The display fills the screen, but the typeface and icons are so small as to be illegible. Changing to a smaller resolution only keeps everything the same size and shrinks the screen size. For instance, changing it to 1400 x 1050 leaves an inch of black around the desktop. Changing the resolution to 1280 x 1084 leaves a larger space around the desktop.
I have changed the refresh rate. I have changed to "large icons". I have adjusted DPI settings. I have used all options in Settings - Advance in the properties dialogue box.
Using any browser, the "page" is small. Scrolling with CTL+mouse wheel enlarges parts of it, but not everything. The browser itself is full-screen, but whatever site I'm visiting, the page appears in the center with much white area all around.
Any suggestions? The laptop is a great one, even if old.
