Monring

try and see if this makes it better.
Right click on Screen
Personalize
Display
DPI (Set cutom text size)
Set cutom text size
then lower the percentage shown.

If that does not work, dont worry, I will try another way, when I get back this afternoon

I can assure you there is nothing wrong with your computer, this can be adjusted.

If you want bigger font, you can try this too. Type magnifier in search

If you do just what I said, every thing should work properly, even messenger. If not do not worry, we will get it to work after I go to Dentist.

No you do it on the desktop. No screen.

First you have a great comuter and Windows 7, things will be easy if you understand how to do it. I will be here for that.

You change the settings once and restart. Then it stays like that. Must be done only once.

You can also type magnifier in search to help you see.

I have to go to dentist soon, but will help after I get back. You post any time you like.

When you changed the DPI it changed how much you can adjust it.

Leave it the way it is and try the magnfier. Type that word in search.
