Noodle 30: Can you suggest something else?Desktop titlebars and text still @500%

Noodle30 thanks for the help! The icons got smaller when I scrolled the mouse wheel but everything else is still 500%. Can you suggest something else? Cannot make the screen resolution larger because I can't see or get to that part of the screen to change it!

Why not just right click on the screen and (If you are using Windows 7) choose Screen resolution from the menu that appears. Then change the Screen Resolution to a smaller Resolution.

SOURCE: task-bar & start-menu disappeared

Just do as I say - it will be ok and sort itself out - the screen will not go blank and the drivers are still installed in Windows and will just be reinstalled, thus associating themselves with the card again. No internet connection is needed and the drivers will be reinstalled automatically without the need for user input.

To gain access to that which is 'off screen' push the mouse against the edge of the screen and it should move the display into view

Browse to the below given website.

Choose the operating system. Download the Ricoh driver in chipset category and touchpad driver under Input Device Driver category. It must resolve the issue.

Revert back for any clarifications.

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.

What else can I try to reset Windows 8.1 desktop from 500% back to 100%-Text too big to see?

I would use a HIGHER resolution, as this will show things in a finer perspective. The two most likely maximum resolutions on your PC are 1366x768 or 1920x1080

Text, Icons and Bars set at 500% cannot change

Hook up a mouse with a scroll wheel if you have one, hold down the ctrl key on your keyboard then scroll down on the mouse wheel. See if that works. If it's your desktop that is big as well, right click the desktop, click where it says screen resolution and change it to make it smaller. If that doesn't work let me know and we will try something else for you.

Text too small

This can be changed from display settings if you are talking about the text on the desktop ..Just click right on the desktop ..choose properties and select the last in the right ...settings you can select a smaller resolution ..(best for 17 inc is 10024 /768 )and click apply and OK ..
if you do not want to change the resolution but need larger icons and text ..just select on the same window advanced..and you will have the possibility to increase the icon and text size with the percent you want ...After that click apply and OK to exit ..It may ask to restart for to apply the changes..
if you are talking about the writing in the can zoom it by changing resolution ..or by pressing down the ctrl button and scroll up or down ..
Also all text size can be selected manually for each location if you click right on desktop and in the window select appearance (second in the right 0 and advanced..This advanced feature will allow you to select the size color and font size for each item by one between them ..for title and menu bars..etc.
But , I suggest not to mess with that ..cause you may not be able to manage it well ..just engage a smaller resolution and will solve the issue for the writing .

I have a flashing mail icon where it shows you have a text what does it mean and how can i fix it

Usually this means the text Inbox/Outbox is full, once you delete them it should go away. You can have 500 text messages total on your reserved memory. Once you reach 500 you get the flashing mail icon and it saves texts to the smartchip (which holds 30 extra texts) and you won't be able to send a normal sms message, it will make you send a mms slide. Delete your messages, and that should fix it. Hope this helps, if you have anymore questions feel free to ask :)

Hi, i have installed windows xp but display is not proper and text size all so i am enable to change Please suggest me if you can

To change the text size.
1) Right click on the desktop.
2) Select "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
3) Then select the "Appearance" tab.
4) In the "Font size" field select "Normal".
5) Click Apply.

To change the resolution.
1) Right click on the desktop.
2) Select "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
3) Then select the "Settings" tab.
4) Go to the "Screen Resolution" slider bar.
5.1) Sliding to the left would decrease resolution meaning less quality and larger desktop icons.
5.2) Sliding to the right would increase resolution meaning greater quality and smaller desktop icons.
6) You will have to play around with this slider bar until you find a resolution that you like.

NB: If your screen goes black after you have set a resolution then it means that your graphics card cannot handle that resolution, immediatly HOLD down the "Enter" key to cancel setting.

Please take the time to rate this solution, it's the thumbs up on the top right hand side of this solution.
