For some reason my computer is showing web pages, etc much larger and I have to scroll over and down to view a page that should normally be seen without any scrolling. So I need to resize it, but I'm not having much luck going through the desktop graphics options. I am sure this is a simple fix for a Windows XP, but I just can't get it right. Could someone please help me? I would really appreciate it. I know I probably sound like a moron, but I just can't get it to work on the desktop. On a laptop it's a cinch though....

Hi :thumbsup:.

Right-click on an unoccupied space on the desktop...click Properties.

Click Settings tab...move the slider to the right. Moving to the right makes everything on desktop smaller, while making desktop itself have more space.

If you are using Internet Explorer to browse the internet, you may have accidentally zoomed the browser. To fix this, simply hold down Ctrl and press + to zoom in, or hold down Ctrl and press - to zoom out. Good luck!
