Why do I see USA Cafe chat so big? It's not fitting on your screen?
This site looks best with a screen resolution (the size of what is shown) of 1600 x 900 HDMI. This gives enough room on your screen to navigate the site and read the text without having to scroll too much. The minimum recommended screen setting are 1280 x 720 and at this size you should be able to use our site without too much trouble.
Navigate to the Control Panel in Windows XP by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.
In the Control Panel window, open Display.
Note: In Microsoft Windows XP, depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the Display icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that says Switch to Classic View.
In the Display Properties window, click on the Settings tab.
Locate the Screen resolution slider on the left-hand side of the window. Under most circumstances, the best choice is 1280 by 720 pixels, possibly higher like 1600 x 900 if you're using a 19" or larger monitor. The "best" setting is highly subjective to your personal preferences.
Note: Some types of software require the screen resolution settings to be set at a specific size. If you receive errors when opening certain software titles be sure to make any changes here as necessary.
Click the OK or Apply button to confirm the changes. If prompted, follow any additional on screen directions.
