My screen of computer is so big the contents are enlarged my kid has pressed some buttons pls help

Hi nayyarshelly,

I like to help you regarding your concern having big Icons on your desktop, you mentioned that your kid accidentally pressed something on the machine that made everything big, See steps below to changes the Icons or your systems desktop settings.

  • First the system should be turned ON and logged in to Windows, I am assuming that you have Windows7 on your computer.
  • On the keyboard Hold down the CTRL button while holding down the CTRL key on the mouse scroll, scroll backwards this should make things smaller again.
  • If the screen on the Internet is also big do the same thing while your Internet Explorer is open this should change the size of the text / pictures anything on the Internet explorer.
  • But if the above does a different function from what you are experiencing then I believe that you are experiencing some changes in the resolution of the screen if everything is Enlarged.
  • Click on Start then on the search bar type in display, a list will show look for Display then click on it to open up the Display window then click on Adjust resolution.
  • The resolution on your screen depends on how big the LCD screen is
  • On the Resolution page you can pretty much check each resolution on the list that will be better to you, then click on Apply lower right then OK to apply settings on this page.
I hope that this will be of help regarding your concern.

Have a nice day,

Two things may be the issue. 1. The camera is broken (return to store) 2. Camera is disabled from the BIOS. To access the bios settings you have to press a key when turning on the laptop (usually and F1 - F12 key or the DEL key) Once in there make sure the camera is not disabled.

I'm trying to figure out how to make the display show on a larger flat screen monitor. Any help would be appreciated. I found where you would change the resolution under Control Panel and it showed 2...

if you are trying to use a lap top to display on a Flat Screen TV, then hook the laptop to the TV with a 15 pin D cable or a HDMI cable(what ever connector you have in common), the switch the TV to PC and then look on your laptop for an ICON that shows a TV set and acomputer screen together. On mine it is hold down the function key and tap the F6 key( Fn+F6) on some computers it is the Fn+F5 key, this switches the display from the laptop out to the TV on to the Aux PC input.

Desktop screen saver was not full screensize, so i set to maximum setting 200% and now the whole thing is too big and desktop icons way too big to work with, how can I get into system to reset or...

It sounds like you changed your desktop background resolution settings and not the screensaver. Right-click on your desktop on any clear area that doesnt have an icon and if this is WinXP select properties, or if Vista select personalize. Select the settings tab and you should see a screen resolution adjustment slider that will allow you to change your screen rsolution which intur affects the size of all your icons etc. Select the size that suits you. 1080 X 786 is a good place to start. You're probably set to 800 X 600 right now.

"Programs" list is too large for screen on my XP

Your menu should extend to allow access to all selections when you put your cursor near the end of the menu.

Usually you see a small arrow shape at the end and if you place your cursor on it, an extended menu opens. If that isn't the case, I have included pictures to help you change your program menu.

Go to the start bar and right click where the arrow is in picture 1.
A little white box opens that says "properties." Click that.

The menu shown in pic 2 opens. Make sure that start menu tab is showing and check the box that says "start menu" and click the customize "button."

The new menu gives options to change how your menu functions and what it has on it.

However, if everything looks to big and seems to run off your screen, that is a different matter. Your monitor settings may have been changed.

If that is the case, you need to go to start, control panel and choose "appearance and themes." If control panel is in classic view, you will see a bunch of icons. Select the one that says "display."

Double click, and a new menu opens.

Select the settings tab. Look to the bottom left to see what numbers appear and where the slider is. If the slider is on LESS, slide it to "more." and click ok. You might have to play with the settings to get it right for your monitor.

If that is not active and will not let you increase resolution, above that there should be a video card between the word "display" and "screen resolution." That is the adapter that controls your monitor settings.

You may need to reinstall or change the driver for your video adapter. Do that by hitting the advanced button and then go to adapter or the tab listed by the same name that you saw on the first screen.

It should be in the back. The driver will be listed there. If you have trouble with this, you can go here to read more about changing drivers. Remember that you are interested in the video adapters, not the monitor.

I hope I have not confused you by answering two questions, but your problem is a little strange and I didn't want you to have to come back unnecessarily. You can leave comments during the ratings process if you have any confusion or questions. Thanks.
