I have accidentally made the screen resolution bigger, have tried changing it in "adjust font size dpi" but can't get the cursor to reach the apply button. So I can't restore the screen to the right size

Hitting enter will do it. If you can't see the next dialog box, which asks if you want to keep the settings: Hit the tab button once and then hit enter.

Hi, Chrissieg!

Try keyboard shortcuts instead. When it's time to press Apply button press ALT key + A then Enter to execute Apply button

or

just press Enter to execute OK button.
It will have the same result.

Remember how desktop looked like in XP with 800x600 resolution? Everything was big - fonts, icons, browser, documents... Now have Win7 with 1920x1080 resolution. It used to be fine, then another user


Everywhere? If you change DPI, you change the appearance of everything everywhere. (The Home edition of Windows 7 does not contain "Personalize.") Only a change in DPI will affect the appearance of everything.

But without changing DPI, you can do the following.
Right click on a blank area on the desktop and choose screen resolution. Click Make text and other items larger or smaller. You have some choices in the radio buttons or you can try a custom setting. These won't affect images but will affect icon and text appearance size.

Here are a few other things you can tinker with to get a view you like.

1) In the procedure you have described, when you get to ITEM,, choose more of the selection from the drop down list, then reboot.
OR, 2) Click on an open area in a web page. Hold the Control button down, roll the scroll wheel atop your mouse. 3) in the RUN box of Windows 7, type cttune and hit enter. Walk through this ClearTypeTuner procedure and you can at least have an easy go at adjusting readability to your liking. If you change your mind, you can always change the settings back. It does allow you to see how the font would look. --I have not mentioned the Magnifier option...

In brief, your monitor probably came with its best resolution set up. But you can use the "tricks" above to alter the appearance of sizes. You just may find readability diminishes.

Normal size for dpi


DPI, or "font size" is variable, depending on your monitor's native resolution, The resolution you have selected for it in Windows (Desktop-->Properties[right-click]-->Display Properties-->Settings), and what program you are currently using (browsers can be "zoomed").

I would try adjusting your monitor resokution first, before changing display font size. Try this page for some help with XP: http://www.andybrain.com/qna/2008/02/09/how-to-change-the-font-size-in-windows-xp/

This page for help in Win7: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/443-dpi-display-size-settings-change.html

There really is no such thing as "normal" DPI font size. Most people with decent eyes would probably use 96 as a standard.

My font size is too small


There are a few different ways you may be able to increase font size. One is, if you have a "zoom" button on your keyboard with + and -, you may be able to use this by itself or by pressing "Ctrl" simultainiously with it. Another way is if you have a tool icon, upper right of your screen, may look like a gear, click on that and see if you have a zoom option there. You can also adjust you DPI, by clicking "start", lower left of screen, then on "control panel". In your list(icon), find and right click on "personalization". At the upper left of screen you will see "adjust DPI..". Click on that and you will see "larger DPI" amd a custom DPI tab. You can click on the box for larger DPI or can custom adjust your size by clicking the tab. Pick the size you want and click on apply, then restart system. Using the zoom you can adjust up or down at will, changing the DPI will increase size but, the only way to adjust will be to coinside with the zoom or by physically going back to personalization and changing it.

Change size of fomts


There are a couple of different ways to do this. If you have a "zoom" button on your keyboard with +(larger) and -(smaller) you can use that, you may have to hols down "Alt" for this to work. If you have a tools icon, might look like a gear, at the top right of your screen, click on that, and if you see "zoom", click on that and choose your font size. You can also try clicking on "start" at the lower left of your screen, then on "control panel". In your list(icons), find "personalization" right click on, and open. At the top left of screen, you will see "adjust font size(DPI). Click on that and you will see "larger font size" with an empty white circle on the left. Click on the empty circle, then restart for it to take effect. You can also do a custom DPI in that same window. Make sure you restart after each change of font size. If you figured out your zoom, you can adjust font size whenever you want.

Need larger typeface for easier reading on monitor


there are a couple of ways you can get larger font. On your keyboard you may have a "zoom" button with a +(larger) and -(smaller), where you can adjust your font up and down as necessary. If you have a tools icon at the top right of your screen, might look like a gear, click on that and see if there is "zoom" in there, click on that and click on font size you need, again you can adjust up and down as required. You can also click on "start", lower left of your screen, find "control panel" and click on that. In your list(icons) you should see "adjust font size(DPI) at upper left of your screen. Click on that and then click on continue. You should see "larger font size" with a empty circle on the left. Click on the empty circle to select, or, you may want to click on "custom DPI"(lower right) to do a custom size. I recommend going with the first option and resatrt for it to take effect. If this is not the size you want, you can then try the custom DPI. Make sure you restart after each change of font size. If you figured out you zoom, you can now still adjust the size there also.
