Laptop screen is too magnified [Solved/Closed]

-
Hello,

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

Thank you
Hey,

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!

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.

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.
livehealthier,
I thought the same thing when I went to fix mine. Mine was just under "Personalization".

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
