Question about Computers & Internet
I tried Personalize - Windows Color - Advanced - Item: Icon (to change the icon/font size on desktop, but i need that everywhere, not only on desktop).
Everywhere? If you change DPI, you change the appearance of everything everywhere. (The Home edition of Windows 7 does not contain "Personalize.") Only a change in DPI will affect the appearance of everything.
But without changing DPI, you can do the following. Right click on a blank area on the desktop and choose screen resolution. Click Make text and other items larger or smaller. You have some choices in the radio buttons or you can try a custom setting. These won't affect images but will affect icon and text appearance size.
Here are a few other things you can tinker with to get a view you like.
1) In the procedure you have described, when you get to ITEM,, choose more of the selection from the drop down list, then reboot.
OR, 2) Click on an open area in a web page. Hold the Control button down, roll the scroll wheel atop your mouse. 3) in the RUN box of Windows 7, type cttune and hit enter. Walk through this ClearTypeTuner procedure and you can at least have an easy go at adjusting readability to your liking. If you change your mind, you can always change the settings back. It does allow you to see how the font would look. --I have not mentioned the Magnifier option...
In brief, your monitor probably came with its best resolution set up. But you can use the "tricks" above to alter the appearance of sizes. You just may find readability diminishes.

Testimonial: "The other user tried to increase logon screen font size, and that affected somehow all the user profiles on the same machine. So eventually I asked her how it’s been done to roll it back. Here it goes: -In the Windows Registry Editor, navigate to the following key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop -Now in the right side, create a new DWORD value (32-bit) named LogPixels and then double click on for set its decimal value (make sure that you have set the value to decimal) between 90 to 150. With this value increased, everything displayed on desktop gets increased (including Outlook, what was especially inconvenient to me). Thank you for your response – we could share our findings with each other:)"

Most projectors have a set resolution. If everything gets really big then the projector has a very low resolution. There is nothing that can be done to make it got to a better resolution other than right clicking (windows xp +) the desktop. Goto properties. Then click the settings tab. set the resolution to whatever your projector can support.
If windows gets stuck at a particular resolution (when you plug in another monitor and it is set like it is the projector or vise versa) You should install the monitors drivers and the projectors drivers. These should be avalible on the manufactures site(s). This will cause windows to use the profile of that device instead of the generic "pnp montior" driver. That way it will always know what resolution to set the device to when it is plugged in.
Hope this helps
If you want to know where to get the drivers just google the manufactures name +drivers. Good luck

LOL, no wonder. Are they still around? They've been bought and sold so much that I thought they were completely stripped.
Get into your AOL email and look for a help option somewhere while in the email client.
