To change the resolution on your screen / monitor, follow the instructions below : -

1. With no programs or windows open, press on the right-hand button of your computer mouse. A menu will appear.
2. Click on Properties, and another window will appear entitled Display Properties.
3. Click on the word Settings at top right.
4. The window will change. Look for a box entitled " Screen area or resolution", with words Less on the left and More on the right of a sliding scale. Beneath this you will see the present setting, i.e.1024 by 768 pixels. Using the left button of your mouse, click just to the left of the downward pointing arrow and the resolution will change. Set it to 800 x 600 pixels.
5. Now comes the scary part, so do not panic. Click on OK.
6. A small window will open, again called Display Properties, with the message that Windows will now resize your Desktop. Click on OK and the screen will go black (remember do not panic). After a few moments your Desktop will reappear with the icons etc looking much bigger. (If your computer operating system is XP you finish here) If you are using an old operating system like Windows 98, the same Display Properties will be showing, overlain by a small window entitled You resized your Desktop. Do you want to keep these setting?
7. Click on YES and the screen will go black again for few moments (remember do not panic).

You have now resized your screen / monitor settings. To revert to your original settings just follow the procedure above changing the pixels size to what you want.

Take care.

    If you are using Internet Explorer as your
    web browser, you can in many
    websites that you visit, increase or decrease the size in which
    text is displayed
    on your computer screen / monitor. However sometimes if the text
    contained within a "Text Box" on the screen, which will be
    invisible to you, changing the size of the text can cause
    lines or sentences to warp or get out of line. The webpages on
    website are composed using the text size as "Normal". To
    change your text size if distortion is occurring, follow the
    below :-

    1. With Internet Explorer open, click on the word
    "View" at the top of the page, third word from the left.

    2. A menu will drop down. Using your mouse click on
    "Text size", the seventh word down.

    3. An other menu will open to the right. Click on the
    word "Normal", which will position a small black dot next to
    it, meaning that normal text size is selected.

    You have resized your Internet Explorer text size settings. You
    change them again, when you have read the webpage, if you wish
    using the
    same procedures. please rate the solution if helpful.

    Take care.

The problem statement is not very specific, but it sounds as if your display resolution has been changed.
Right-click on the desktop, view the display properties, and change your screen resolution to a higher resolution.

You can go into the control panel and click on the display icon. From there choose screen resolution and lower the number on the bar. Save the changes. This should make the screen and fonts a bigger so that you can read it.

,hi, I have a slight problem with the desktop.The desktop became bigger than the screen.I tried to put it back many times and could not.

I think what you have done is accidently magnified your screen slightly. To correct this hold down your ctrl key and move your finger on the mousescroll button back. Hope this helps.

It is because your computer resolution has been changed. Change the resolution from Right Click Anywhere in desktop click properties take settings there you can see screen resolution make it less (800by600) or (1024by768)
