How to decrease size display on Windows 7


First, make sure you have the recommended resolution by doing a right mouse click anywhere on the desktop and choosing "Screen Resolution". Look for "Resolution" then adjust the slider to the recommended one. Also, below that is a blue text that says "Make text and other items smaller or larger" click that and adjust the settings on the window that will appear.

Changing the screen size on an Acer computer, whether it is a laptop computer or a desktop computer, is a simple task.
You can adjust the screen size to be larger or smaller.
If your eyes hurt from concentrating on tiny letters all the time, you should make the screen smaller.
If you have to scroll left and right to read sentences in a document on your computer, you should make the screen larger, at least to the point where you do not have to scroll left and right to view the entire window.

Go to the desktop of your computer and right-click the screen.
Click the last option, which is "Properties."
The "Display Properties" window will now show up.
Click the "Settings" tab in the "Display Properties."
Adjust the meter under "Screen Resolution."
When you move the meter to the left, the screen becomes smaller.
If you move the meter to the right, the screen becomes larger.
Click "Apply" to save the settings once you are finished adjusting the screen resolution.

Why is it that when certain laptops are connected to a projector the display on the screen from the projector is smaller??? i find i have this problem often especially with the series of smaller laptops...


Try going to your "Control Panel" in the start menu. In the right column under "Appearance and Personalization" choose "Adjust screen resolution". From there choose a larger resolution size, preferably with the same ratio as your projection screen!

There are three size settings you can choose from, Normal, Wide and Zoom. Try changing it using the 'Size' button on the remote or by going into the On Screen Display (OSD) settings. If you don't have a manual you can get one here. Hope this helps.
