Hello and welcome to Just Answer!
do you have a laptop or a Desktop?
tell me the make of monitor in case of PC and brand in case of laptop
tell me about the buttons you see on the monitor
I don't know what you mean by buttons
you will be having some buttons on the Monitor, through which you can adjust the screen resolution
like MENU, EXIT etc.
5 buttons to the left, 3 buttons to the right
any button having Writting MENU above or over it
don't understand. These dell buttons have no writing above them
any signs, symbols?
you have windows xp or vista or 7?
XP or VISTA?
Close all open programs.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
In the Control Panel window, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
In the Display Properties window, click the Settings tab.
Under Screen resolution, click and drag the horizontal slider control to change the screen resolution, and then click Apply.
When prompted that Windows is about resize your desktop, click OK.
If the new settings are compatible, the screen will reappear with the new settings.
Click Yes if you want to keep the new settings.
This has been taken from Dell Website
it will change the Screen Resolution internally
tell me if this works for you or not
if not, then we would do it through the buttons located on the front panel of your dell monitor
the last I get from you is "If the new settings are compatible . . . " Are these new settings on Wordperfect, or what?
no these are for the whole computer
Where do I find them?
move in this order
It does seem to me that my problem is with WP, not with windows or dell. Should not the solution be within wp???
you mean that the Word Perfect page has shrunk and you see it in small size
or the whole computer screen has squeezed?
yes, the wp page has shrunk
ok do you see a SQUARE box in the top left of that shrunk window?
that would be between the " -- " and " X " symbols
Sorry: how do I look at wp while I am looking at you?
click on the MINUS looking button in the top right to MINIMIZE my window
or you can directly click on the Word Perfect file that will have its icon on the TASKBAR, the bar at the bottom of the screen
Duh. I don't see a minus-looking button at the top right, and my wp file does not appear at the bottom of my screen . . .
open WP as you open it usually
leaving this windows as it is
won't I lose you?
dont close this window
