Windows 7: How to zoom out the whole desktop or screen

How to zoom out the whole desktop or screen

Hello my friends,
I have windows 7 ultimate 32 bit
I use Samsun 16" Wide;
When i run a program, it's like a flash,
it appears that some parts of it are not shown, and it shows an error;
Here's the error:
" ERROR Control Panel/Display/Appearance/Display Scheme

This computer is set to display abnormally large window borders and window controls. Please reset this to a "Windows Standard" scheme. "

I think everything is because of this wide thing, but what can i do?
( BTW, my CPU doesn't support XP Mode in 7 ultimate )
what should I do now?

First that comes to mind - make sure the display resolution matches the output of the graphic card. Of course, Windows should detect the correct resolution by itself, but I would check just in case.

After that, you could try changing the theme. If that does not help, go to Personalization, then Display and make sure you are not magnifying anything, i.e. check Smaller - 100% (default).

If nothing helps, then try to change the window borders manually - in Personalization->Window Color->Advanced appearance settings.

Finally, there is nothing wrong or special about wide-screen displays. On the contrary, I would probably never again buy a "square" monitor. However, it might happen - although I guess very rarely - that the native display resolution is not supported by the video card. Then you should try to change the resolution manually to something that both devices are capable of.

P.S. Does this happen to any and all windows? What happens if you manually reduce the window size to something that is way smaller than your screen?
