Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
my screen is too large, i cannot get it to minimize, all of the info is at the top. i tried the alt and spacebar it only want to move it around. i need everything smaller
The option above didn't help me. The size option is greyed out on mine as well. So try this. First hit Alt+V. Then you can select text size. Select the size you want from the 5 options. It fixed my problem. Good luck.
I use Firefox browser and had the same problem.
On the VIEW menu, click PAGE STYLE, you'll see
"No style" and "Basic page style".
Click "no style". The text page now fits the screen just fine.
The image on the screen is too large, I tried what you said, going to Alt+Spacebar, but when I click on size nothing happens, please help
Here's how I just fixed mine. Right click anywhere on your desk top wall paper (anywhere there are no icons to open) - Click Properties - Choose the SETTINGS tab - Move your resolution tab UP a notch and click OK to save. Mine was set at 600 x 800, and I moved it up to the next highest numbers, or one notch. Everything immediately shrunk back to normal.
I was told that playing a computer game before shutting down is often the culprit.
FINALLY My pages got way too big from screwing around with trying to re-size the pop-up windows that up-load images - only in Firefox.
Google Chrome is now doing it too! I was using the tab key and hitting enter randomly and that helped but this is much better --- there ARE other keys to try!
P.S. Hide developer tools from non-geeks and nerds. They can be dangerous in the wrong hands -- no, not me??!! (lol)
I have tried everything that everyone has said to do. When I get into my setting tabs and go to click on the screen resolution button it won't let me do anything. I just got a new hard drive and this is my newest problem. If someone knows how to solve this problem please let me know.
I play a game, and my laptop is tiny, usually when I play a game the loading page allows me to change the screen size, but this game doesnt, and the window is now too big for me to change it in the game! it wont let me make is smaller or scroll down! and i really want to play! what do i do!?
I fixed it by right clicking the desktop and navigating by hitting alt tab and using the scroll on my mouse then i played with the tab button using alt f4 to close what I didn't want to open. WHat a pain in the ass.
I have ubuntu will I be able to correct the resolution of my screen the same way as windows?
