- Right-click the desktop. This will prompt a drop-down menu.
- Click Display settings. It's toward the bottom of the menu.
- Click the bar beneath the "Resolution" heading. Doing so will invoke a drop-down menu with different resolution values (e.g., "800 x 600").
Click a resolution value. The resolution best-suited to your computer's screen will say "(Recommended)" next to it.
- The higher the resolution number is, the smaller your computer's text and icons will appear.
Click Keep changes. If you don't like your new resolution settings, you can click Revert or simply wait for a few seconds until the resolution automatically reverts to your computer's default setting.
