Every time, I let my daughter play on my computer, the screen ends up being magnified. I don't know how to get the screen back to normal.

Can you please help me?

System Configuration: Windows Vista Internet Explorer 7.0

Follow these steps:
  • In Vista, go to START > CONTROL PANEL > APPEARANCE AND PERSONALIZATION and click on Adjust screen resolution
  • After it, use the slider bar to set the resolution to the default (best resolution) for your laptop.
  • When it's too big, it might be set to 640x480 - you can just pull the slider over to the far right ("High").

I hope this helps!
