Vista Mail. In many of my incoming mails the font size is so small I can not read it (1/16"). is there an easy way to enlarge the mail?

A:How to enlarge font size in Vista Mail

Vista Mail? I wonder if you mean "Windows Mail" or "Windows Live Mail". The size of received mail text is set by the sender. However, see this for Windows Live Mail: it can sometimes be temporarily enlarged for viewing by holding the Ctrl key and turning the mouse scroll wheel.There are ways to increase the system text size but I assume it is only email that you want to change.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

How do I enlarge the font of W7 Pro? The system font, and thus (I hope) Live Mail, and other Live Essentials that have such tiny and fuzzy print as to be unreadable? Zooming in does not work for these applications/system.

Boy, am I sure sorry I got Professional, because it is not a problem in the cheaper versions from what I understand. I enlarged, and picked easy-to-read fonts, as much as I was given the choice through Custom Themes. I even tried resizing the screen, but it puts all buttons outside the visible fields. I guess MS does not care if we can actually read our mail.

I appreciate all imput, plus hope someday Windows will be more friendly for us older folk..

A:How do I enlarge the tiny font of W7 prof., Live Mail?

What steps did you take to change Fonts. Was it through the Advanced options panel? Standard font is sergio UI (Size 9, but that may vary in applications)
In defence of MS, I have no problem reading anything in Live Essentials.

In Firefox 3.x, pressing Ctrl and the plus (+) key zooms the whole page; I'm not sure if printing will reflect the zoomed size of the page or not, but you can always change the scaling of the printed page using your printer properties.

I have been to the section of Win7 personalization where metrics are stored for text display.

If you look at the window options section for borders and such, and select a metric in ("Change Windows colors and metrics" will get you there in the search box) -- everything seems to be in there except the area called window text. Window text is in the illustrated screen area. I can make a screen shot if necessary.

Going to the selections that default at an item called Desktop then right click to open, Window text is not there. An Item called Window (single word) is.

The goal is to have my files and folders show larger in -- Explorer I guess-- and in the network file folders I have in an old style workgroup set up for the home.

I have tried all of the options at the metrics screen but have failed to get a simple folders and files list to display in a larger font.

Installed a bigger widescreen monitor but when I print emails (with WL Mail) the text is smaller than with old monitor. Don't understand it - went back to an email that I printed a week ago and printed again ... sure enough, the text size was smaller (the image contained, however, was the same size). Thought the font size (of text in an email) was 'fixed' when sent - so why is it different with a larger monitor.

Now, I did tell Windows 7 to display the text size larger (so could see it better on larger screen) ... but, if anything, I'd have expected printed size to be larger.

Any suggestions of what to do? (I know can copy email text to another file then go to NotePad ++ and change the size - then print ... but that shouldn't be necessary.)

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, “The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?”

Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.

I have increased my DPI to 250% to be able to read stuff in Windows without getting headache. Is there a way of increasing font size of start menu items as well?

And what about text size of items when alt tabbing, text size of charms bar (win+C) and text size of settings (win+i).
It seems to me that instead of improving the good old features of the older versions, Microsoft suddenly decided to replace them with lots of crap instead, not taking into account that there are people out there who don't have the eagle eye vision.

I've tried changing the fonts the normal way via the 'change window colors and metrice' way in the control panel. However, the font I installed doesn't appear as an option because the font name is in chinese?
I tried to change the font name to English, however it makes the font invalid.

You should move the partition first.

All that being said, I suggest that you backup everything first. Merging partitions can be risky, data can be lost. Merging non consecutive partitions is even more risky.

Hello Guys,

Got around to installing Windows 7 on my home desktop and laptop. Am rather impressed with everything compared to Vista (speed, etc) but have one big annoyance - the taskbar.

I have my taskbar set to traditional mode where each window gets its own taskbar item (ie if I have 4 Firefox windows open, I have 4 Firefox taskbar items show up). I also don't use the Pin functionality as I dislike it.

In <=Vista, every time a new window opened, it would open to the right of the taskbar. In 7, it likes to group applications of the same type (Firefox for example) together. Any way I can get it to revert to how <=Vista did it?

I also have the same problem with system tray icons.

Hi Tech People:

My problem is this: I have Canon Arc Soft photo software which came with my scanner. I'm sort of stuck with it until I can afford to buy a nice photo program. Anyway, I think this is an WinXP problem rather than a photo software problem. I run a five yr old Sony Vaio with 80 Gbs. I have put in lots of memory, over 1.25 GB. I have WIN XP Pro. I have never had a problem with my photo software before and have blown up pictures to 8' by 10"s with no problem. Yesterday I was trying to make a 3" by 5" into a 5" by 7" and I was repeatedly told that there wasn't enough memory. I wasn't running anything else. I have cleaned up my startup menu but I haven't gotten around to the proceses that are running in the background all the time. If anyone has a good place for me to go to learn which ones I can disable I'd appreciate it. I don't know if that could be causing this problem or not.

I have recently had to have Windows 7 reinstalled. Since then my jump lists hardly contain any items. The max No. of items is set to 20, but they never get anywhere close.

Now I have discovered that my Recent Items folder

I am trying to enlarge my partition containing my Windows 7 Home 64-bit OS.
I have unallocated space to use for my purposes. The SystemReserve 100 MB self created by the OS during installation, is in between the partition with the OS and the unallocated space. I know that to be able to resize the unallocated has to be contiguouis to the partition to be resized. How can I change so they become contiguous?

I had trouble using the Mini Partition Wizard.
So I emailed them caise their Video Tiutorial in their site was not working when I tried to Resize the OS partition on a Intel SSD.
They answered saying that their software was having isssues with SSD's and they will launch in brief a new software for SSD fo fix those issues.
Is that the one your tutorial was based on?

A:How to Enlarge Laptop's Screen View


It sounds like your resolution is not set to the recommended resolution for your laptop's LCD. You also may be missing your graphics card drivers. But, before jumping to that conclusion, try right clicking on your desktop and choosing "Properties". From there, select the "Settings" and raise your resolution bar to the resolution that is native for your display (it is typically the resolution to the far right). If that does not solve your problem or you don't have an option to change your resolution, you are missing your graphics card drivers. If that's the case, you'll need to download them again either via Sony's support website (recommended) or you can try to visit and select "Custom Update." Once it has searched, check to see if the drivers are listed under the "Hardware" tab on the left. If so, you are set, if not, refer to Sony's Driver Support website.

Hope that answers your question!

try this from microsoft (Google search): Make the text on your screen larger or smaller

at the bottom of the tutorial I think it alters the DPI, so if the top bit alters it, try changing it back, and hopefully the text stays

There is another program for vision/hearing/etc impared that could potentially help you, even if you aren't any of those. It sometimes lets you alter things you otherwise could not, I just forget the name of it in windows 7, I'll have to get back to you on what I'm talking about.

Anyone know if one can enlarge the window for entering a password on the welcome screen?

Possibly due to my screen resolution settings, the login area for my password is quite small. Once the password is entered and the system finishes booting - everything is the size I like - which is on the larger side since I tend to sit relaxed and away from the 20" screen.

It is either the default user or Admin account resolution. TweakUI had an option to copy the settings over. I can find almost every setting except resolution.

You could try activating the Administrator account, log on, set a low resolution, log out. Log in as yourself to test. And no matter the result, de-activate the Admin account.

try to Resize, it gives me an error at reboot #732, which means I have resized beyond 1024 cylinder boundary. If I try to
Merge, it says there are no mergeable sections.
The C drive lists as NTFS, primary. The other 4 sections are NTFS, logical. There is 2 blocks of free unused space. Win2000 is on the Cdrive. I don't have the PM disk, it belonged to friend.
Any help would be appreciated!

A:Partition Magic 6.0 won't enlarge my Cdrive

First, Welcome to TSG.

Second. Do you actually need all those partitions. Really you should only have two or three. Having more can cause problems if something goes wrong with the hard drive.

If you can, delete some of the partitions so that only the one with 2k is left. After that you should be able to either resize it or make one partition to tkae up the rest of the hard drive.

Hope this helps.

A:How To Enlarge Character At Windows Start


I'm not sure I understand what "character" you mean.

Is it the same as the little image at the top of your "start" menu just to the right of your name?

(Click "start" at the lower left corner of you screen.)
To change your background, "right click" on a blank area anywhere on your desktop, then

click on "properties",

in the window that appears, click on the "Desktop" tab,

then click on the button labelled "browse".

You'll now have a new window where you should be able to select your "My Pictures" folder, and then select an image in it.

Click once on the image, and then click the "open" button.

You should now be able to click "apply" or "OK" in that "Display Properties" window and the image should now be on your desktop as your background.

Notice that in that "Display Properties" window you have a small, "pull down" menu that allows you to select "stretch" (which will make the image fill your screen, but may distort it a little), "tile" (which keeps the image it's original size, but puts as many as it can on the screen), or "center" (which puts the image in the center of the screen, whether it fills the entire screen or not).

Hope that helps, at least with the background anyway.

I've been struggling with an issue that I hope someone here can help resolve. A few weeks ago, I suddenly started seeing this ugly font (see images below) on many webpages.

I think this issue began right around the time I installed some other fonts, but I am not sure. Initially, I figured it was a Chrome thing but have since confirmed the issue extends to IE and Firefox, leading me to believe this is a Windows issue. By the time I tried to revert the changes via System Restore, it was too late (restore only went back a few days; maybe I need to adjust settings there?).

I tried to reset the default font but Windows does not seem to respond to that. When I click "Restore to default font settings" the button greys out but nothing else happens. No dialog box and no change in the issue.

Any ideas?

Hi neon,

I assume your virtual disks are preallocated. Is that correct? If so, did you first convert your preallocated disk to growable? If not here is an example:

Converting a Virtual Disk

To convert a virtual disk from preallocated to growable, use a command like the following:

vmware-vdiskmanager -r sourceDisk.vmdk -t 0 targetDisk.vmdk

This converts the disk from its original preallocated type to a growable virtual disk consisting of a single virtual disk file. The virtual disk space is no longer preallocated, and the virtual disk manager reclaims some disk space in the virtual disk so it is only as large as the data contained within it.

Expand the Size of an Existing Virtual Disk

To expand the size of a virtual disk, use a command like the following:

vmware-vdiskmanager -x 40GB myDisk.vmdk

Hope this helps,

-- Tom

When I use Word, normally there is a white area
representing the paper where I type and a blue
background. The white "paper" usually is about
two thirds the width of the window. The other third
is the blue background split equally on each side
of the "paper". So in other words, one sixth blue,
two thirds white, one sixth blue. The height of the
"paper" is the whole window from top to bottom. In
fact, it goes beyond the screen. I have to scroll down
to see the lower portion.

Above is what I normally see when I open a Word document.
But now, when I opened a new document, the white area was
about half its normal size. It's only about one third the width of
the window and about three quarters the height of the window.

I don't know why this happened all of a sudden. How do I get
back the normal size document?
