  1. Desktop & Apps oversized after a restart


    Hi

    I restarted my computer about a week ago and as soon as it turned on from the restart my desktop and some apps have enlarged which makes some apps almost unusable as I cant see what some buttons are for.

    I have tried changing the screen resolution and updating the graphics driver but it says the right one is installed and working correctly.


    Any help would be appreciated

    Matt McCormick

    Display suddenly oversized and can't reduce

    running Windows 10 on a DELL Studio 540. suddenly my desktop, mail all apps and icons are oversized. I went to display under settings and checked to be sure set at 100% with recommended resolution and still oversized. What happened and how do I fix it?

    Dragging apps to desktop for shortcuys

    Hi Lance,

    It's possible that some settings are preventing you from adding shortcuts to the desktop. We'd like to learn more about your concern so that we could provide the proper resolution. We just have a few questions for you:

    • Which build version of Windows 10 is on your computer? To check, click
      Start
      , type winver, and press Enter. For example, 14393.1066.
    • Does this happen when you try dragging all apps to the desktop, or just a specific app?
    • Are you using an administrator account?
    • Is your computer connected to a private domain?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    As an initial recommendation, we suggest following these steps as a workaround:

    • Right-click on any empty part of the desktop.
    • Click New > Shortcut.
    • Navigate to the folder location of the app you want and select it.
    • Click OK.

    We look forward to your response and the result of the initial troubleshooting.

    • Using the Themes app, apply the new theme.
