Question about Samsung SyncMaster 712N 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Font Appearance I had the fonts darker and thicker than they are now, I don't know how I got them that way. Auto adjustment was hit by acccident and now the fonts are skinny and what I call whimpy. Also I do not know how to use the buttonson the monitor to work with the menu, I tried and all I can work with is brightness and contrast. I worked with a support person a few years ago as I had purchased my first syncmaster 712n and one of the pixels was showing, the font was the way I like it, I exchanged it for the one I am using now and I have font problems, if auto adjustment is hit.

Font is very big

Hi jjsbeach...

You need to check two places to see about reducing the font size.
Note: > ...means to go to or next
1...Look in the right hand corner at the bottom of the page and you will see may see 100%...if you do not then click on the arrow down and a window will open allowing you to size the window from 50% to 400%.
2...Left double click "Start">Control Panel>Appearance and Themes>Display>Appearance, look down at the font size and make sure it is set to "normal"...
If you are sending an email and you want to make the font smaller,larger, or a different style then you will need to open your email and look at almost 1/4 down the page on the left hand side of the page, you are looking for a tiny pair of sissors in line with other items, in that row you can change your font/style/size.
You can adjust the size of your font/change font style, etc. all from the bottom of that window
