How to change view size in windows 8


You can change the view size in Windows 8 in the following ways:
1) By changing the size of text and other items on the desktop
You can change the size of text and other items (like icons) on your desktop without disturbing your current screen resolution settings. To do this, follow the steps mentioned ahead:a)Open Screen Resolution by swiping in from the right edge of the screen, tapping "Search" (or if you're using a mouse, pointing to the upper-right corner of the screen, moving the mouse pointer down, and then clicking "Search"), enter "Make text larger" in the search box, and then tapping or clicking "Make text and other items larger or smaller".
b) Drag the slider until the items in the preview image are the size you want them to be.
c) Tap or click "Apply".
You'll see the change the next time you sign in to Windows.
Also, you can change the text size for specific items (such as Window title bars or tooltips) without affecting the size of anything else on your desktop. Follow these steps to do this:
a) Open Screen Resolution by swiping in from the right edge of the screen, tapping "Search" (or if you're using a mouse, pointing to the upper-right corner of the screen, moving the mouse pointer down, and then clicking "Search"), entering "Make text larger" in the search box, and then tapping or clicking "Make text and other items larger or smaller".
b) Under "Change only the text size", choose the item you'd like to change and pick a text size. If you want the text to be bold, select the "Bold" check box.
c) Tap or click "Apply".
You'll see the change the next time you sign in to Windows.

a) Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap "Settings", and then tap "Change PC settings" (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click "Settings", and then click "Change PC settings").

I have just connected a quill mouse to my laptop. Right and left clicks work but you can't move the pointer.


I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7

in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar
click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver

click on >> control panel all control panel items mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have the options update driver rollback driver or uninstall in xp

in windows 7 click start control panel hardware and sound mouse you will see the same tabs and options as with xp

hope this helps

Cursor jumps all over the place. My husband is ready to throw the computer away.


See if you are using Enhance pointer precision,if so try and turn it off. Click Start, click Run, type control mouse, and then click OK. Click the Pointer Options tab, click to clear the "Enhance pointer precision" check box,click Apply and OK. If you are using a wireless mouse try changing the battery.You can also go to the mouse control in the control panel.Uncheck the options to "automatically move pointer to default button". Also check the sesitivity of your touch pad , if it set to a high sensitivity and you barely touch it , it could register as a double click.
