I have been trying to increase the print size one
Right click on the desktop, SCREEN RESOLUTION, lowering the resolution
will increase the text size. You can also check VIEW on that menu and
select large icons.
Text size is the inverse of screen resolution.

How do i speed up my older pc laptop?
2005 relic PC day. XP the virus magnet
slow doing what? , guess ALL.
all do that , with HDD for sure , HDD slows with age, is a fact.
all old PCs are slow compared to new PC
so buy newer better PC
reliable /safe only happens in hands of pro, why want that ? and ask here we can';t turn the screw driver and not wreck FFC cables.!
if ram is too small buy more ram, none told
what compression?, that is not good, never compress the hdd. wow !
no OS told we can not guess OS
, windows what?
causes of slow, all. (besides scrap it) no order.
- HDD is bad failing smart tests. (and will die soon) 10 years old hdd are mostly all bad now, you are the LUCKY ONE.
- HDD is full , clean out files, not needed, like downloaded endless videos for sure.
- put in SSD boot drive, and reload the OS to it. or clone HDD.
- more Ram ? 2GB is max on this Pig gaming.etc. OOPS fail.
- remove not used APPS for sure in the startup folder,for sure.
- in task manager, make sure ram is not full and CPU not overloaded to 100% if yes this must be cured.
- I bet RAM is fiull, 2GB is tiny. easy to fill up , the CPU is slow a Duo processor, Intel Core Solo processor!
- do not clone any bad HDD that fails smart tests.
- this XP PC the last one on earth running and is infected as all are and infections make PC run slower or worse, there is always worse here,(topic)
- it ran for 10 years, be happy, buy i3 and up based PC. win
How do you install a hard drive
Larry provides great answer up there ^^^ which is better down here.

NO PC told (dell has 10000 models)
no OS told, windows what"?
no drive told.
my wild wild guess is the boot drive is locked.
and you are attempting and ******* act. to it.
like deleting key parts of a running OS (windows) (like deleted tires on rims of 85mph moving car, fails)
no real goal told, but the nebular "install HDD"
one can add a 2nd drive easy or any of 1000s of external HDD models or external or internal, SSD or even a thumb drive. (vast) (just 2 steps in fact)
but the boot drive , change out is far far far more complex. and you never not told that.
you want to mess with the C: drive?
now let me guess the real goal (sad I must)
the OS drive windows is failing ( common)
and some lil' bird told you it needs a new boot drive, and then fail to say so here.
okay I will bite.
1: buy a new SSD (hdd fail and are slow)
2: buy a new OS, from MS. or get free w10. (ask how)
3: then put in new SSD,
4: run the w10 installer media (it is free)
5: load w10 to the SSD fresh
6: answer the silly 30 questions it asks.
7: and click activate. (buy it)

Pass words (pass phrase)
your PC can be trained ,(NO browers told by you) to store PASSWORDS, on any site on earth
if enabled, if not , NOT.
Internet explorer (MS) is now banned at most sites and MS has dropped support for IE1 to 11. so forget that. (EDGE IS new)
use Chrome or better, FireFox V100 + up.
in firefox. click settings , click privacy .
Ask to save logins and passwords for websites
it is true some ,on line , accounts limit devices, like netflix
and is a kinda serial number, ID, hidden
FB shows no such thing in the search box.
they abuse your rights.
and even punishments.
How do i change admin password

what does change mean,
lost it and now can not get in
or means just want to change it , logged in.
NO PC told and NO OS told
or if bios admin or windows admin.
bios or windows.
both are hacking./ if lost.
so google the cure.
How do i eject a cd from the laptop
push the physical cd drive try button marked EJECT
the PC must be running,
or use the paper clip hole trick. (if PC is dead or tray jammed)
google that. clip trick

My dell laptop keys 1QAZ KEYS ARE NOT WORKING
if a row is not working, in this case at an angle, it usually means either the keyboard is going bad, or the cable is not in right. Often unplugging and replugging the keyboard into the MB will fix a missing row.
Line on my laptop screen
if you have line in your laptop then it may become permanent depending the condition how it happens like dropping your laptop, manufacture fault etc. Best option for now is to take it to the service center
