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.

How to make my fonts smaller

Quick answer - not specifically to change font size, but to change whole screen size
The whole screen size can be magnified (zoom in) by simultaneously pressing CNTRL + ; the reverse operation (zoom out - what you want I think) is performed by CNTRL - (press cntl and + keys simultaneously)

Or change (increase) the resolution of the screen by right clicking a blank a blank area of the desktop and selecting 'screen resolution' in Windows 7 or in XP one the tabs similarly labeled, and increasing resolution if not at max already.

Can you restore my laptop screen to full size at the moment it is half size

Open up a web page on the top of the internet page you should see some tabs file edit view favourites tools and help click on the view tab on the drop down list you should see a zoom size % click a different percentage

also a text size you might try a different text size although this will not increase the size of the page only the text inside it

if you do not see these tabs in the top toolbar right click in the top toolbar you will see a number of toolbars and options select the menu tab this will add at it to the toolbar

right click in the top toolbar select the menu bar this will add the menu to the toolbar then select the view option then from the drop down list select full screen


Change the resolution of the screen to its maximum in cases where the screen size has been compromised due to selecting a non-native resolution.

To accomplish this, right click on the desktop and select the option to "Personalize."

From there, click on "Display Settings," then slide the resolution bar all the way to the right and press "Ok" to confirm your choice.

This should restore your screen to its proper size.

hope this helps

My vedio card is not desply my screen fully and his size is very small

You can adjust the screen size by changing the Screen Resolution.
Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - then change the Screen resolution, I suggest you start with a Screen resolution of 1024 X 768, if this does not suit then increase the screen resolution higher.

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.

The screen on my toshiba laptop is no longer full size. how di I get it back to fill the complete screen again

Right click on blank space on screen. Go to settings. Change resolution to another setting and see if that helps. Like if it is on 1040X1080 or whatever, change it to 600X800, See if that works.

Restore active desktop

As the icons have increased in size that means ur screen resolution has changed

Goto desktop
right click on desktop  >>  Properties  >>  settings tab 
now u will find the Screen Resolution adjust it according to ur requirement and u will find ur icon size small again  ( if u increase the screen resolution)

For internet settings Create a New Connection Wizard
or u can check from Network Connection whether ur Local Area Network is Enable or not.

Thank You

Sharp XR10X Screen size

depending on the age of your computer, some of the older video cards in XP only will allow you to show video in 600x800 resolution. When you want to show video go ahead and change both of your display properties (both the primary and the secondary) to 600x800. See if that works.

If that is not what you are refering to go right click on your desktop and look for the properties or settings of your graphics card. it may say graphics properties . In that area there will be tons of options like (when showing video only show it on the secondary monitor) play around with the different settings on your graphics card.
Good luck

Dell C840 Increasing resolution increase screen size and vice versa

Laptops when running in non native resolutions sometimes tend to use a small area, so that the bluring of text is not noticeable. The reason is that laptop text is only sharp in its native resolution, and in your case the possibility is that your native resolution is 1600x1200 (If you can post the exact model or a link with your machine configuration, I can confirm what the native resolution is).

However you can make the icons and text larger, the best way is to and change the font size in windows (display settings) from the normal to large or extra large. This makes all the fonts much larger and easy on the eye, and it also will keep the text large as you are still running it in native solution mode.
