Windows 7: Text size

Text size

I have been altering the display, bigger then smaller on my scsreen as I am using a web site building programme which requires a smaller display so I can see the required controls. When I right click on the creen and go back to my original settings, all my text is a lot smaller. I have a feeling there is a way I can increase the size of the text "Smart Text" ???

Can someone please tell me, what are the normal display settings and where can I find them??

Cheers for now,

RonBin79

Hello RonBin79,

If you are referring to the DPI display settings, then the default settings is 96 DPI (100%). Be sure that you also have your screen resolution set to it's native resolution as well for default settings.

If you just wanted to change the size of items in Internet Explorer, then you could adjust the zoom level in Internet Explorer instead if that would help.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
