I have a new Acer 22 Wide screen. I have updated the drivers. I was using a flat screen 17" and i have Vista. On the screen here, either in firefox or Internet Explorer, the top part where the address bar, File, edit, view,etc and even above the web page, the tabs i have opened, all is tiny. Is this feature to save on viewing space? Or do i have my settings wrong? When i view the webpage and then look at address bar, my eyes have to refocus and after some time i feel like I'm getting a headache. One more description. For example, if i miss spell a word and move cursor on top of word, right click, then a dialog box opens,(here is the problem) the info in the box is tiny. I would think, with a big view screen, the dialog box would be larger and the font inside as well. Hope this makes sense. Thanks
Two things you can do,
With the mouse at the toolbar right click and select large icons.
Also right click the desktop
In Vista hit personalize and on left adjust the DPI
In XP I think it is under your video card settings.
No, i couldn't find any thing to adjust sharpness. I guess this is the way it is supposed to be. Even though the text in drop down menu's are very tiny, then when i adjust dpi, my system tray items look wierd. At least i can zoom in or out on web pages, it's just the text in drop down menu's never adjust, no matter how big i zoom the webpage view. Oh well.
