Hello everyone...

I really need help. My laptop was shut down incorrectly due to a power outage.. I was in the middle of a game. Now when I restarted the font, view is HUGE! I cannot get it back to normal.. I went into 'ease of access' and it says its on normal font not magnified... this is driving me nuts can someone please HELP? These letters are way too big!

Thanks!

Hello Merc, and welcome to Vista Forums.

It may be stuck from a interrupted screen resolution transition from the game. Double check to make sure that you have the native screen resolution set for your monitor, and that the DPI setting is at 96 DPI. If it is to huge to see what you are doing, then you may need to boot into Safe Mode to make these changes instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Here's some additional controls for changing the font size in your system:

1. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size – DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on the scale you prefer, and click Apply.

2. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there’s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page.

3. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, General, Accessibility, You can check or uncheck: Ignore font styles specified on web pages, and click OK, then Apply, then OK.

4. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, and you can check or uncheck all three:
Reset text size to Medium for new windows and tabs, and
Reset text size to Medium while Zooming, and
Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs

5. Open Internet Explorer, click the Page button, click Text Size, and then select the size you want.

6. If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, use command/ctrl + your scroll on a web page to increase or decrease the font size.
