Having problems with your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor ?

Changing font size for larger monitor.

\015 I just purchased a new dell monitor 24 inch size. My fonts size are too small for this screen. Is there a way to fix this.\015

Answers :

You can adjust your settings to something more to your liking by right clicking on your desktop in an empty area - then choose "properties" from the menu that pops up.

In the new window go to the tab that says "settings" and adjust the screen resolution to something a little larger. If you change your desktop settings in this manner then a window will pop up immediately after the adjustment asking you if you want to keep the new settings or revert back to the old one. If you don't select something within like 15-30 seconds it will change back. It does that just in case you change the settings so bad you can't see anything.

Another place to adjust the size of your fonts is to go to the "appearance" tab of the same menu and look for "font size" and there you can make your fonts bigger and ridiculously big, in case you still need to after changing the resolution.

I hope you find this information helpful, have a blessed day!

Blurred screen i was using the monitor on pc mode. i changed the resolution from 800x600 to 1024x768 for a program i have downloaded. however, i decided not to use the program anymore so i changed the resolution to 800x600 again. but i noticed blurry lines along the screen. is this the monitors' problem or the PC itself?
