Question about Computers & Internet

My screen appears to be 'zoomed in' note that this is not a resolution issue nor is it just a web browser page that i have zoomed in on using the mouse wheel. My screen was zoomed when the log in screen for windows booted up and if i move my mouse to the extreme edges of my screen it allows me to pan across to see the rest of my desktop etc. current and recommended resolution is 1680x1050.

This sounds as if you have the magnifier on if you are using Windows. What the magnifier does is just what you are describing. It zooms in on part of the screen and lets you pan around the screen when you move the mouse to the edge. Unfortunately, I do not know which version you have. If you have XP, you can view this webpage for specific instructions: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/accessibility/magnifierturnon.mspx.
If you have another version, to change it, click on Start Menu>Programs>Accessories>Ease of Access. It should be found there. Once you open it, you should be able to turn it off and go back a normal screen.
I hope this solves your problem. Let me know if it does not.

Web pages and programs are to large


Two possibilities: your pc's resolution is not high enough (which means you need to go to the desktop, right click anywhere in the blank area, select screen resolution, and change it to something higher) or, your browser is "zoomed". Hit ALT (the alt key) + V (for view) go to Zoom and lower the zoom factor.

I suspect the second is the problem as it's easy to zoom (ctrl+ and ctrl- will do it too).

How do i change the zoom levels of my computer


If you are talking about a internet browser usually it's Ctrl + to zoom in or Ctrl - to zoom out

If you are talking about screen resolution than:

1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.

2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.
FILE > PRINT PREVIEW Prior to printing, got to the print preview screen. There will be a window of the print there and as/if you chance any settings, the print preview window will show (exactly) what the printed page will look like.

FILE > PRINT OPTIONS There you can set the header and footer margins. If nessassary.

My screen is too zoomed in when I try to view


You can try scrolling down the mouse wheel while holding the Ctrl key on your keyboard.

If you want to decrease the text size on a web page you can go to: View > and reduce the text size in Internet explorer (In firefox and other browsers you can go to View and use the Zoom option)

Please let me know if this helps you.

Your comments and ratings are highly appreciated.

What is the best setting on adell 24


The issue is relative to the native resolution of the monitor. in most 24" monitors the resolution is 1920 x 1200. When you get an application that is shown in the upper left corner of the screen, it is most likely set in a page frame of 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768. Also many web pages will display with large amounts of white space on one or both sides.
This you can do to help.
Set the DPI setting in display properties to 120 will help some making small type more readable.
Pages that are in Internet Explorer can be zoomed to appear larger zoom feature in bottom right corner of IE window (or CTRL & + and CTRL & - key combinations)

Browser Enlarged


If part of the web page is not visible on the screen, you may have accidentally dragged it off to the side. Click the green button at the top-left corner of the web page to resize the window to fit on the screen.
If your screen resolution is set to 800 x 600 or less, most web pages won't fit on the screen. If possible, increase resolution to at least 1024 x 768 in System Preferences > Displays.
You may have accidentally hit Command (Apple key) and the plus sign (+) key -- this makes the text bigger. To reduce text size, hit Command and hyphen (-) key.
Finally, if Zoom is turned on in the Universal Access setting, you be looking at only part of the screen -- zoomed in like using a magnifying glass. Hold down Command (Apple key) and ALT key and hyphen (-) to see if this is on -- it will unzoom (zoom out) by one step. Turn this off or on in System Preferences > Universal Access.
I hope that helps.

Browser issue


Hey Mekka121,

I've solved this for someone already. So hopefully this solution will be of help!

The solution is actually quite a simple one:

  1. Open the phone browser, or a web page.
  2. Turn the phone over, so that you see the camera lens. Note that the circular wheel around it has a bumpy grip area. This is so that you can zoom whilst taking photos.
  3. Put our finger on the grip area, and turn the phone back around so you can see the screen. Pulling the wheel anticlockwise will zoom out, pulling the wheel clockwise will zoom in.
Note; that this feature works only in camera and browser mode - and not in general menu.

Hopefully using this you will be able to zoom your screen back to a readable size.

Please reply so I can tell if this was helpful, or I can help you if not.

The web browser is displaying a blue screen and a tiny section of the required page only.


Hi BlackenBetty,

Well, from what it sounds, you've just zoomed right out so that everything on the browser page appears really, really small.

The solution is actually quite a simple one:

  1. Open the phone browser, or a web page.
  2. Turn the phone over, so that you see the camera lens. Note that the circular wheel around it has a bumpy grip area. This is so that you can zoom whilst taking photos.
  3. Put our finger on the grip area, and turn the phone back around so you can see the screen. Pulling the wheel anticlockwise will zoom out, pulling the wheel clockwise will zoom in.
