Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
1. Had some problems recently with my lap top. After I reset it and got it working again, it appears that all the text items on the screen are reduced in size down to about 6 pts. regardless of the particular application I am using, including the text portions of my emails. Any advise?
The action you took to fix your computer by resetting it has reset the screen resolution to what sounds like the XP default.
To adjust the screen resolution follow this set of instructions-
First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.
The display properties dialogue box will appear, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.
Changing the Resolution
To change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.
After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box, if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.
