    I put in a DVD and the display got changed along the way through a couple of dialog boxes I didn't pay enough attention to. My icons and their titles are real small along with all the printing on the screen and the programs are displayed using only part of the screen. I can't remember how to change things back. I know it's in the control panel somewhere but I can't find it. I'm running windows 98, 450 mh Pentium II. Thanks for any help you can offer. Les

    In the control panel, select Display and on the Settings tab try different screen resoultions by changing the Screen size until you get what size you want.

    That changes how much of the screen is used but the contents of each window remained the same. I need to change the size of the contents not the amount of screen that is used. Les

    Pauls suggestion will do both. Once you get the size you want, then use the controls on the front of your monitor to adjust the picture to fit the screen.
