- Hold Alt button, while pressing Tab - this will bring up all applications that are running - you can select the desktop.
- press Alt and F3 buttons together - this will close the application that is running in full screen.
Hello, you can make the display larger by pressing and holding down the Control button (usually marked Ctrl ) and pressing the '+' button. Make it smaller by holding Ctrl and pressing down the minus button ( - ) Alternatively, you can alter the resolution by right-clicking on the desktop, selecting 'properties' , then 'settings' and then altering the adjusting the 'screen resolution' ; less resolution, bigger the font.
