The text on my screen is too small to read.  How do I make my screen appear bigger so that text can be easier to read.

Previously, with older CRT based monitors, it was easy to adjust the screen resolution of your monitor to make text and icons appear bigger without sacrificing image quality.  As LCD's have replaced CRT's, one of the drawbacks of LCD technology is that they do not look as sharp and crisp at lower screen resolutions as when the LCD monitor is set to the native resolution.  This can cause problems for customers who have trouble reading smaller text.  Fortunately, Microsoft Windows provides an alternative method to increase the size of your screen objects without having to adjust the screen resolution by increasing the screen Dots Per Inch (DPI) scale.  You may learn how this feature works and more from Microsoft's website at:
