    PC - Size of Items on screen and Internet Smaller?

    Wondered if anyoe can help me please? I am on Vista and last night all was ok and shut down. When I have just logged on to my PC, the image I had as my wallpaper and the icons were smaller. I logged onto the Internet and again, everything is smaller. It's as though my screen has got bigger!!!

    So it;s not just one thing, it;s everything?!

    i have a widescreen 19 inch monitor and as far as I'm aware no one else has made any changes.

    Can anyone advise me please??

    i haven't changed anything - that's the strange thing! I could go to control panel but what would I change it to?

    Right click on your desktop, click personalization (bottom option ) then click display settings. This is where you can change your screen resolution, just move the slider to the left for 'bigger' icons + right fro 'smaller' icons
