I have HP Laptop HPG60-445DX PC Windows 7. I need to change size of letters back to original size-I dont know how


Display in Windows 7 allows you to make the text and other items, such as icons, on your screen easier to see by making them larger. You can do this without changing the screen resolution of your display. This allows you to increase or decrease the size of text and other items on your screen while keeping your display set to its optimal resolution.

Let's see how to change Display in Windows 7:

1. Click the Start and then choose the Control Panel option.
2. Control Panel window opens up. Click Display.
3. Choose one of the following:

Smaller - 100%. This keeps text and other items at normal size.

Medium - 125%. This sets text and other items to 125% of normal size.

Larger - 150%. This sets text and other items to 150% of normal size. This option appears only if your monitor supports a resolution of at least 1200 x 900 pixels.
Make your choice and Click Apply.
To see the change, Click Log off now and then Login again.

How do I increase and set font size?


First, right click on your desktop and click on Personalize. Alternatively, you can go to Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization.


In the Personalization window, go to the left pane and click on Adjust font size (DPI).


If UAC is turned on you will need to make an additional confirmation so that the DPI Scaling window will launch. You can choose the default scale of 96 DPI or a larger one of 120 DPI, which makes the text more readable. If these two options are not enough you can click on the Custom DPI button and choose another size (DPI).


In the Custom DPI Setting window you can select the desired percentage for the DPI increase. You have the following options: 100% for the normal size of 96 DPI, 125% for 120 DPI, 150% for 144 DPI and 200% for 192 DPI.


If you set the DPI higher than 96, and you are running Windows Aero, the text and other items on the screen might appear blurry in some programs that are not designed for high-DPI display in Windows Vistamag-glass_10x10.gif. You can avoid this issue by using Windows XP style DPI scaling. Just check the appropriate option and press on OK.


The change can be applied only after a system restart. Close all the running applications, save your open documents and then press on Restart Now. After a reboot, the font size will be changed.

You can increase the size of text by pressing control + or - buttons press control button first. Also there is zoom in the tools section and also you can increase the size of text in the control panel or the web page under tools sections of most browsers. If we new the browser or what you text is small in or even if it was small every where you can change the resolution size of your Windows. Win 7 you can incease text by going to control panel click on display once there go to where it says increase your text size. Not sure what your operating system is either. So assuming it is Win 7 I hope that this assists you. John

If you want to make font and text larger in a Word document, just look at the taskbar and click font pull-down window (usually the default is Times Roman) and pick whatever font you want, then click the pull-down window (usually the default is 12) and pick a larger size.
Or you need to make a display adjustment. Click Start, Click Control Panel, Click Personalization, click Display Settings, choose Resolution up or down which will adjust icon and font size on your computer.

    How to increase text size when running laptop and % icon does not show in lower right right hand corner of screen


    To change the text size you will need to right click on a blank part of the screen/desktop so you get display properties or click start then settings then control panel then display. When you get that window up you can click on the appearance tab along the top. In this window along the lower left is font size. You can increase the size of the font by clicking on the box then selecting the size you want. This will change the size of the font as soon as you click on apply. This only changes menu text sizes.

    To change everything overall you want to click on the settings tab then the advanced button lower right. It should come up to the window we want but if not it is under the general tab. Under DPI settings (sometimes will show as text size or font size but all are the same setting) the default is set to 96 try selecting the 120 size. This will increase the size of the text used. You can also select custom and enter any number. You will probably have to reboot the computer after changing this unless you have it in the section below to apply without restarting. Hit apply and reboot if required and your text will now all be bigger. If the text is too much bigger than stock some programs or windows may not look right or the text is not aligned. Thats typical if the text is too big or the window it is in is a fixed size and can't change. If this happen you can try the custom setting to find a bigger size that won't cause problems.

    You can also use the visually impaired utilities one of which is a magnifier. That just enlarges an area around the mouse so it isn't quite as easy for daily use.

    I'm stumped on the % icon thing. What normally is there is the clock. Unless this is a icon that shows battery charge or something like that? You can usually get these to display again by starting the utility from the start menu - all programs and then look for a setting that says display on toolbar.

    Printing from windows


    as i understand, DPL will works if you are using a serial comunication. When you say "using Generic Text Driver" i can see you are trying to print snce parallel port, as any other prnter. If that is the case, you can forget the DPL. Install an apropiated DATAMAX printer driver, and print from Wordpad.
