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.

I have a toshiba theatreview and all of a sudden my full screen to a smaller suare within the full screen, can you help?

This is common and isn't a hardware problem. Your set has an automatic screen size adjustment enabled by default. This will sometimes result in very odd screen sizes and strange resolutions as it attempts to translate your picture into the most viewable format. The solution is to set your TV to it's native resolution of 720i, 720p, 1080i, etc manually to achieve proper side to side resolution. Unfortunately most cable providers and some satellite providers do not play well with all sets, so this adjustment is necessary to fix the problem.

Full screen


Press the F11 button to get full screen.
To return back to normal screen, press the F11 button again.

You can also hold down the CTRL key on the keyboard and Scroll down the scrolling button on the mouse.
To revert to normal , again hold the CTRL button on the keyboard and scroll upwards.

I just bought a new PC and the Vista on screen is very large I tryed to make it smaller but was not sucsessful can you help The monitor is a starlogic

The only way to change the 'size' of objects on the screen is tro play with screen resolution. On an empty place on your desktop, right-click then click on "Personalize". There are things in Display Settings, Screen Saver and Window Color and Appearance that can be used to modify how things fit together on your screen. Without more info on exactly what it is you want made smaller, this is intentionally vague.

When Playing Halo 3... The Screen Shrinks Down...

16:9 is the widescreen mode, the other size is 4:3 ratio which is what the game's native size, it is picture boxing by the plazma is showing the size as not to distort the image, to get the full screen picture, but make sure it's not the plazma's setting first - where it selects the size of the image, you may have the streched version on your normal play.

The 4700 has a 480 x 640 pixels display and WMP9 will not compensate for the smaller resolution videosthus the less than full screen size play back on video with less than the 480 x 640 pixels size resolution. There is a program that will play the smaller res. videos in full screen on your PDA try TCPMP its free, go here:
