How to resize the text on pendo pad 8


I don't know much about Windows 8.1 on tablets, but if you can find the Ease of Access menu you can run the Magnifier application and set it to lens view so when you scroll to the edge of the screen it will scroll the whole dimensions of the resolution and not just to the edge of the screen size itself. That might help with selecting with what is off the edge of the screen.

My explanation isn't prefect, neither is my grammar. If you run the Magnifier app you'll see what I mean though, it should work.

Click/Tap (Start > [Type] ease of access) the option is there.

Hope that helps

Hi...I have an Acer monitor Model# X193wb,,,it appears that everything is magnified ...my cursor ...everything...how do i adjust the monitor to get it back to normal size again...I have tried...


Hi Alice,
from what I have found on the web: This model features a 1440x900 native resolution
I am guessing you that you or a game has changed the resolution to something other than 1440x900.
Assuming you have Windows 7: If you right click on the desktop in an empty spot ie not on a folder or icon, you should be able to see a selection called Screen Resolution, and then after that pulldown box next to the word "Resolution" that allows you to change your resolution to 1440x900. I am assuming a game has changed your resolution to something like 640x480 or something else like 800x600.
If you aren't using Windows 7 go to Start, Control Panel, Display and you should be able to change your display settings there.
Feel free to ask some questions or help from me.
Regards,
Steve

Hello, my screen is all big and magnified. I was playing Polar Bowler and suddenly closed the computer.


Restart the computer, it's fine.
The game simply used it's own drivers for the screen and it didn't reset back to normal.

Vista Magnifier


Best way to fix it is using "Last Know Good Configuration" option in advance boot menu by pressing F8 during the boot. If "Last Known Good Configuration" doesn't resolve the issue, You may you use System Restore option to earlier date that can be prior to the issue.
Please post if you need further assistance.

Good Luck

Monitor is enlarged, wont return to normal size


Hi, three possible things. 1) You have activated the magnifier. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Accessibility, Magnifier - deactivate, should be a small window bottom left of the desktop. or 2) Your screen resolution somehow changed. Right click on any clear part of the desktop, go to properties, Settings Tab. Adjust screen resolution to desired setting then click Apply/OK. or 3)You are in Safemode. Restart and if same large icons etc, do # 2. Hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post how things turn up. Regards
