    Notice how in the left side the entire screen only has about half of the amount of icons as the right side.

    This is because everything is so much larger there simply isn't any room! To make your laptop screen look either bigger or smaller, right-click your desktop and hit Properties.

    From there, click on the Settings tab

    It may look a little funny at first, but you can certainly get used to the change within a day or two.

    There are many perks to making it bigger or smaller. For example, having the smaller screen is much easier to get from place to place with your touchpad.

    And making it bigger allows you to easily have many windows showing at once. Especially if you have a widescreen laptop.

    Experiment with making it bigger or smaller for awhile. You may be surprised how much you like the new change.

    This is just one of the many ways you can set up your laptop to suit your needs.
