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.

Email pages in Yahoo are miimized size need to changed to maximized size.


You can't just change Yahoo, you must increase the font/text size for all web pages. This is done by selecting "My Computer" from the start menu and then from the next menu select "Appearance and Themes" and make the change to the text size.

Had to restore computer and now the text doesn't fit screen, how do I change it or make it smaller


Hi Mary,
If you are running Windows 7, you will go to the Personalize by right clicking on the desktop, then you can change any aspect of the desktop, i.e. desktop image, text, etc
If you are on XP, you can go to the "Display" in the Control Panel, then you can change the aspect of the text, usually it is the first thing you see there, make it "Normal". Here you can also change the Screen resolution, by making it larger to accommodate the text, usually 1024 by 768 is a good size. This may solve the problem altogether without changing text size.
Let me know how you make out, please rate and comment.
Thank you Joe

Text too small


You can increase the screen resolution by going to start/control panel/display and decrease the screen resolution; lowering the resolution makes the displayed items larger.
If you have window 7 you can increase the display by 125% or 150% from the same panel without changing the resolution.
If you are having trouble only with web pages, try holding the ctrl key and rotate your mouse wheel up or down (or use +,- keys if you don't have a wheel mouse) This trick should work on almost any web pages.

Depending on the browser you are using you could get smaller text just pressing Ctrl and - If you press Ctrl and + you get bigger text.

Print too small on computer screen


In the Menu bar, click View, then Text Size and select larger text.

You can also make a web page larger by pressing CTRL and + at the same time.

You can reset the monitor display in Control Panel, Appearance and Themes, Display, Settings. Adjust the screen resolution to match the shape and size of your monitor
