The reason why everything is too small is because you can now see your screen on a wider/bigger view of the graphics (it's like looking down from a tall building or looking down from an airplane. The difference is that looking at your screen is not that far. The Resolution is higher than before, graphics, pictures/images, video games, movies are all displayed fine. Having a high resolution screen is a GOOD THING! If you are not comfortable with this kind of high resolution then you can switch back to lower resolution but of course the consequences would be other softwares/programs may not work. It's just your personal perception.

How do I increase my font size in everything. To keep parmently


There is no system font size adjustment per say, But you can change the "resolution" of the screen to make everything on the screen bigger. Go into your Applications folder>System Preferences>Display>and there click on the tab named "Display">click on the button "Scaled". You now have a list of availble screen resolutions for your display, and can select a "lower" resolution down the list to enlarge your screen images.

Open control panel and go to display. You can reset the screen resolution there if your monitor will accept it and your display card will generate it.

My on screen display has gone small


What do you mean has gone small? You mean your icons are smaller?

Try changing your screen resolution. Right Click on an open space on the desktop and select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens select the Appearance tab. Look down at the bottom and you can make sure your Font Size is Normal, if not change it to Normal. Click the Settings tab and change your screen resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons. Size 1024x768 is what most people use.

You can also get to the display properties to perform the steps above by clicking Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel. Look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open it and the display properties window will open.

If you are using Windows 7 you can also just click Start and in the search box type Screen Resolution. Look up at the top for the search results and click on Screen Resolution.

If you can't get it back to the way it was you can try doing a System Restore. System Restore allows you to select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. So if you display went small yesterday, then select a restore point before yesterday.

System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected). To start System Restore click Start/Program/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore then select a data and time before you started having the issue.

If you are using Windows 7 you can just click Start then in the search box type System Restore and look up at the returned search results and select System Restore.

System Recovery on the other hand deletes everything and sets your system back to when your first purchased it.

Change your screen resolution on the Display in the Control Panel.

Click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization (depending on your operating system). When the Display opens increase the Screen Resolution. The resolution will be under the Settings Tab on the Display. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and things will be on the screen, therefore you'll see more.

My writing is so small i can't read any thing on my computer because of this i can't read anthing you write back so can someone call me at 901-283-0239


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

Screen resolution change = black border around small screen


Once you change the resolution to a smaller size and you see the black border, go into the monitor's menu and there should be settings for the Horizontal and Vertical size/position. Adjust those until it looks correct.

I hope this helps :)

Words on screen are way too small


Hi,
If its a on-line problem with web pages just hold the Ctrl key in and use the plus and minus keys to change the font size.
If the problem is in general you will need to change the screen resolution, to change the screen resolution go to the control panel, select display and change the resolution there.



Regards.

Dell C840 Increasing resolution increase screen size and vice versa


Laptops when running in non native resolutions sometimes tend to use a small area, so that the bluring of text is not noticeable. The reason is that laptop text is only sharp in its native resolution, and in your case the possibility is that your native resolution is 1600x1200 (If you can post the exact model or a link with your machine configuration, I can confirm what the native resolution is).

However you can make the icons and text larger, the best way is to and change the font size in windows (display settings) from the normal to large or extra large. This makes all the fonts much larger and easy on the eye, and it also will keep the text large as you are still running it in native solution mode.
