Win 7 program fix needing help please

Hi all, I have a problem not being able to see things in all my programs with in win7 for instance filling in the blank boxes on this site to register was real hard I cannot hardly see the little boxes to fill in let alone read what they are asking for. I also use Corel Draw and I cannot hardly see my tool bar tools on the top. When I use Paypal and print and ship labels I cannot see the boxes and where to place my curser so I can type in it. Everything is a bit hard. I went into personalize and back ground color and advanced settings and tried changing things inside there and that don't help for the boxes inside the programs changing themes in areo does not help either I am at a lose can someone please chime in for a fix please. Thank you soo much for some help on this!

Rightclick on the blank desktop and choose Screen Resolution, lower the resolution to make objects larger and more readable but still maintains picture sharpness and correct proportionality.

If it's still too small or you want a higher setting for better picture sharpness, then select Make Items Larger or Smaller and change DPI to 125%, Apply, restart. You can change it to any size you want.

DPI Display Size Settings - Change

Let us know if this helps or you need more options.

It may be that the contrast and/or brightness settings for your monitor need adjusting. You might also try calibrating and adjusting Clear Type.

Post a screen shot of something you are having trouble reading, that will help us understand what you mean. One way to do that is described here: Screenshot with Paint.

You could use the built in Snipping Tool (Start / Programs Accessories / Snipping Tool).
