View Full Version : make everything bigger

Hi there,

How does one go about making everything on one's screen appear bigger? Like, say I open Word, or Outlook or Internet Explorer, and want the icons and fonts to appear larger. I cannot seem to find the settings for this! Also the Xtra homepage only occupies about 3/4ths of my browser page..........why?

I use Windows XP on a P4 machine.............

When XP installs it has the annoying habit of setting monitors to a higher resolution than they should be so I am assuming that is what has happened to you.

Right click your desktop & select properties > Settings & knock your resolution down a notch, keep doing this till you get the size you want.
If you also select the advanced tab you can set the dpi to large or select custom & set it to what is comfortable for you.

Try this:

Hold down Ctrl and then scroll the mouse wheel up or down.

why not just increase the font size so that its more readable without loseing the nice high res.
