Hi,
I would like to reduce the entire screen size, text, start, so I don't have to keep scrolling back and forth to read everything. I hope I'm explaining this correctly. Everything is too big for my screen.
Also is there a way to increase speed for media player 11? I know ISP speed is crucial but thought there was something else to enhance this. Streaming broadcasts keep "rebuffering"
Thanks for all and any help.
jfred

Are you referring to your screen resolution? You can change that easily:

With no programs on screen, right click your desktop. Choose Properties, then Settings tab. Your screen resolution can be adjusted there. Move the slider bar to your desired setting. The higher the number, the smaller the fonts, icons, and screen size. In other words, 800 x 600 is large print, anything with a larger number than that will give you smaller print and squeeze more onto the screen.

Is that what you're looking for?

Can't help you on the Media Player issue. Sorry :thumbsup:
