hello all!
Sorry if this is a really silly question, but I can't fathom it out! I have just downloaded a recommended update from Microsoft driver updates - ATI display software, dated January 2002, which seemed a bit odd. The result of this is that everything now appears much too large! I can no longer view web pages in total if I have the bookmarks down to the left, and I cannot change anything in Control Panel as fonts and icons are not listed as large.
I don't know what I have done!
Am I missing something really obvious?

Sorted it out myself by doing a restore to a couple of days ago! Still, I wonder whether there is any other way of doing the update without this effect. :thumbsup:

Click on start, control panel, and dpouble click on display. Then click on settings and change your resolution to a higher setting. Find one that you like

Thank you Grinler. Why didn't I think of that! Tried customising everything else in Display, but not screen resolution!
