you running? Slightly different between versions, but basically *somewhere* in Control Panel there will be something shown along the lines of Display Options, and somewhere in there will be an option to change Font DPI. (I think XP has a selection of either 80DPI or 120DPI, default is at 80 - Text is much larger and easier to read at 120)
In Windows 7 (and probably Vista) the path is- Start - Control Panel - Appearance and Personalization - Display - "Make text and other items larger or smaller"

How do I make my font and text size bigger?


If you want to make font and text larger in a Word document, just look at the taskbar and click font pull-down window (usually the default is Times Roman) and pick whatever font you want, then click the pull-down window (usually the default is 12) and pick a larger size.
Or you need to make a display adjustment. Click Start, Click Control Panel, Click Personalization, click Display Settings, choose Resolution up or down which will adjust icon and font size on your computer.
Or click start, Control Panel, Personalization then:
  • In the left pane, click Adjust font size (DPI). If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  • In the DPI Scaling dialog box, do one of the following:

    • To increase the size of text and other items on the screen, click Larger scale (120 DPI)-make text more readable, and then click OK.

    • To decrease the size of text and other items on the screen, click Default scale (96 DPI)-fit more information, and then click OK.

    To see the changes, close all of your programs, and then restart Windows.

    Text size is too small on my toshiba laptop using windows vista home premium. Is there a good way to enlarge it?


    If you are referring to desktop font size, right click on an empty portion of your desktop, pick personalize on the context menu, and on the left side of the window, you should see "Adjust Font Size (DPI)". You can change the font size to larger scale (120 DPI) which should make the text larger. For web browsers, most should have an option to change the text size in the menu, but these steps would be different for the various web browsers available.

    Everything is blury have to set screen resolution to 800by600 pixels to try too make any thing out.


    Connect the monitor to a laptop -- is it still blurry?
    If so, then the monitor is the problem.
    If not, then your computer (the video-card?) is the problem.

    How can I make fonts look good in an LCD monitor ?


    The VGA connection should be fine; I have DVI and when I switched from analog, the difference was pretty minimal, to my eyes.

    Is it just the fonts that are blurry, or everything? If fonts only, then this almost certainly suggests that running the ClearType tuner again would solve the problem. But this applies to all displays, so if one is good and the other is not, then this isn't it.

    If everything is a little blurry, then this suggests one of two problems -- the first, you report trying, which is that the display adapter is set to a different resolution than the native resolution of the LCD monitor itself. Your display adapter should probably be able to drive 2 monitors (the built-in laptop monitor and the external monitor) at once. You should be able to set their resolutions separately.

    Assuming Windows XP: Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings > at which point, you should see two monitors listed in a dropdown. Set them to their native resolutions there (using the slider bar, usually all the way to the right), and save.

    If you do have the display resolutions set to their native resolutions for both monitors, then it's possible that your external monitor is messed up. A quick test would be to run the on-screen settings, usually from a button on the monitor itself. If what is displayed there is sharp and what is displayed from Windows is not, then this points to a problem with the display driver. If everything, even the on-screen display is blurry, then perhaps the monitor settings are messed up -- usually there's an option to restore to factory settings -- try that.

    If that doesn't work, I'm probably out of ideas, unless you have further information.

    Acer's x193w killing my eyes..please help


    First off, LCD monitors have what is called a 'native resolution' and that is why it is recommended to be at 1440 x 900. That is the resolution they work best at. My first suggestion is to try to move the monitor closer to you. If that is not possible, try right-clicking on your desktop, click on the Properties tab (That is where you change the resolution. I am doing this for a Windows XP machine - if you are running Vista please let me know and I will try to walk you through it there). Click on the "Advanced" button and in the "General" tab, there should be a "DPI Setting" drop down box. There is usually 96 DPI and 120 DPI. Try 120 DPI and see if that helps.

    Second, try using your monitor's menu settings to help the color settings. On your monitor there is a "Menu" button of some sort. Press that and select "Acer eColor Management" and try "Text Mode" to see if that is easier on your eyes. You can also manually adjust the screen and lower the strength of the red color by picking "User" instead of "Acer eColor Management" and selecting the icon that looks like a pyramid of 3 dots. Try adjusting the Red slider and see if that helps.
