My son in law has just finished using my computer, and I've found everything so big that the left hand side of the page is not visible, I've tried zooming out but it makes no odds, can anyone tell me how to fix it please.

You can try...right-click anywhere on the desktop where there are no icons/files.

Click Properties/Settings tab.

Move the slider...one position to the right. This increases the resolution, which decreases the size of objects onscreen.

Click apply, click OK. If you get a countdown asking if you want to keep the changed settings, the answer is Yes.
