Yes, but you won't be able to magically increase the quality of the image beyond what you start with. So, think like putting silly putty on newspaper, and then stretching the putty. That's basically what you'll get on a computer.

so it would screw it up more than fix?

In reply to: Yes

or would it be worth it? because i wouldn't be making the image bigger. (i know that even though i wouldnt do that some bad things would happen but would the goood overcome the bad?) and when i make the image smaller is it seems that the resolution is better, is that just an optical illusion?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
