The display size on Windows Vista can be adjusted to fit user preference. Some prefer small icons and text and some of us like larger sizes. To change the display size find an empty space on the desktop and right-click. Then click Personalize / Display Settings. You can adjust the settings and click Apply to test them.
Some monitors are wide and will look strange with some settings. When you are done click OK. Caution: write down your current settings (pixels) before changing so you can always go back to where you were. You can also click Cancel.
Note: Display settings can also be found in the Control Panel. Vista’s Help and Support button also has information under “Change screen resolution”.
