    Media Man, the entire screen is reduced to the middle of my laptop screen. So whatever is on the screen is not the full size of my laptop screen, everything just sits in the dead middle even when I attempt to resize it to "full".

    Is the display size itself smaller or does everything on the screen smaller (full screen)?

Can anyone identify this PC Wallpaper

that's probably that your wallpaper isn't fit with your monitor resolution,for example,if your wallpaper size is 1280x1024 but your screen resolution (size) is 1024x768,it doesn't fit your screen and the wallpaper will only show half or even less
to check your current resolution,click
Start->Control Panel->click Appearance and Personalization->Click "adjust screen resolution" on the Display categories
you can see your current resolution and also you can set your resolution
To check the picture resolution,right click on the picture,select properties,click the Summary tab,and it doesn't show the resolution, click Advanced on the Summary tab
But I suggest you to download the wallpaper with a fit size instead of changing the screen resolution,because too high resolution will make your screen goes black
geez,i'm so sorry for my poor english
please rate this solution if it's work and let me know if you still has a problem.and thanks for using Fixya!

I have deii inspiron pc. I need to adjust screen size so that it can be much bigger. what should i do!?

Right-click on a blank section of the screen and select Properties from the fly-out menu. Then click the settings tab and reset the screen size. If the screen size seems normal, then click the Appearance tab and reset the font size.

If the menu is too small to be readable, hold down the Ctrl key and repeatedly press the + button. This will change the screen magnification and you will then be able to scroll to the text you are trying to read to reset things.

My sreen resolution and font size is large i can't go back to the smallest size i tried going to my desktop properties but it still shows that the fonts and the screen resolution are in their smallest...

Not knowing the make & model of your laptop can only suggest you try to do a system restore. Assuming laptop is running Windows XP, do the following...
1. on the bottom left of the desktop, click on the start button
2. on the start window, hover cursor over All Programs
3. on the All Programs window, hover cursor over Accessories
4. on the Accessories window, hover cursor over System Tools
5. on the System Tools window, click on System Restore
6. on the System Restore window, click radio button to set to Restore my computer to an earlier time
7. then click on the Next button at the bottom of the System Restore window
8. on the Select a Restore Point window, click on a bold date prior to your mistaken uninstall date
9. with the bold date for the Restore Point selected, click on the Next button at the window's bottom
10. on the Confirm Restore Point Selection window, confirm your date by clicking the Next button.

Text size on screen too small

Have you tried this? In Internet Explorer, use View > Text Size to alter. Also, if you use a scroll mouse, it is possible for that to adjust your size (by holding down the Ctrl button while scrolling up or down).
