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?

Is this your normal desktop, or inside a Virtual Machine?

If so, what VM are you using since your CPU can't support XP mode?

Hi there
If you are using vmware software for your virtual machines you can ser "Fit Guest Now" / Auto fit guest etc. etc. etc in the vmware settings / menu for the running VM.

To get the VM into FULL SCREEN mode press CTRL+ALT+ENTER.

Do the same to get back into "Windowed" mode.

Cheers

well, I'm not familiar with virtual machines,
I should say that I just installed windows 7, I didn't installed anything called virtual machine AND
as i told you, my CPU type, doesn't let me run windows xp mode embeded in ultimate version of windows 7 ( I tested my cpu by a software which it was in microsoft website, can't remember it's name, just know that it was a very small software )
so, I think we can say that it is just my normal desktop

Hi there
I don't think your problem is do do with running a Virtual Machine --try posting in the Windows Installation and Setup section.

This is probably set to more than 100%. As you can see, I set mine to 125% so I can see better.
