This is probably the real reason I am having this problem. I had the resolution turned down on the other one to make texts easier to read. I will have to figure a way to adjust this. I knew this well on the other computers. Now if I can find My Computer on this I may be able to adjust that.

I found it, the technique is different, I changed it to 125 percent on the larger monitor without changing the resolution. If this doesn't work I will have to play around with it. Screwing up a computer is a learning experience I have done for years. I experimented and have had to reload windows at least twenty times because of the things I changed that I had forgot to write down so I could fix them. Relying on memory when altering system configuration sucks. I got real good at it with Windows 2000 and XP, being able to shut down anyone from hacking my computer. I need to do this to this one. I have a firewall in my router but some things get access to that and shut it down. I think that thing is my daughter trying to interact with school and business computers, opening up access. It also opens access to hackware. I like to block it at computers but many programs interact with this and I had to open it up to update some stuff.

Hope that helps


Edit: Awesome, you were editing as I was typing.

I love my windows 8. All the core components and features of XP and 7 are still there plus loads of new stuff. Its just all moved around now and some things are a bit redundant to make using it on a tablet more user friendly. This can cause confusion at times.
