How to change the icons, windows, and the font size?

I turned off my computer and everything was OK. When I turned it on, icons, fonts, windows, and everything was extremely important. I went the DPI setting and it is said this is the default format, but it's not. How can I get everything back to normal?

I have windows vista.


It sounds as if your screen resolution has changed somehow. Right-click on an empty area of your desktop, click personalize > display settings. See the resolution slider? What is fixed at? Try to set and then click 'apply '.

  • How to change the font size and color in the toolbar Firefox 10?

    I was switched to Mozilla Firefox 10.0 by a representative of Dell. I had been using IE8. I have the Windows 7-64 bit operating system. I can't read my toolbar on Mozilla it is so small and the police is black with gray background! Is this not a great combination. Is anyway to change the font size of toolbar and from the colour? I downloaded the module Amazon on WOW! It's clear as a Bell, but Mozilla is absolutely horrible. If I can't get the editing toolbar I need to know another browser to use cause after only 5 hours trying to customize and use Firefox 10.0 I'm all done. I can't get any telephone communication or chatline support. I was in the knowledge base up until I can recite! And Kaspersky is not compatible. More of a nightmare what I need.

  • I can't go in the settings of fonts. How to change the font size?

    I had downloaded the latest version of Firefox and I finished it sync for my Android phone. I went into a kind of dialog box settings and accidentally changed my fonts and text settings and now I can't read any of my Gmail which is in my account on my desktop - it's too small. I'm trying to figure out how I can enter in the content settings (I feel that I do once I have enter the menu 'options' on the content settings page, but I don't know how to bring up the menu of the content/page settings). I use my desktop PC for work and I can't use it with the font settings and how they are now. I also read where the issues are taken, but no one knows how to find the answers to the questions people are asking. How do we get the answers that people give us on the issue, we asked?

    I hope you can help me as soon as POSSIBLE, I can change what I as soon as POSSIBLE. I'm working on my pc 24/7 for the work and is not helping me when I can't read the emails and I can't solve the problem.

    Thank you!

    Hi Upset2,

    Sorry to hear that you are having problems with font sizes in Firefox on your desktop.

    Text sizes really small for each Web site you visit, or is it just your emails?
    Text sizes are really small on your desktop and Android or only one?

    There are several things that could cause your text sizes to seem strange, so I'll take you by a couple.

    First of all, your email page could have a zoom. On your PC, could you please try open Gmail and then by clicking on the icon at the top right of your screen that looks like three lines?

    This will bring up a new menu and near the top of the menu are three buttons: a minus (-), a percentage (that is to say, he could say 70%) and a plus (+). Please click button percentage - this should Gmail zoom to 100%.

    If that doesn't fix it, let's try using the method on your printout. To access the content settings screen, click the button in the top right that looks like three lines. Click on Preferences. A new window will open. Click on the 'Content' button and follow the instructions that you change the font size.

    There is another version of the instructions I just gave you, with screenshots, here: font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages

    Mozilla Support issues are all handled by volunteers, and at peak hours, there may be a delay. Thanks for your patience!

    I hope this helps.

  • [ADF, JDev12.1.3] How to change the font size for all of the components of output within an af:panelBox?


    I need to change the font size for all the inputTexts, LOVs of outputText, labels, etc. which are in different panelFormLayouts inside a panelBox.

    I tried to define a CSS class and to assign to the panelBox but it has not worked.

    You kindly suggest me an easy way to do this?

    Thank you



    You can try something like this:

    AF | panelBox::content label, af | panelBox::content, af | panelBox::content entry, af | panelBox::content select {}

    your style


    At least the style of the components you named should be changed. If you need more you can add others.
