How to enlarge the icons on the toolbar

If you mean enlarging the task bar items please follow the following steps:

1-Access the Taskbar and Start Menu. This particular menu will allow you to customize your taskbar features and resize the icons. Click on the Start menu, or Windows logo, from within your taskbar.

2-Select "Control Panel," then select "Appearance and Personalization." On some Windows 7 computers, this option may also read as "Appearance."

3-Click on "Taskbar and Start Menu." This will open a Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box on your screen.

4-Change the size of the taskbar icons. Place a checkmark next to "Use small icons" within the Taskbar Appearance section to make your taskbar icons appear smaller.

5-Click directly on the checkmark if one is already present to enlarge the size of your taskbar icons.

6-Save your taskbar icon customization settings. Your new taskbar settings will go into effect immediately. Click on the "Apply" button to save your changes, then click "OK" to exit from the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties menu.

I want to know how to make the page type (font size) bigger so I can read the pages i browse easier to read. Print on the pages are to same. thank you

right click anywhere on desktop>properties and set the screen resolution to a smaller value.

To change your monitor's resolution


Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.



In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.


Drag the Screen resolution slider to the left to decrease the resolution of your monitor, making text and pictures appear larger. Or drag the Screen resolution slider to the right to increase your monitor's resolution, making text and pictures appear smaller.



Click Apply to have the new resolution take effect.



If the Monitor Settings dialog box appears, look at your display. If you like the new resolution, click Yes. If you do not like the resolution, click No, and return to step 3 to try a different resolution.


Click OK.


Microsoft Windows XP changes the resolution to the settings you chose.

I adjusted resolution on my HP notebook now when I turn on cant see screen. Please help

Hi Jess,

Boot the computer in SAFE MODE by Restarting the computer, and the moment its on keep tapping the F8 key untill you see a screen saying "Windows Advanced option...".

1. Select Safe Mode using the keyboard arrow key and hit enter.
2. This will load all basic drivers to start safe mode operation.
3. Go to Display Properties (WindowsXP) or Display Settings (Windows Vista) by right click on empty blank space on Desktop, then select Properties(Windows XP) or Personalize(Windows Vista).
4. Then change the resolution by sliding the Low to High slider bar. Do not press "OK" or "Apply" at this time.
5. Instead, click on Advanced Settings, and then click OK. Windows in Safe Mode will change the screen resolution according to new settings, and prompt a "Monitor Settings" dialog box prompting that desktop has been reconfigured, with countdown timer. Click on Yes to keep the new settings.
6. Alternatively, simply click on Advanced, go to Adapter tab, then click on List All Mode. Select a mode with screen resolution size and color mode that you prefer, and click on OK. Windows will apply the new resolution size and color quality on Safe Mode too.

How to troubleshoot flickering, jittering, shaking, or wave-like images on a LCD monitor. 1) Connect the display to the computer. 2) Turn on the computer.

Any monitor has something called a screen refresh rate. If you are replacing your old monitor with a newer one, there is sth called a screen refresh rate that you need to configure. Older monitors (size also matter) have a lower screen refresh rate than the newer ones. If that happens to be your case, find the refresh rate of your new LCD on its manual and adjust it like this.
  1. Right click on an icon free area on your desktop.
  2. Click Properties
  3. On the Property dialog click on the Settings Tab
  4. At the bottom of the form click on Advanced
  5. On the coming property dialog click on the monitors tab
  6. Under Monitor Settings you will find the screen refresh rate combo box, here select the rate that suits you screen and click apply.
  7. confirm your actions in the confirmation window.
Note: Be sure to select a screen refresh rate that matches your screen. If you select a rate bigger than the LCD's capacity you will end up with a black screen on your monitor and won't be able to see the desktop unless you boot in safe mode.

Dell blank page keeps appearing how can I correct

Sounds like your screen saver is set to a very short period, like 1 minute or less.

Try this, Right-Click on the Desktop Wallpaper (behind the icon on the desktop, NOT on an icon), then select Properties.

When that dialog window opens, Left Click on the Screen Saver tab at the top of the window.
This will select that page of options.

On the Screen Saver page, about in the middle of the page you should see

Wait: (and a box with a number in it) minutes (check box) On resume, password protect.

I suspect that the number in the box is small, like 1 or 2, try changing this to something like 15 minutes.

Now this solution assumes your on Windows XP, this is done slightly different on Vista, please inform me if this doesnt help you!

Hope this helps you, Good Luck :)
