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.

Adjusting pcoutput signal with windows xp


The only 'output signal' you are going to adjust is the video signal.
The only adjustment there is the Screen Resolution, and Screen Quality.

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the drop-down list.

In the Display Properties window left-click on the Settings tab.
In the middle of the window, and on the left side, is Screen resolution.

Move the Slider to the left to Decrease the resolution.
To the right to Increase the resolution.

(The Slider is the arrow that has a green tip on the top and bottom. Sits on the line in-between Lee and More.

Put your mouse cursor on it, press the left mouse button down, and hold it down.
Now drag the Slider back and forth, by moving the mouse left to right. Set it to the Screen resolution that you desire)

Color quality:
It should state - Highest (32 bit)
If not click on the blue down arrow to the right.
Then click on Highest (32 bit)

After you set the Screen resolution and/or the Color quality, be SURE to go below, and click on Apply.

Then click on OK.

The above not what you had in mind? Post back in a Comment.

I am using a MacBook with an Acer Monitor with a mini connection. The monitor shows the start up screen of the MAC but known of the icons nor does it reflect what is on the MacBook while I am working.


This is a very simple solution, fortunately. The default behavior of an external monitor connected to a portable Mac is to act as extra space, effectively extra screen "real estate," where you can move windows or do whatever else you need to.
Verify this by moving your mouse to the right-hand side of your screen, and then keep going - you'll see your mouse appear on the external monitor.

If you want to have the external monitor reflect exactly what you are doing on the primary monitor, simply go to Apple menu > system preferences > displays > arrangement and check 'mirror displays.'

And that's all there is to it!

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.

Zoomed moving display while mouse is moving


You have screen zoom turned on. If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel please hold down CTRL and move your mouse wheel down to return to original screen size.

If you need more help go into System Preferences> Keyboard and mouse> Mouse Tab and at the bottom it will tell you the settings for Zooming, if you don't need it I suggest you turn it off.

Hope that helps!

Yesterday, when I powered up my laptop, everything was all of a sudden enlarged ( the desktp, icons, internet, text, e-mails, EVERYTHING). I know this is probably supposed to be some kind of useful tool...


Hi,

Your enlarged desktop could be caused by several different things, so I will address each one in the order of likelihood of each one:

1. You may have accidentally changed your Display Settings.

Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. Scroll down and click on Display Settings. Ensure that your Monitor Resolution is set for the maximum. If not, use your mouse to move the slider bar all the way to the right.

2. You may have accidentally changed the size of text and icons.

Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About half way down the screen, select Make the computer easier to see. Click on Change the size of text and icons about half way down the screen. If it is not selected, chose the default scale.

3. You may have accidentally turned on the Magnifier.

Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About half way down the screen, select Make the computer easier to see. About half way down the screen, uncheck the Turn on Magnifier.

To turn off the On-Screen Keyboard on start-up,
right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About half way down, select Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard. Unselect Use On-Screen Keyboard.

To turn off the Narrator on start-up, right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About a third of the way down, select Use the computer without a display. Unselect Turn on Narrator.

I hope this helps. If so, please remember to rate my post.

Thanks!

Mouse cursor moving by itself


i have latitude c610 and same problem happens with me too. i think that happens when i finish my brakfat and without cleaning my hands start using the touch pad. what happens according to me is that small particles of food(eg bread/dust particles) stuck in the corners or the body wall where the touch pad ends and keeps pressing the touchpad, thus causing the mouse to move to one direction. when i clean the corners and sides of the touchpad, it starts working ok !!

thanks
