Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

My ISP is comcast.net, and I have been connecting to their home page directly, by clicking the icon for Internet Explorer on my desk top. Recently, the home page for another entity, "alot," appeared, and I cannot delete or remove it. I go to Tools Internet Options, General, delete "alot" from the box for ISP home page, and type in "comcast,net," but cannot activate it because the box for "apply," or "O.K." is below the bottom of my monitor screen, even when I raise the dialogue box as high as possible with my mouse. HEEEEELP!!! Cecil

Hi,

Have you tried increasing the Screen Resolution to 1024 X 768? This could be done by right clicking on any clear area of your desktop, click on "Properties", click on "Settings" tab, move the Screen resolution slider till it shows 1024X768, Apply, OK. Should you be able to do this, then the "Apply" and "OK" buttons should now be visible. If for some reason you cannot set it to 1024X768, then 800 X 600 should also work albeit a little larger.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

CAN'T CONNECT TO THE INTERNET. DELL DEMENTIONS 1100 DESK TOP WINDOWS XP COMCAST SAID IT'S THE LAN ADAPTER.


You can download the LAN and device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

Icons and Internet page larger than normal/


Hi, this could be two things.(all directions are for windows 7 and IE 8)
First,right click on your desk top (not on an icon) a pop out will appear.Look for Personalize and left click that,this will open (Appearance and Personalization)Look to the left bottom you'll see (Display)left click.A new window opens look to the top left (Adjust resolution)left click.Now you want to look in the center of this new page you want (Resolution drop down) In this box you can select a new setting,try them all to find a good look for your self,don't worry if you set one to large to work with,by default it will switch back if you don't click anything after 15 seconds.
Now as for the internet page being to large.
There are a few ways to fix this,I'll list two.
Open Internet explorer and look to the botttom right you'll see a number and a percent sign(%)with a down arrow click that and pick a lower number done.
Option two,left click on the top area of any open IE window,now hold down the (Ctrl) button and tap the plus/minus (+/-) buttons.Doing this is the quickest way to enlarge or shrink IE.
Hope I've helped

When connected to the internet, my acer won't display anywebpages.


There is a difference of have your machine connected to the internet and you being connected to your network...If you are with Verizon, Comcast, or folks like that, give them a shout and they will take over your machine and connect you in no time. Besides that is what you are paying for when you pick your ISP (internet SERVICE provider)
Good luck my friend,

Somebody installed windows live on my computer i now have msn as my desk top i want to go back to google classic


Hi. I am assuming you are talking about the page that Internet Explorer goes to when you first open it. If that is the case, try this:

Windows Vista (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. Click the arrow to the right of the Home button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4aa01e82-2732-4ac7-b246-a06c904f2c2c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then click Add or Change home page.
In the Add or Change Home Page dialog box, do one of the following:
• To make the current webpage your only home page, click Use this webpage as your only home page.
• 4. To start a home page tab set or to add the current webpage to your set of home page tabs, click Add this webpage to your home page tabs.
• To replace your existing home page or home page tab set with the webpages you currently have open, click Use the current tab set as your home page. This option will only be available if you have more than one tab open in Internet Explorer.
5. Click Yes to save your changes.

Windows XP (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Programs or All Programs, and clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. On the pull-down menus at the top of the window, click the Tools menu and choose Internet Options (if the Tools is not showing at the top of the page, you can access it using the Tools pull-down menu located on the right side of the window).
4. To make the current webpage your home page, click the “Use Current” button.
5. Click OK to save your changes.

Hope this helps!
