My icons are WAY TO BIG!!

Hello everyone, I own a Windows Vista - Compaq computer.


My taskbar and icons /shortcuts, start icons, etc and internet, its all WAY TO LARGE. 


is it a way to resize them? Shrink them in size? I once turned off my computer and when I turned it back on they were gigantic, literally.

Taskbar can only show one window now because of its size.. as well as the icons on my desktop are huge..


can i shrink them in some way? even the internet web page is big :smileysad:

Re: My icons are WAY TO BIG!!

Sounds like your screen resolution has been changed. Right click an empty spot on your desktop screen, choose Personalize from the popup menu. In the window that opens look for 'Display Settings' at bottom.Open it and you will see a slider to adjust screen 'Resolution'..drag it to the right to make everything smaller.
