Question

Everything on my computer is wider?

I accidentally spilled some water on my computer, and while cleaning it, I ran over some of the keys, but I don't specifically know which ones. When I did that, though, everything just sort of got wider/bigger. My icons are wider, my webpages are wider, and it is not the zoom on my computer, because I tried to zoom out, but it says it is at 100%, and won't go any lower. Can anybody help with this?

change your screen resolution

Hey,

You'll have to change your screen resolution

Please refer to:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Change-screen-resolution


Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges.

Best of luck,
