Use your tab button to navigate to the buttons. I have had this happen. Pull the screen up as far as you can to see the buttons, and then watch the buttons change as you tap the tab button, then hit enter. This will do the same as your mouse.

Rate me if this works.

The display screen got smaller.How can I bring it back to normal size?

You have to change the resolution of the screen.
Right click on the desktop, not on an icon- Properties- settings- at the "Screen Resolution" box increase the value.

The following is for Windows Vista:

The pictures are too wide all people look fat

You most likely have a wide screen and the screen resolution needs to be adjusted to suit the monitor.
Go to the Control Panel - Display and adjust the screen resolution until you get a normal image and correct screen aspect screen ratio. Start with a screen resolution of 1024X768 and gradually increase it until you get an image that suits your screen.

How do I get my screen to fit my monitor properly on my computer?

Two ways to change your "screen settings":

1. Right-click one time on an empty area of your desktop.
2. Select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.
3. Click on the "Settings tab" along the top.
4. Move the "Screen resolution" pointer to the left or right along the bar, depending on which way you need it.
5. To test it, choose "800 by 600 pixels" to the far left.
6. Click [OK].
7. Your screen will temporarily change. If you like the setting, accept the setting.
8. If your screen "goes away" ... not to worry ... It will return to the way it was in a few seconds if you don't select anything.

Hope this helps!

Monitor is enlarged, wont return to normal size

You may have hit the "F11" key which takes the open window to fullscreen. "F11" toggles large, small... If not that, beboot. If that doesn't clear it up, then the display settings have gotten altered. Right click on the desktop, select "settings" and increase the resolution. Windows should prompt you to keep or reject the change. Select yes or no when prompted.

Black Bars each side of my new monitor wide screen

Right Click on an open spot on your desktop.

If your Operating System is Windows XP, choose Properties from the menu box that pops up when you right click.

A new window will open up. Click the Settings tab at the top right.
On this menu you should see a slider bar near the bottom left under "Screen Resolution". Left Click and hold the mouse button on the grey button and move it on the slider bar over to the right one spot. Then click the Apply button on the bottom right of the box. The screen may flicker for a second and your desktop will change size. If the screen covers the whole monitor and the black bars are gone, that may be the correct resolution. Click OK on the box that has a timer and is asking if you want to keep the screen that size. If the screen does not look correct, click No and you may need to slide the button one more spot over and try the next resolution and Apply until it looks correct.

Under the slider bar as you move it over a line at a time will be 2 numbers like this 1024 X 800, and when you move the bar over the numbers will change. I believe the optimal resolution setting numbers for the 20" monitor you have should be 1680 X 1050 for the widescreen. You may want to try that setting. If it looks too small, try sliding the bar to the left and try each resolution setting.

Here's a screetshot of what the Box with the slider bar looks like:

If you have Windows Vista, (it is similiar to XP):

Click the Start Button and click Control Panel in the Start Menu
Click Appearance and Personalization in the new window that opens up.
Click Personalization, then click Display Settings at the bottom
A new box will pop up with the grey button on a slider bar near the bottom left under "Resolution" Slide the button to the right to the next line one spot over on the slider bar and then click the Apply button. The screen may flicker and change the size of your desktop. Click OK if the screen looks correct or click No if it doesn't look correct and try sliding the button over one more line.

Monitor is enlarged, wont return to normal size

Hi, three possible things. 1) You have activated the magnifier. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Accessibility, Magnifier - deactivate, should be a small window bottom left of the desktop. or 2) Your screen resolution somehow changed. Right click on any clear part of the desktop, go to properties, Settings Tab. Adjust screen resolution to desired setting then click Apply/OK. or 3)You are in Safemode. Restart and if same large icons etc, do # 2. Hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post how things turn up. Regards
