    Hi everyone, it has been a few years since I've been on here, and feels good to be back:) .
    My old XP had been dying for years, and needless to say it got to the point where I could click to do something, and then go make a 3 course meal before it ever changed, so for the most part I just only got on it for my e-mail, and that even took half the day for the program to open and to get and read all my mail. I externally backed up some things over the years, and then was finally able to buy a new win/7 3 days ago, so of course I'm still getting familiar with it. I know I'll be asked what it is, so I found as much as I thought was needed, but not sure, (sorry). HP, service pack 1, processor AMD A4-3400 APU, 64 bit operating system. Now my problem, two of my programs I installed, Incredimail and Pogo are VERY small. I have changed the resolution but of course that effects the entire pc. I have tried everything to make only these two programs larger, but I'm at the point learning things all over again because of the new platform and the length of time I've been away from the pc. I did go into my pc and found there were two program file folders, one is a 32 bit, the other is a 64 bit, and these two programs have gone into the 64. I don't want to drag and drop the programs into the 32 bit folder because, 1) I don't know what I'm doing, and 2) if they are already open, what difference would it make? the pc is the one that d/l them in there. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and please bare with this novice once again.

    Kathy

    Try under Control Panel/Appearance and Personalisation/Display

    otherwise don't move those progs from where they are, they are in the right place
