There is an opion under conrol panel, accessibility options to zoom or enlarge fonts etc. for visually impaired people.. But also I guess there might be a hot key you have hit by accident, that zooms the desk top. What model of HP? Also right mouse click the desktop, click properties & check the 'appearance' settings.. There is an option for large icons & fonts. Maybe the HP hotkeys hook into that Windows option. Rgds,

How to change wallpaper on msi netbook


Which operating system ?

You can change your Windows 7 Desktop photo, also called wallpaper quickly and easily. If you like variety, you can alternate photos and settings on your computer display as well. It takes very little effort, time and computer knowledge to do change your Microsoft Windows Desktop appearance.

Bring up your Microsoft Windows 7 Desktop. Let all the software load completely. You will know it is done when all icons appear in your Windows task bar in the lower left hand corner. Right click (opposite of left click) once on a blank space on your Desktop where there are no icons. This will display a properties menu. Choose personalize from the menu that appears. Notice the different categories of wallpaper that appear. Choose the one you like best. Wallpapers are displayed as tiny icons but you can double-click to see a full image. Click a folder, such as pictures if you would like a picture or wallpaper from your own collection or the Internet. Windows 7 will save this background in your collection for future reference. Check the box that says change picture and choose amount of time you would like the wallpaper in Windows 7 to be displayed. This step is optional. Select picture position. Here you may have to experiment until you find one that fits your screen (resolution) the best. Choose what looks best for you, do not get caught up in the numbers or labels. Hope this helps.

Screen resolution is too big. Unable to correct.


The resolution is set too high, or the icons are too large? If the resolution is too high, the items appear smaller. If the resolution is too low, it gives a "zoomed in" appearance, and everything is much larger.

Has this issue been present since day one, or did it just begin?
What operating system do you have?
Do you have a dedicated (PCI, AGP, PCIe) video card, or are you using the one on your motherboard?

It sounds like you need to update or re-install the drivers for your videocard. They may have become corrupted, and are disallowing your resolution to be set to your desired spec. Many videocards will reset themselves to 800x600 if there is an error with the drivers, making everything seem much larger on the screen.

Icons appear on my wallpaper page that are of programs I wish to keep for reference, but do not want on my wallpaper


Open Explorer (right click on the start button), create a folder named Storage (or any name you like), then drag the icons into that folder.

Another method would be to right-click on the icon "send To" My Documents" or to a Compressed Folder.
