You can increase resolution on your computer by resetting all of the computer defaults on your screen. There is one button that will open a menu that you can reset to the factory settings. If this dosn't help tell me and I will go to more advanced techniques.

All The Best,

Will lotus 123 load from a cd on windows 8


you have to create a batch file to run Lotus 1-2-3, and (so far as I can tell) you have to run the program from your root drive, because the program makes its calls TO the root drive. Here's the batch program you create in Notepad or other plain-text editor:

cd\
cd\lotus
123.exe
cd\
exit

* Delete the 'exit' if you want the window to stay open as a DOS window, after you're done with the program. Save the file with a '.bat' extension. (Note: unlike XP, you can close the window with your mouse, afterwards.)

* After creating that file, you have to right click on the file name, select 'Properties (in Win8, Vista, XP) and do some more tweaking. The Properties dialogue box SHOULD show the following tabs: General, Shortcut, Options, Font, Layout, Colors, Compatibility. Each of these needs editing.

GENERAL tab: select Normal Window or even Maximized (though it won't actually maximize). Also in Win8, click on Advanced, and 'Run as administrator'.
OPTIONS tab: select Large cursor. You can always change it, but since the program really won't run fullscreen, you'll want the cursor to be oversized, since the window will be smaller and will shrink everything in it.
FONT tab: this is what Windows uses to select the screen size, despite all the other settings (which you also still need to set). In Win7, you have three types of fonts to set. Click on the 'Bold' option, as that makes the text easier to read.
For True Type 'Consolas' font (which results in a more square window), pick a font size between 18 and 24. More than that will be bigger than your entire monitor screen, when you actually run the program (looks are deceiving, you have to test the results with trial and error).
For True Type Lucida Console font, use the same 18-24 font size range, but the screen will be much shallower and wider, so you can afford to decrease font size to 18-20. 28 is really too wide, on a widescreen monitor (1366x768 pixels). But maybe you'll like it, or your monitor will accommodate that size. Mine wouldn't.

For Raster fonts, 12 x 16 is the optimal setting. ON some (i.e., Dell Ultrasharp) monitors, Raster fonts look best. On my Toshiba 19L4200U TV monitor, the Lucida Consule setting is clearest.
LAYOUT tab: Pick a window size width no greater than 85, and height no greater than 38. Then test to see if it's too big. If yes, you'll also need to decrease font size, as well as the Layout size, here. Experiment, because you can't gauge the right mix of window and font size, just by the diagrams in the dialogue box.

COLORS tab: Lotus 1-2-3 makes hardware calls on the screen, so whatever you put in this tab, it will ignore. But other DOS programs might 'obey' the colors you set here. If you remember the old Norton Utilities days of setting Mode, etc., that's what this is.

COMPATIBILITY tab: You can't set resolution to override at 640x480. The setting is either ignored, or your monitor will freak out. For Lotus 1-2-3, in Win 8 I didn't need to turn on the 'compatibility mode'. It made no difference in the results. (You don't need it in XP, either.)
* Finally, you have to find the program itself, then right-click on the program name and edit its Properties. Here, that program is 123.exe, and it has to be in your root directory. (All the program files Lotus will use, must be there; at least one wk1 file must be in C:\123 at startup. I'm sure this can be tweaked, but I'm using the default Lotus program settings for a typical installation.)

How do i change the font to a bigger size on the kitchen terminal.


One solution for it is editing the Font Size for each PLU menu, it means you have to edit one by one using Capital and the DBL option in your keyboard.

How can I make the letters in the words bigger? as I have a hard time reading my statements?


Internet Explorer Version 8 has a built-in "magnifier".
Look at the bottom-right of IE's window, for a magnifying-glass, a '100%' label, and a small black-coloured triangle.

Click the triangle to pick a larger value.

I WANT TO PRINT OUT MY CAR NUMBER PLATE TO PUT TEMPORARILY ON MY TRAILER SO THAT i CAN TRANSPORT THE KIDS BIKES. i HAVE A HP PHOTOSMART PRINTER. tHE SIZE 72 FONT ON MY COMPUTER IS STILL NOT LARGE ENOUGH...


Sure, the 72 size font is the largest font listed in Microsoft Word's dropdown list, however you can highlight the 72 font and type in 144, for example, to get a bigger font size.

Can't read code


hi, hope this helps:
If all the text appears garbled or as question marks, then Microsoft Word may not have accurately detected the encoding standard of text in the file. As a result, Word may have used the wrong encoding standard.
To have Word use an encoding standard you select:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the General tab.
  2. Select the Confirm conversion at Open check box.
  3. Close and then reopen the encoded file.
  4. In the Convert File dialog box, select Encoded Text.
  5. In the File Conversion dialog box, select Other encoding, and then select the encoding standard you want from the list.You can preview the text in the Preview area to check whether it makes sense in the encoding standard you selected.
If almost all the text looks the same (for example, all boxes or all dots), the required font may not be installed. You can install additional fonts by running the Microsoft Office Setup program again. On the Advanced Customization screen in the Setup program, expand Office Shared Features, and then expand International Support. Select the font you need, click the arrow next to your selection, and then click Run from My Computer.
