How do I change the desktop text, icons and bars back to 100% from 500% in Windows 8.1?


Hi Cindy

You have set a customer DPI scale for your display.

Right Click on desktop
Choose "Screen Resolution"
Click on link that says "Make Text and other items larger or smaller"
Click on link that says "Set custom text size (DPI)"
Adjust the scale back to 100%
Apply the changes and all should be well.

Regards
Andrew

How do i make the screen smaller


Make the resolution higher under the Display. Right Click on any open area on your desktop and select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens select the Settings tab. Change the resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and the more things will appear on the screen.

You can also get to the display by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. When the Display Properties window opens select the Settings tab. Change the resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and the more things will appear on the screen.

The icon display is taking up too much of my screen and I would like to reduce it.I can't seem to find the file that has that feature. I have done it before but can't remember how.


Hello amionalden, to make the [Icons] smaller; do the following. From the "Desktop Screen" paul7of9_74.jpg (Right) click on the "screen," there will be a 'list' of items, choose the "View." when you point to it a 'side window' with the [Arrow] will open. There will be another 'list' example: Large Icons, Medium Icons... Choose the {Medium Icons}, this will make them 'smaller.' "I hope this information is helpful? Thanks for using FixYa, paul7of9."

Need to purchase a manual for a Technics sa-gx290 receiver do you know where I could find one


Hi - Welcome to FixYa.

You don't need to buy one as I can provide a link where you can download the manual free:

http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/575/PANASONIC-Receivers-97110226

Click on the above linke and the manual will open in a new browser window. The actual manual is in a smaller window within the main page. At the top of this smaller window, there is a disk icon. Click on this icon to save the manual to your PC.

If the manual doesn't appear in the smaller window, you will also need to download Adobe Reader:

Why pay when you can get it free - legally!

If you are using Vista/Windows 7 Right click anywhere on your display and you should get an option under view to change the size of your icons or you could change the display ratio/screen resolution which will automatically adjust icon size the higher the display setting the smaller the icon.
