Compaq desk top screen to large


Right click your desktop and click resolution. Adjust it so that it is set to the maximum possible (native) and click apply. If you're talking about metro, you should be able to scroll scroll to reach the other icons. You can also adjust icon screen size if you go to the desktop, hold the control key and scroll using a wheel, or right click and change icon size.

Hello Dean,

It seems your windows resolution settings are set wrong, you simply need to adjust the resolution to match the monitor. To do this, open your start menu, select Control panel. When the control panel is open check the top left corner to see if it is in Classic or Category view, if it says Category, click the switch to classic mode link. If you don't see this in the top left look at the top right and look for Category or Large Icon View, if Category is selected select Large Icon by clicking on Category and then clicking Large Icon View in the list that appears.

Once in the proper view, click on Display and depending which version of windows you have select Settings on the top of the properties window(XP or older) or Adjust Resolution from the left column(Vista/7), now find the slider bar for resolution and slide it to 1280x1024. This will set the number of pixels on the screen.

The default and best resolution for this monitor is 1280x1024, if that makes the fonts/icons too small try 1024x768 next and 800x600 last. If the resolution is set too low to see the Ok and Apply buttons simply set the slider bar then press the enter button the first time, then you will be able to see the Ok and Apply if you need to continue adjusting.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Reply back with your version of windows if you require more specific instructions or pictures of any of the steps.

How do I reset the monitor to correct font size


Hello Lawrie,

You don't actually adjust fonts or resolution on the monitor, you do adjust them in the control panel of the computer. To do this, open your start menu, select Control panel. When the control panel is open check the top left corner to see if it is in Classic or Category view, if it says Category, click the switch to classic mode link. If you don't see this in the top left look at the top right and look for Category or Large Icon View, if Category is selected select Large Icon by clicking on Category and then clicking Large Icon View in the list that appears.

Once in the proper view, click on Display and depending which version of windows you have select Settings on the top of the properties window(XP or older) or adjust resolution from the left column(Vista/7), now find the slider bar for resolution and slide it higher if you want the font smaller or lower if you want the fonts larger. This will set the number of pixels on the screen.

The default and best resolution for this monitor is 1280x1024, if that makes the fonts too small try 1024x768 next and 800x600 last. If the resolution is set too low to see the Ok and Apply button simply set the slider bar then press the enter button the first time, then you will be able to see the Ok and Apply if you need to continue adjusting.

New Acer 5532 laptop; v.wide screen but not v.deep. Currently, large toolbar icons take up some 25% of the screen unecessarily - how to reduce their size down ?


Depends on which Windows version you have, unstated.

Right click on screen anywhere except other icons, go to "properties" and adjust screen res to max and also check under appearance that icons are "normal"

Calibrateing


With Windows XP in the lower-right corner of your screen is the Notification Area where there are a bunch of little icons. There should be an icon that looks strikingly similar to your Kodak 5100 AIO printer. Double-clicking this icon will bring up the printer's status window. In the top right-hand corner of this window there are three icons. The first from the left is the maintenance icon that looks like a crossed hammer and wrench. After clicking this icon it should become obvious how to calibrate your new ink cartridges and printer heads.

Adjusting window view


If you mean that your Windows desktop does not fill your screen, use the monitor screens menu to adjust the settings and make it fit the screen. If you mean the windows you view within your desktop do not expand to the edge of the screen, click the middle icon in the top right corner - between the _ and the x this should maximise the windows. For further info you will need to post more information about what equipment makes and models you are using. May also be better if you posted your problem in the correct section. This issue has little to do with speakers me thinks. Let us know how you get on.
