Right click on the desktop and select "properties"
this will open the display properties window, click on the settings tab and change the screen resolution to more. you may need to test a few different settings till you find the one you like.

I am assuming you have windows

thanks for rating

How to reset a MacBook Pro loading screen size


Hold down the "control" button on your keyboard and scroll up on your trackpad at the same time.
Additionally, to deactivate this feature (so you don't accidentally zoom again) go to "system preferences" then click on "accessibility" then "zoom" on the left, then uncheck the box beside "use scroll gesture with modifier keys to zoom."

My screen of computer is so big the contents are enlarged my kid has pressed some buttons pls help


Hi nayyarshelly,

I like to help you regarding your concern having big Icons on your desktop, you mentioned that your kid accidentally pressed something on the machine that made everything big, See steps below to changes the Icons or your systems desktop settings.

  • First the system should be turned ON and logged in to Windows, I am assuming that you have Windows7 on your computer.
  • On the keyboard Hold down the CTRL button while holding down the CTRL key on the mouse scroll, scroll backwards this should make things smaller again.
  • If the screen on the Internet is also big do the same thing while your Internet Explorer is open this should change the size of the text / pictures anything on the Internet explorer.
  • But if the above does a different function from what you are experiencing then I believe that you are experiencing some changes in the resolution of the screen if everything is Enlarged.
  • Click on Start then on the search bar type in display, a list will show look for Display then click on it to open up the Display window then click on Adjust resolution.
  • The resolution on your screen depends on how big the LCD screen is
  • On the Resolution page you can pretty much check each resolution on the list that will be better to you, then click on Apply lower right then OK to apply settings on this page.
I hope that this will be of help regarding your concern.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

Screen lights up and goes back off with power still on. Ex.: When powering up computer, screen will show page for a few seconds then disappear untill a differant page comes up, show new page for a few...


Hi Larry,

I see that you are having issues with you LCD monitor intermittently showing Video for a few seconds then just dies to a black screen and will show windows in the desktop then go back to a black screen again on the issue ...

I believe that what you are experiencing on the issue is a screen refresh rate setting in windows.

we will need to check you video settings on the system for the issue.

Before we go and change some settings on your system we will need to boot into safe mode first.

1. From Shut down as soon as you turn your system on keep on tapping the F8 key on-top of your keyboard, this will give you the Windows Advance Options Menu.

2. On the List Select Safemode once highlighted press enter once, a bunch o things will show up on the screen this means that windows is loading in Safemode and windows will be loaded but all drivers will not so may encounter a screen that has big Icons and letters on it which is normal.

3. Log-in you windows profile if you have a password setup, once logged in do the following instructions below.

Changing the Screen Refresh rate:

1. Right Click on your Desktop/wallpaper to get the pop up options menu, click on personalize.

2. In the personalize window click on display lower left side of the window

3. Then Upper Left side of the new window click on Change Display setting then on the next page lower right side you will see Advance settings click on it.

4. you will get a small window click on the monitor TAB you will see there a drop down for the Screen Refresh rate click on the drop down and select 59 Hrtz, then Click on Apply then OK to save the settings work on your monitor.

Everything works except for mp3 when i plug it in. doesnt even say aux on screen


Just figured this out !
1) You have to be in 'Standby' mode - press (SRC) until it shows standby.
2). Press and hold 'Menu' button.
3). Using the joystick - move it left or right until it shows 'AUX' 'OFF'.
4). Move joystick up or down until it shows 'AUX ON1'.

It should now work ! - This is on P.22 of the manual - but it actually starts on page 19 where it describes 'Standby' mode.

Netbook pages to large


Try right clicking away from the icons in a blank part of the desktop in the menu left click "properties", this should take you to the familiar Windows display properties panel, click the settings tab and down and to the left you will see screen resolution my nett book works best with 1024 by 600 depending on where you are in the world it might be 1024 by 768. You shouldn't get into trouble here because normally after clicking the apply button it will show you the new screen and after 15 seconds go gack to the previous, if it is what you want click OK to keep the new setting. Good luck John

Everything on screen big


Two ways...
1. Hold down "control" and press either '-' to make smaller or '+' to make it larger. This is a temporary setting and will revert when you exit the application.
2. Right click on a clear are of your desktop and choose 'properties'-> 'settings'. On the left side of this dialogue box is a slider adjuster which you can use to adjust the screen resolution to your requirements.

How do you print at 50% w/ an 5610 all in one


I am taking you literally in as much as you did not say "copy at 50%" which is done through the 5610's front control panel.

To print at 50% you use the browser printer settings.

Firefox:
1. Go the the "File" drop down (upper left)
2. Go down to the "Print Preview" selection... a preview screen will then be displayed.
3. Look to the top right part of the screen to find the "Scale" field and set this to 50%. The page will repaint to show you the new print size.
5. Hit print

Internet Explorer:
1. Go the the "File" drop down (upper left)
2. Go down to the "Print Preview" selection... a preview screen will then be displayed.
3. Look along the top-right of the screen for a drop-down field that may say "Shrink to Fit" or a percentage. click this and set it to 50%. The page will repaint with your new setting.
4. Hit the printer icon in the upper left to print.

Hope this helps. Best of luck - Dan
