Screen Resolution Changes

Question:
When I started my computer a few days ago, the desktop icons and text were smaller, as well as title bars, etc. in all applications. I have tried everything that is under “Control Panel,” “Display,” but nothing seems to work.

Answer:
This does sound like it is an issue with the Display properties in Control Panel.  Try this:

Right Click on a free area of your desktop and click on “properties”  This will bring you to the “Display Properties” window.

Then click on the “Settings” tab to make changes to the resolution.  There is a little selector pointing to the current resolution.  If you move it to the left it will show smaller resolution for the monitor (making everything appear big) and vise versa to the right.

Click “Apply” to see your changes.  If you do not like what you see, try a different one.

If you accidentally chose one that your monitor cannot display, DO NOT PANIC.  There is a timer that will bring it back to normal in 15 seconds. Just leave it alone until it comes back. THAT IS WHY IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU USE THE “Apply” BUTTON INSTEAD OF THE “OK” BUTTON. (The OK button will make the change permanently)

If this does not work, let me know and I will guide you in changing the DPI of the fonts which is in the “Advanced” button in that screen. -Juan-
