Question about Computers & Internet

XP Windows are too large for monitor

For some reason, recently my Icons are larger, and websites that used to fit my monitor, now have scroll bars at the bottom of the screen.

My Outlook Express is now a lot larger than it used to be also.

I have used the Restore method 3 times and it is fixed for a day or two.

I have noticed that when someone exits Real Arcade, the screen goes black and I think that changes take place at that time.

    As soon as I changed the setting to 1024 by 768, everything was fixed. Thanks very much.

Sorry my screen is too large to read down, my scroll down is covered


Change the resolution of the monitor/screen. On the desktop, point somewhere where there are no icons. Right click the Mouse button and select Screen Resolution or graphics properties. Click the tab RESOLUTION. If the computer does not show you any higher resolution, the monitor may not be able to display it.

Desktop display smaller than screen


1) Right click on your desktop.
2) Select Properties at the bottom of the popup menu. This will open the Display Properties window.
3) Click on the Settings tab (it's to the top right)
4) At the bottom left there is a Screen resolution heading with a slider bar beneath it.
5) Slide this bar to the left and right until you find the resolution you like.

Sliding the bar to the left = lower resolution, larger desktop icons and less quality.
Sliding the bar to the right = higher resolution, smaller desktop icons and better quality.

If your screen goes blank after you click Apply then immediately hold down the Enter key.

If this doesn't work then it just maybe the case that you need to set the auto screen fit function on the monitor itself using the buttons provided on the monitor.

Please rate this solution by clicking the thumbs up at the top right of this solution. Your rating is much appreciated.
Thanks.

Yes, go into your computer's display settings and change the monitor over to 1024 by 768 for example. For windows XP go into control panel then display. Go to the Settings tab and slide bar over to a higher resolution. You will get smaller icons.

How do I fix the size of my icons and make the internet fit to size


How to resize Vista desktop icons

One of the complaints I hear about the Vista GUI is that "the icons are too big." Well, fixing that is a simple matter. Here's how:

Right click an empty space on the desktop.
Select View.
Click Classic Icons.

Another way is to use the scroll wheel on your mouse or trackball. With the cursor on the desktop, press and hold the CTRL key and scroll the wheel to make icons larger or smaller.


I hope someone having that problem will read this thread.
Cheers!

I just recently bought a Samsung 245BW monitor and am having problems getting the right setting. It looks OK, but I know it could look a lot better. I tried playing with different resolutions, contrast and...


1. Right-click on the Desktop.

2. Choose "Properties" from the Shortcut menu that appears.

3. Click on the Settings tab at the top of the Display Properties window.

4. Under Settings is a list or a scroll bar (depending on your Windows version) containing available screen resolutions. Click on or use the slider to select the resolution you want.

Lower resolutions will display larger letters and icons, while higher resolutions display smaller letters and icons on your desktop.

5. Click "Apply", then "OK".

6. You'll have fifteen seconds to decide if the new screen resolution looks good or not. If you like the way the screen looks, click "Yes"; otherwise, click "No" and go back to step 4 for a different resolution. (If you can't see the screen at all, Windows will automatically revert to your original settings after fifteen seconds.)

7. Click "OK".
