View on the screen (running vista) becomes very large. How do I get back to normal view? I don't know How this happened either.

When using vista the view suddenly becomes too large  - entire screen.  Not sure how I am doing this.  How do I get back to normal view?

Hi,

Right Click Desktop - Personalize - Display Settings - Set Resolution.

Right Click Desktop - Personalize - Display Settings - Upper Left Adjust Font Size (DPI)

Look in right lower corner of IE - next to the + that should say 100% if not use the Down Arrow
beside it to change to 100%. Also IE - Tools - ZOOM

Your mouse/touchpad probably has a ZOOM built-in to it.

Your system also has a Magnifier built in which could be an issue - this can also often be programmed to work
on mice/touchpads.

How to Turn Magnifier On or Off in Vista

-------------------------------

To see if your mouse/touchpad is set to ZOOM or Magnify use Control Panel - Mouse.

Or CTRL +  or  CTRL  -

The TouchPad probably also has Hotkey controls so check with System maker support, on-line
documentation, and their forums if any.

Hope this helps.
