Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?

Objects appearing on my screen are larger

\015 I've had to replace my hard drive and since I did, the icons, and things that appear on my screen are larger than they were with the old hard drive, how can I get them back to normal size? I have acrobat reader on my pc, but the page that comes up and says I have to click "accept" to continue with the program is too large to fit on the screen and I can't get to the bottom of the page to click "accept". I didn't have this problem with the old hard drive. HELP!\015

Answers :

Right click on the desktop and go to Properties or Personalize and find the display settings. The resolution bar on the botton should be all the way to the right generally, at the highest pixel resolution.

It makes things appear smaller and essentially makes it so more stuff can display on your monitor.

If you don't have an option to make it any larger (this also depends on screen size) then you need to identify your video device and install a new driver.
