mine are 1280 x 800 32 bit If you use 800 x 600 everything will be big.
click on desktop
choose center. Stretch will stretch out the picture to full screen. Can sometimes distort things.
Hope this is what you're looking for.
thanks for the reply but didn't sort out!
Thanks for your time replying to my question.
You mean, to click "desktop" from control panel display setting?
I think I know what you mean by "centre" that's what I use when I change my desk top wall paper. Is this the page you are talking about?
I use 1024 * 768 pixel and my picture is right in the "centre". So, I think the problem is something else?
It's what my cat did just by walking on the key board so I wondered if there are any ways to fix this just pressing some combination of the keys...?
The new setting (stretched one) is not so bad... a bit blurry compared to what I had before. Well, keep searching for the answer..
Remember the video
try System Restore. Go back to the first Reatore point before your cat walked on your keyboard.
Figured it out!
Same thing happened to me last night on my laptop (same model exactly). Super simple to fix!
Hold down Fn key
Press the space bar
Use the space bar to move to the "normal" setting
Voila! Everything goes back to normal
Hope that helps!
OMG I LOVE YOU!!!
How the fuq did you figure that one out?! One of the kittens did exactly the same thing to my Altec Lansing(?) Asus Notebook/netbook (no idea!). I had no idea what I was googling, and there they were: feline shenanigans.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Oh my gosh the same thing happened to me my Burmiese cat walked over the top of my keyboard on my Toshiba laptop and I tried pressing every button and nothing worked and then I came on here and had a look at the replies and found this! Omg your a lifesaver! it was so annoying when I was typing up some things on like Word and notepad and stickynotes for school! Thank you again!
This is so funny
I use a desktop keyboard and my cat used to step on the power off key, so I finally just pulled it completely off. Once it started power down, it had to go through the entire sequence and only then power back up. Now on Linux when I finish, I can press CTRL - ALT - L key combo, lock it, and not worry about other keys anymore.
You know, in Windows it's one key less. Winkey + L to lock. I've never seen a keyboard with a "Linux" key. Definitely a disadvantage of using such a niche operating system.
You must have a very smart cat to press ctrl-alt-del and login.
The "power" key is just a single key. Hit it and the computer goes into a shutdown sequence.
Fn key functions vary with make and model.
Try a new top post to dive into what your make+model laptop or other has.
Oh hey, that fixed it for me this morning, too :) Thanks!!
You are amazing
Oh my gosh. You're amazing. I love you.
However you worked this out you're a genius!!!
OMG my cat did the same thing. She keeps sitting on my toshiba laptop.
I was searching through the settings, control panel etc... wouldn't have ever figured this out!!
Hi, I updated my lap top to windows 10 a few months ago and recently my screen has stretched out and I have no idea what to do. I was told I had to do some updates and I tried to update Java but a error keeps coming up. Can someone help me please? Thank you.
Do you use Java? Most don't. Just uninstall that.
As to the screen. Make a new post as this one is buried.
