How do I reset my screen appearance to default settings?

I messed with too many buttons like screen resolution and zooming in and out. Now I can't see all the screen at once because the font and images are too large for the screen to show.

Go up to the apple logo, select "system preferences" go to "display" move through the different resolution options. Typically the largest numbered combination will look the best.

SOURCE: my desktop image has zoomed in by about 400%. How

You can check the system preferences, universal access. There should be tabs at the near top of the panel. The 'seeing' tab has the zoom feature. Set it to 'off' and see what happens to your desktop after you change the setting and close the panel

Macbook screen is zoomed or magnified too much. How do i reset it?


Accessibility Zoom?

If everything is messed up and not just one app, you may have managed to switch on accessibility features and triggered the zoom. Does the screen scroll around as you move the cursor?
As all of the controls are customisable, some things may not work but try <option><command><minus> to zoom out.
Go to System Preferences and select Accessibility. Choose Zoom on the left and uncheck 'Use keyboard shortcuts to zoom' and 'use scroll gesture...'.

Otherwise, some of the other suggestions should help.

How do i change the zoom levels of my computer


If you are talking about a internet browser usually it's Ctrl + to zoom in or Ctrl - to zoom out

If you are talking about screen resolution than:

1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.

2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.
FILE > PRINT PREVIEW Prior to printing, got to the print preview screen. There will be a window of the print there and as/if you chance any settings, the print preview window will show (exactly) what the printed page will look like.

FILE > PRINT OPTIONS There you can set the header and footer margins. If nessassary.

How to change text size to be larger


This depends upon what program you are running.

If you mean the Internet, you can change the view settings on most browsers by zooming in (go to "View" in your toolbar).

If it's a Microsoft application like "Word" or "Excel", you can increase the font size or the magnification of the document - again, from the toolbar.

Change the Picture Resolution setting to a lower resolution and then save. Then touch the screen...The zoom function will then appear at the bottom of the screen.

My laptop screen is zoomed in which is making all my icons huge. It makes my Internet pages huge also. How can I zoom out so my screen is back to normal size?


use this if using windows vista/windows 7

Set the zoom level in Magnifier. This can display objects on the screen up to sixteen times larger than actual size. Follow these steps to choose the magnification level that you want.

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Magnifier.

  • 2 Select "Control Panel."
  • 3 Select "Appearance and Themes."
  • 4 Select "Change the Screen Resolution."
  • 5 Look at the left side of the "Display Properties" dialog window. About half way down the screen you will see a box labeled "Screen resolution." There is an adjustable slider in this box.

    1. Had some problems recently with my lap top.


    The action you took to fix your computer by resetting it has reset the screen resolution to what sounds like the XP default.

    To adjust the screen resolution follow this set of instructions-

    First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

    The display properties dialogue box will appear, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

    Screen Resolution
    This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

    Changing the Resolution
    To change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

    After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box, if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

    The monitor is giving a zoomed in view . its not giving the full view of the desktop screen rather a section of it is zoomed in . there are no settings to zoom out .??

    try doing this
    go to Desktop/right click/properties/Settings/Screen Resolution/
    What do u c...what's the resolution there...800x600...
    if the slider(pointer) is active use it to increase it to say 1024x768, 1152x864, 1280x1024 etc.

    I bet you can't solve this.


    We have a Canon A520 and it was having all the symptoms noted. Searched for a resolution on numerous sites including the Canon Support site. While on the Canon Support site, I found an FAQ on "How to RESET the A520". Turn camera on, find and hold MENU button for 5+ seconds until "Reset settings to default?" screen appears. Arrow over to OK and press the SET button. When we did this the battery low indicator showed, replaced batteries with standard alkaline batteries. Everything functions properly, with no additional problems for the past 5 days. I guess the camera just lost its mind and had to be defaulted and rebooted, hope this helps.

    Settings affected


    The functions available from the arrow pad, which are Self-Timer (arrow left key), Exposure Compensation for adjusting brightness (arrow up key), Macro and Super Macro Modes for close up photos (arrow right key) will all be reset using the RESET arrow pad button. Also, the quality/resolution will be set back to the default of HQ, but settings such as the language, the date and time, sleep time setting and video out to either NTSC or PAL are settings which are not changed by using the reset button. These settings need to be manually selected through the menus in order to reset or change them.
