Hi,

Try out these things:-

(i) Change the resolution.

1) right click anywhere in the blank area on desktop and select properties.
2) select the settings tab on the top.
3) u can see the screen resolution at the bottom.
4) move the slider to 1024 x 768.. That should look better.

(ii) Right-Click on Desktop > Properties > Effects > uncheck Use large icons. Then click apply and finally OK

(iii) start/control panel/display/properties/appearance tab/advanced button/click on drop down arrow for 'item'/icon, then select numeric size 32.If you want he icons to be more smaller then decrease this value .Then click apply and finally OK.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day

Zoom on desktop


Try Right Clicking on a empty space on the desktop and select Properties. Click the Settings Tab and go change the screen resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons. Normal resolution is about 1024x768, but you can make the icons even smaller by increasing the resolution.

If you can't get into the screen resolution that way, turn off the computer and boot up into safe mode.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

When the computer boots up click Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings Control Panel and look for Desktop or Appearance and Personalization.
Look for Screen Resolution or open the desktop and click the Settings tab. Make the resolution higher to make the icons smaller. Normal is 1024x768 but you can make it higher.

In Windows 7 just click Start and in the search box type: Screen Resolution. Look up at the top for the returned search results and click on Screen Resolution. Go in and set the resolution higher.

After you change the resolution reboot and let windows go into it's normal boot up mode.

I successfully installed fsx but cant find the file to play it


Okay. Go to the FSX directory - C:\Program files\Microsoft games\FSX and locate the FSX.exe icon. Using the nouse, right-click the icon, and keep the right mouse button down and drag the icon to the desktop, then release it and choose "create shortcut here" from the fly-out menu. That's it. Then it will add an icon on your desktop which you can use aas normal to play it. Enjoy
