change the resolution...

To change your monitor’s resolution
<table class="numberedList" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr valign="top"><td class="listNumber" align="right" nowrap="nowrap">1.
</td><td>Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.

</td></tr><tr valign="top"><td class="listNumber" align="right" nowrap="nowrap">2.
</td><td>In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.
</td></tr><tr valign="top"><td class="listNumber" align="right" nowrap="nowrap">3.
</td><td>Drag the Screen resolution slider to the left to decrease the resolution of your monitor, making text and pictures appear larger. Or drag the Screen resolution slider to the right to increase your monitor’s resolution, making text and pictures appear smaller.

</td></tr><tr valign="top"><td class="listNumber" align="right" nowrap="nowrap">4.
</td><td>Click Apply to have the new resolution take effect.

</td></tr><tr valign="top"><td class="listNumber" align="right" nowrap="nowrap">5.
</td><td>If the Monitor Settings dialog box appears, look at your display. If you like the new resolution, click Yes. If you do not like the resolution, click No, and return to step 3 to try a different resolution.
</td></tr><tr valign="top"><td class="listNumber" align="right" nowrap="nowrap">6.
</td><td>Click OK.

</td></tr></tbody></table>Microsoft Windows XP changes the resolution to the settings you chose.

Hmm. Is it always that big? Holding the Control key down and pushing the minus key works for one page...

Sorry, I'm an apple girl, but I have had the kids do the same thing. Soooo irritating.

Yes, the whole computer is that big. My icons don't even all fit on my desktop....they're huge!

Using Lady_V's trick worked a little bit but now everything is slightly too small. I'm picky, I know! :)

Never mind....I think it's all good. I just looks a small next to what it used to be! :)
