I have a desktop computer, I'm not sure of the specifics, but the screen has zoomed in. I can still see the whole screen, it's just everything is much larger. I tried turning zoom off in 'Universal access', but it didn't work.

Does anyone know how I can make the screen back to normal size?

IMac Intel :: Circa 2009 Dual Core Intel IMac Screen No Longer Sleeps - Is It Normal
My 2.66 MHz Dual Core 2 Intel iMac, from 2009, running OS X 10.6.4 has problem in that it's screen will not go to sleep. Right now, I have have the systems prefs set so that after 6 minutes, I get a screen saver and after 10 minutes, the screen goes black. I am suspecting that the reason has something to do with my recent acquisition of a Magic Mouse. At first the screen sleeping worked fine. Now, the screen saver will kick in but the screen going to full sleep does not occur unless I move the cursor to the bottom left corner to put the screen to sleep manual. Is there a pref file I might want to blitz? Reset PRAM?

IMac Intel :: Screen Size Reset - Screen Is Too Large
My 12 month old banged the keyboard in my imac for about 20 seconds. The result: it looks like the computer was reset for a screen size LARGER than the imac screen size.

I now need to use my mouse to see the full screen, e.g., to see the time display in the upper right hand corner, I need to take the mouse there so that the screen moves to the upper RH corner. To see the dashboard (which I keep in the bottom), I need to take the mouse and take it down in the screen, so that it shifts down.

I made sure the display resolution is 1600x1000, but it had no effect on my problem.

IMac Intel :: Black Startup/Restart Screen With White Words - Normal?
I have a Feb 2010 21.5" iMac that ever since new shows a black screen with rolling white words during the start or restart process until the normal blue screen desk top emerges.

Seems that the machine is talking to itself. Even may be making self repairs.

Rather like being able to see what is going on. But is the visibility of this activity normal? If not should or how could it be corrected?

IMac Intel :: Screen Not Full Size With DVD Movie?
I have a new iMac and played my first DVD. It was a 16:9 letter box format. The DVD started as a very small picture. I then went to view and set for full screen mode. The movie still only expanded to 70% or so of the screen. Are iMAC not capable of using the entire screen, I thought movie playing was a feature. It looked great and we moved close to the screen, but this cant be right.

IMac Intel :: Screen Text / Pictures Size Bigger Than Display?

MacBook Pro :: Machine Too Big For Normal Computer Usage
do you think the 17 macbook pro is too big for normal computer usage (not talking about professional usage they require the extra size like photographers and video) is it too big for the rest of us? Is the extra screen space and pixels not worth the compromise in size?

OS X :: How To Make Screen Size Bigger Than Macbook Pro's Monitor
i have a 13 inch macbook pro, and i want to set the screen size bigger than 1280 * 800, to maybe 1600 * 1200 or something. obviously i cant fit more than 1280 * 800 pixels in the 13 inch MBP screen, but I want it to function as kind of a 'cropped' screen - so i'd have to move my trackpad around the corners of the screen to see more of the desktop. i know it will look like crap and be a bit cumbersome, but i don't really care about that. is there any way to do this?

by the way, i don't NEED the ability to use my trackpad to move around the screen. i don't plan on using my MBP like this permanently, this is just for experimental purposes.

MacBook Aluminum :: Doesn't Zoom Out / Can't Get Screen To It's Normal Size
I was surfing the net and all of a sudden my screen zooms in. It's not where I zoomed in on the page but the actual screen/computer itself. I think I was pressing down one or two of the four keys (fn, control, alt, and command)and suddenly the screen is zoomed up. It's like another one of those keyboard shortcuts that I don't know about and now I can't get my screen to it's normal size. Wherever my mouse goes, the screen follows.

IMac Intel :: Can't Retrieve Big Files Off Flashdrive
I've done a fair bit of reading before I posted this. I try not to waste anyone's time but I'm at a bit of a loss.

I have an iMac and have to use PCs as well. I try to carry my bigger files (2 gig - 8 gig) on flash drives so I don't waste data dvds.

My problem is when I try to retrieve the files ont to my mac it gives me an error - 26 and ejects the disk.
I've read the limitations on the size of files on flash drives and the limitations on whatever formatting used on the drives themselves but I have co-workers that use flash drives for bigger files than mine with no problem. (As an aside, I do have file envy).

Is there a utility or something that I need to activate or install (i.e. I had to install Rosetta to run my scanner software. It used to be auto installed on mac but Snow Leopard seems to leave it off).

Snow Leopard :: Big HD Size Increase From SL
Installing SL went flawlessly and there was an immediate increase of more than 12GB in my Macbook Pro HD space. This is double the amount that was promised. I thought this was just my good fortune and a lot of OSX compression but I got the same unexpected increase in the external 1TB USB drive I use for Time Machine backups. The available capacity jumped from 405GB to 438GB, even though I haven't made any significant changes in stored files or the backup. Did SL do something to the Time Machine backups or does it measure the available HD space differently? I'm not complaining, I just want to know what's different.

OS X Tiger :: IMac Constantly Goes Dark, Then Blue Screen, Then Back To Normal?
My wifes iMac constantly goes dark screen, then blue screen, then back to normal every minute or 2. Whenever she does something like watch videos or chat, and it's pretty darn annoying. I rebooted & repaired permissions & repaired off the install disc & even ran Disk Warrior, and flushed all caches with cocktail.

Why would it do this constantly and what can we do to stop it, short of a fresh install?
