Dark screen/ large font size in explorer

I have two problems with my compaq.  First, the screen has become very dark.  I changed the graphic colors to makeit a bit lighter but the screen is not the way it used to be.  Is there a simple fix that I can do?  Second, when I use internet explorer, the font is abnormally large.  I have changed the text size to the smallest setting but on some websites, the text is still huge.  Is there a way that I can fix this?  Are the two problems related in anyway since they relate to a screen.

Font too large in google mail


Go to your settings on the inbox main page and change the font size. Also it could be your internet browser settings. With internet explorer, it allows you to change the font size. In that situation you would have to go to the internet explorer options and change it manually.

Windows XP text size is too small. How do I make it largerr?


Click on your Desktop with the right mouse button and select Properties from the Shortcut menu that appears. In the Properties window, click on the Appearance tab. At the bottom of the Appearance tab you will see "Font size:" click on that drop-down menu and you can select Normal, Large Fonts, or Extra-Large Fonts. This is how you change the size of the text that is specific to Windows.
To change the size of the text in Internet Explorer, open up Internet Explorer and find the View menu (it should be near the top left of the screen) click on View and in the menu that pops down, hover your mouse over Text Size so the menu will pop out to the right, here you can select Smallest, Smaller, Normal, Large, Larger, and Largest.
If you would like to increase the size of everything in Internet Explorer, you can hover over Zoom in the View pop down menu and change how much you are zoomed in, this will increase everything for you!

I hope this helps! If not, please comment back and let us know!

My words in my compt. are so small i cant even read my websites well.my kids played wiyh it and they shranked all the words.can u help?


Assuming you have a MS Windows OS. There are a couple of ways to remedy this situation. Option one is to change the screen resolution by right clicking on the desktop screen and selecting Properties and then Settings. Change the Screen Resolution to something lower than the current setting. This will cause everything to enlarge on the screen. Option 2 is to just change the font size as the standard. Right click on the desktop screen and select Properties. Select Appearance and change the Font Size to Large Fonts or Extra Large Fonts. If you are trying to change the font in Internet Explorer then choose View/Text Size, select Larger or Largest. That will change only the fonts inside Internet Explorer.

Prints very small


The font size is going to be controlled by the program you are using. For normal word processing you would use a 10 or 12 point font.

If you are referring to printing from a browser like Internet Explorer, you can change the font from the Internet Explorer menu VIEW > TEXT SIZE > MEDIUM (normal).

Note: Internet Explorer font settings effect Outlook Express too.

Dell C840 Increasing resolution increase screen size and vice versa


Laptops when running in non native resolutions sometimes tend to use a small area, so that the bluring of text is not noticeable. The reason is that laptop text is only sharp in its native resolution, and in your case the possibility is that your native resolution is 1600x1200 (If you can post the exact model or a link with your machine configuration, I can confirm what the native resolution is).

However you can make the icons and text larger, the best way is to and change the font size in windows (display settings) from the normal to large or extra large. This makes all the fonts much larger and easy on the eye, and it also will keep the text large as you are still running it in native solution mode.
