Hi I downloaded a program for Windows (not a 8.1 store app) and The resolution on it is so tight that I have trouble reading text within the Program.  Is there a way to make this thing run at a LESSER resolution.

 

 

I am using a Samsung Ativ 9 Plus 3200 resolution laptop.

 

 

Thanks very mch for any help.

Dankduke,

What exactly are you asking? Are you asking how to resize the application window, or are you asking how to change your current screen resolution? If the former, most applications allow you to resize the application window by repositioning the cursor to the edge of the application window, clicking the edge of the window, and then dragging the window by moving the mouse without releasing the mouse button. I assume that you already how to resize a window as it is a staple feature of almost every modern operating system, but I will include a link with details about this feature, just in case. http://www.computerh...es/ch001478.htm

Are you using Windows 8.1? Microsoft has provided a short tutorial to change the screen resolution in Windows 8.1. I have created a short recording using the built-in Problem Steps Recorder which demonstrates one of the quickest ways to change the screen resolution in Windows 8.1. You can download it here. https://www.sendspace.com/file/fz2gps
