Thank you
In Vista go to START - CONTROL PANEL - APPEARANCE AND PERSONALIZATION and click on "Adjust screen resolution" then 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.

Thank you, xpcman 90

Thank you
Go to your main screen then just right click, select properties, then go into settings and drag the screen resolution bar to the more side and select ok and hit yes when the little box comes up.
Thank you

some laptops like Sony have a magnification hot key (one of the function keys) normally pressing that key for a second time will cancel the magnification.
I thought the same thing when I went to fix mine. Mine was just under "Personalization".
Thank you
Can't use ALT space bar to make the screen smaller can't see the top of the bar
if its the bar on your internet push F11
