Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen resizing Hello I cannot find in the menu (right from on the monitor) to change the screen size.  Right now it looks like I'm watching a widescreen movie.  I did find where you can shift the entire viewing area up and down, but not actually enlarge it. Help?! Thanks.

    Um, thanks, but I think my choice of words probably threw you off. What I meant is that it ALWAYS looks like i'm watching a widescreen movie, even if i'm just on the interent or whatever - the screen isn't stretched enough. but there isn't a setting from the monitor to change it - at lest not one i can find.

    This monitor/screen is way too big for me. I need to make the screen size smaller. How is that done? You did not answer the previous question - it is NOT the player but the actual screen size that needs to be changed.

How do I change my computer monitor to 1680 x 1050?

First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig. below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.


The areas worth noting are: google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

Color Quality
This pull down box will contain the current colour options available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for best results select the highest option available.
Changing the ResolutionTo change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box, if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

When you have finished simply close the Display properties box.

How do I make an image file smaller so I can send it by e-mail?

To make an image file smaller for e-mail transmission, change the image file size in "Exif Viewer" or "FinePixViewer". Changing the size of an image file 1. Start up the Viewer and select the folder containing the image you wish to send. 2. Double-click the thumbnail for the image file you want to resize to open the image in its own full-size window. 3. Select "Image size" in the "Image" menu. 4. Set "%" as the "Unit" used for file size display. Then enter a value lower than 100 as the "Width" or "Height" and click the [OK] button. 5. Select "Save as" in the "File" menu to save the image. (You can also reduce the image file size by lowering the quality in "Save as type".)
