how do i reduce screen and graphics size?

My daughter has been playing games on my laptop HP Pavilion dv7 and after she's done, my graphics and screen are enlarged.  I've tried going into the control panel to reduce the size of the graphics, but it doesn't work.  What do I do?

Re: how do i reduce screen and graphics size?

Hi,

 

Could be the game uses some keys combinations that cause the problem. Does it return back to normal after a reboot ? Please try this: Hold down the Ctrl key and press - (minus) sign few times.

 

Regards,

BH

Thank you so much for your advice. It worked like a charm. I've been dealing with this on one program and now I feel so foolish. :-) 

 

Have a wonderful and blessed day!
