Customer Question

I have a really old Toshiba Satellite A105 series laptop and I am trying to get all the data off. The screen keeps popping up to a gigantic size and the only way to get it off is the Task Manager. It will come on and stay for a few seconds and get large again. The resolution is not set on high and I know how to resize things, but it will not work. I want to set it to one size and have it stay there. This thing is making me crazy!

Hi Jayne,

Are you using the touchpad or an external mouse?

It is likely that the CTRL key is stuck which can cause the icons to enlarge and reduce when you use the mouse "wheel" button.

Try using the mousepad and see if you have the same issue.
