Test not showing when typing an email

Did you set the "font-colour" and the "background-colour" to be identical?

If you use Microsoft Word (or Notepad or Wordpad) to type in some text, and then select that text, and copy it to the clipboard, and then "paste" it into the "body" of the E-mail window, does that text show up?

Recreate the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar

To re-create the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch
toolbar, follow these steps....

1. Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create a
file with the following lines:
2. Save the new file as a file named Show Desktop.scf
in the WindowsSystem or WinntSystem32 folder. Note
that Notepad may automatically append a .txt extension
to the file name. Remove this extension if Notepad
adds it. These steps do not work if the file is named
Show Desktop.scf.txt.
3. Quit Notepad.
4. Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click
the Show Desktop .scf file, and then click Create
5. Copy the new shortcut to the appropriate folder. In
Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98, copy the shortcut
to this folder: WindowsApplication DataMicrosoftInternet
ExplorerQuick Launch

In Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000,
copy the shortcut to this folder: WinNTSystem32
In Microsoft Windows XP, copy the shortcut to the
following folder: WINDOWSSystem32ConfigSystemprofileApplication
DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch

6. Rename the shortcut to Desktop.
The Show Desktop icon automatically appears on the
Quick Launch toolbar.

Text too small

This can be changed from display settings if you are talking about the text on the desktop ..Just click right on the desktop ..choose properties and select the last in the right ...settings you can select a smaller resolution ..(best for 17 inc is 10024 /768 )and click apply and OK ..
if you do not want to change the resolution but need larger icons and text ..just select on the same window advanced..and you will have the possibility to increase the icon and text size with the percent you want ...After that click apply and OK to exit ..It may ask to restart for to apply the changes..
if you are talking about the writing in the can zoom it by changing resolution ..or by pressing down the ctrl button and scroll up or down ..
Also all text size can be selected manually for each location if you click right on desktop and in the window select appearance (second in the right 0 and advanced..This advanced feature will allow you to select the size color and font size for each item by one between them ..for title and menu bars..etc.
But , I suggest not to mess with that ..cause you may not be able to manage it well ..just engage a smaller resolution and will solve the issue for the writing .
