Go to device manager and look for display adapters uninstall it and when asked for a reboot please do so. alternately you can uninstall and reinstall the video driver if you are using an agp or pci express card..
if its still there let me know.. you might need to uninstall and reinstall the game as well, first do the above mentioned steps..let me know what happens

    go to device manager (rt click my computer-left click properties-than the hardware tab at the top and finally the devicemanager tab) over there look for display adapters, click on the + sign and uninstall the driver and reboot the system upon asking. if you are using an external video card you can also use the cd to uninstall and reinstall the driver..uninstalling and reinstalling the game would be another option but lets not do that rt now.. let me know what happens!!!

This happens to me sometimes. It sometimes depends how you shut down the game.(wheather you ctrl+alt+delete to get into task manager and exit of wheather you shut it down from an option inside the game.) If the screen refuses to return back to its original size, go into the screen settings(right-click anywhere on the desktop and thin click properties) where you are able to change resolution etc. and then just have ago at changing these settings. I hope you found this reply useful.
P.S, if u are running windows vista, after rifght clickign on the desktop click personalize then click "display settings" otherwise if you are running windows xp click on properties.

Compaq desk top screen to large


Right click your desktop and click resolution. Adjust it so that it is set to the maximum possible (native) and click apply. If you're talking about metro, you should be able to scroll scroll to reach the other icons. You can also adjust icon screen size if you go to the desktop, hold the control key and scroll using a wheel, or right click and change icon size.

Depends on which Windows version you have, unstated.

Right click on screen anywhere except other icons, go to "properties" and adjust screen res to max and also check under appearance that icons are "normal"

The font size on my HP Pavillion N5445 is too large. When checking the text size, it is already on smallest and is still too large.


Are all fonts too large or just icon fonts?

You could reset the screen to a higher resolution. Please note that everything will appear smaller including webpages and desktop icons.
Click Start\Settings\Control Panel
Then Click Display
When the box opens click Settings
When the new window opens you will see an adjustment called "Screen resolution" and a slider marked 'more' at one end and 'less' at the other.
Most modern monitors are set to 1024 by 768 pixels or above. Try moving your slider to a higher setting then click Apply\Ok
