Tiny windows...

  madzad 21:18 08 Dec 2003

I have just bought a new computer using XP home, the thing is the text and window sizes cannot be expanded when surfing. For example, when signing into hotmail. I have to squint to see what Im signing in with!

I dont have this when working off line, there is an easy way to sort this out but Im stumped if I can remember how I sorted this out last time. Id really appreciate any help anyone can offer. My knowledge of PCs and OS's is reasonable.

You say they can't be expanded ... What happens if you drag the edges to make the window fill the screen? If you can do this then File/Close and the next time the window should open full-screen.

I am assuming that we are talking about Internet Explorer...

Hi Vog

You can change the font size using View/Text size or if you have a wheel mouse hold down CTRL and rotate the wheel.

Hi Vog
Im afraid to say that was the first thing I did... I had an idea to got to the manufacturing website for the new monitor and ask for a driver as when the new PC and monitor came togther there was no drivers for the monitor.

Its a long shot, thanks for trying tho..
