    I may be wrong - but it sounds like the display resolution is just set higher than the individual may prefer. Try 800x600 or something!

    Try the following:

    Display Properties> Appearance> Effects> Use Large Icons

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D

    Somebody called? :D

    The mouse pointer should stay the same size as it controlled in the control panel.

    Start>Programs>Accessibility>Accessories>Accessibility Wizard will allow the changing of icon and cursor size in XP. Don't know if 98se has that option.
