how do i make my screen size smaller?

I have a Compaq Presario CQ57 with Windows 7 and when I pull up things on the internet, only about 75% of the page fits on my monitor since the graphics look so large.  For example, when I go on Google, the word Google takes up a majority of the middle portion of my screen and the box that you'd type what you'd Google takes up more than what the lower portion of my monitor shows.  I'm trying to find out how to make all this smaller so everything fits on my screen.  I've tried going to Start, Control Panel, Appearance and Resolution and then Display and tried various things from there without success, but perhaps I've missed something or there's another way.  Please advise if anyone can assist.

 

Thank you,

 

Scott

Re: how do i make my screen size smaller?

Hi Scott,

 

When in a browser, you can use the following commands.

 

Hold down the Ctrl key and tap - to reduce the size of the page.

 

Hold down the Ctrl key and tap + to increase the size of the page.

 

Hold down the Ctrl key and press 0 ( zero ) to return to the default size.

 

Regards,
