how do I change sizes of desktop shortcut icons together with font sizes and eveything else on the screen. display/appearance/menue/font size doesn't do much. also, huge text occurs randomly (after my kids play internet games - if that's [email protected]!).

to change icon size on the desktop you go to properties & appearances... to change font size you go to properties /settings / advance & change the size of the font to large

you name the scheme after you create it if you like.
Not necessary to enlarge icons...
see the middle address window at the bottom... click the scroll arrow & go to icon... the size #'s appear to the right... you can change the # there

"how do I change sizes of desktop shortcut icons together with font sizes and eveything else on the screen."

Are you possibly trying to change the whole screen size...on the settings tab.click and hold on the slider in Screen Area and move to the left or right.

pmarc what is the total desktop size

800 x 600?? or what?
if the display size is larger than that...change it back to 800 x 600
and I think your problem of everything being to small will be cured.
Have you been to start/settings/control panel/systems/device manager & found your display adapter & tried to update the drivers? You should

I'm ok now on the desktop.

In M.IE, O. Express, and other aps, particulary on-line, everything's way too large despite adjusting font size in the ap. All the buttons are too large also.

go back to the paths I sent you to at first... make the adjustments there back to normal

SavvyLady to change icon size on the desktop you go to properties & appearances... to change font size you go to properties /settings / advance & change the size of the font to large
then after you do that if all is normal but the font ...try making it smaller on the browser in View/text

Did you update your display driver?

no, didn't update drivers - however, I figured out everything. thanx. it's an interplay between a lot of screen and font customizing to get your optimal conditions.

It's been a while since I've run W95 but I think it had the same options to setup individual UserProfiles. If you want to, take a look and see if the instructions are the same.
