This is my first time on the website so I hope I am in the right place to ask for help. If not, please direct me in the right direction.

I had a 15" Crd monitor and purchased a 20" flat LCD so that I would be able to see more of websites without having to keep doing so much adjusting up/down to see portions of the sites not in the viewing area.

With my new larger monitor, I have the same situation.
According the owners manuel, I have following: 20" widescreen, Envision Model # G2016wa Resolution Max. 1680 x 1050@60Hz

Everything on the screen seems to so much larger that I expected it to be, or need it to be. My question is this:

Is there a way to reduce the size of what I am seeing on my screen and by doing so, more of the content what I can not currently see would be more visible without having to do so much adjusting up/down.

I am a novice and if there is help for this, I need step by step help

Welcome Dotty!

Do you still have your video resolution set to the same as you had for your 15" monitor? If it's still set to something like 800x600 or 1024x768 resolution, you'll get the effect.

If the monitor's native resolution 1680x1050 isn't present in the resolutions list to choose from, you probably still need to install a driver from the CD that should have been supplied with the new monitor.

If you're not accustomed to adjusting video resolution, right-click on the desktop and select Properties, then the Settings tab.
