I dont really know where I should asking for help, so I thought I'd start here.

For some reason, just about anything that I open, now opens much larger than it's supposed to. What used to be a normal size view on the screen,now requires me to move the presentation right/left to review the whole page.

I havent knowingly made any changes to anything that would account for this.

Please help!!!

Start by Checking your Screen Display Resolution. Right Click on Desktop > Properties > Settings Tab. Where is the Slider on left set at?

When I click on properties, I get a screen that says General, but no settings tab or slider.
I appreciate your help. As simple and as straight forward as your instructions were, it should have worked,
Nothing seems to work since I been back home from the desert.
Thanks anyway.

And also while you are in the control panel click on 'Display' & see if you get the 'display properties' with tabs.

If you're seeing a General Tab then you're likely right-clicking on a file that's on the desktop and selecting properties but you need to right-click on an empty area of the desktop and then select Properties.

You can also access the same thing through the Control Panel - Display as C141 mentioned.
