If you close the browser minimized or shut down with it in that size, it stays that way when you open it next time. Always close it with the X in the top right corner with it full size. If that does not work after a couple of restarts, we have to try some other things.

SOURCE: text size is too small on my toshiba laptop using

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.

You appear to be cloning your internal LCD and as long as it is active, the resolution setting for the LCD is also controlling the resolution of the external monitor. When the LCD is closed, then the default resolution of the external monitor is being used by Windows 7 (It apparently has autodetected the size of the monitor and knows the Highest optimal resolution it will display.) The higher the resolution, then smaller the icons.
To resolve, go to display properties and check the resolution of the internal LCD and then set the External display to the lower resolution.

How do i enlarge print size on my email

try this - when you have your email open - by your X tab where you close the window, there should be a tools tab (place your cursor over tab & don't move it & a small box will appear to tell you what the tab is used for) .
left click on tools tab, a box will open, on my page the 3rd one down is the zoom.
place your cursor over the zoom & a 2nd box will appear.
move your cursor over to that box & over the percentage that you want to increase your zoom, then left click.
this will increase the size of your picture & print until you go through the process again to reduce it.
I have mine set @ 100% until I get something with small print, then I enlarge it for a time.
you can leave it on what ever setting that you want.

The browser remembers last opened windows size, so, try to open only one Firefox / Explorer / Chrome window, maximize it, and then close it. This should fix the problem.

I just want to be able to enlarge my print size

  • Simply press and hold down the "control" key, while pressing the "plus sign" key. Be sure to keep the "control key" depressed while you press the "plus sign" key. Each repetition will enlarge the text. This can make reading small text SO much easier!
  • To return the text back to its original size (being polite to the next user), simply press, and hold down the "control" key and the "minus sign" key. Each repetition will decrease the text size

  • Log on to your computer and open the document you want to print. Click on the "Print Preview" button on the toolbar.
  • 2 Click on the "File" menu and choose "Print Preview" from the drop-down list if the "Print Preview" button is not available. The "Print Preview" function will show you exactly what the finished print will look like.
  • 3 Click the "Close" button to close the Print Preview window, then highlight the entire document and click on the "Format" menu. Choose "Font" from the drop-down list and change the font.
  • 4 Click the "Print Preview" button again to see the finished print. Continue to adjust the font size until the print looks good

    When I open Internet explorer or any web sites on IE they appear

    The default behavior for IE is to open at the same size it was at the last time it was closed.
    While the default does apply in many cases it's not always consistent.

    Try the following workaround.
    Open a single IE window to the smaller size.
    Drag the corners of the window until it completely fills the screen.
    Do not use the maximize button to enlarge the window.
    Hold down the Ctrl key, keep it depressed,
    and using the mouse click File and then Exit on the menu bar.
    Do not use the "X" in the upper right corner to close the window.
    Internet Explorer should now open in a full window.
    If it still opens to a smaller size repeat the above instructions, substituting the "Shift" key for the "Ctrl" key.

    Do this. With one of the windows open instead of using the square box to enlarge the window, use the mouse cursor to drag the corner of the window out to the size you want. Then close the window by hold down the Control key while clinking on the X next to the square box. The next time you open this type of window it should be the size you want.

    PC does not hold the monitor wide screen setting.

    Do you mean your internet explorer window?  You need to stretch the explorer window to the size you like, then close, it.  IE remembers the size of the last window you closed, and then when you open it, it makes the new window the same size as the last 1.


    Hope this helps.
