New ATT home page

SystemPro

Specs: Windows XP Home, 1.7 GHz/256Mb
ATT has introduced a new home page as of today, Oct, 21, 07.
The home page is much wider than my monitor. How can I make it fit, i.e. cut down to size of the monitor?

Any help is appreciated.

If you are referring to http://www.att.net/
then it displays on my screen which is set at 1152x864.

So, perhaps, change your screen resolution to something higher than it is now.

Most sites will say something to the effect "this site best viewed at xx x xx resolution.

My 17" Flat Screen is set to 1280x1024 and the page displays fine on my screen.

Software gives me a headache.

Hi Bryan:
Thanks for your reply. My 17" flat screen is set for 800x600 and so far (5 years) had no problem with it.
I set the screen at 1024x768 and ATT home page came in perfect - but - everything else is like a miniature on the screen.

Can I just set the ATT webpage on 1024x768? - or is there any other solution?

Thanks again!!

change the DPI setting from 96 (default) to 120 in the advanced display properties.

in 'Appearance', Effects choose large Icons.

Thanks, The_Oracle
I followed your advice and it works.
The large letters on the taskbars look strange, but we can live with them.
The ATT home page and everything else works and looks OK.
Thanks again,

Tom Kelley

If you are using an LCD display you should use the native resolution for the display. In your case I would guess that would be either 1024x768 or 1280x1024. Additionally MS has a software program to help smooth and sharpen text on LCD displays. I suggest you try it. Look at the link below.

Not to over-ride OtheHill's suggestion but I have installed the MS utility but found no value in it but...

Right click on your desktop and select Properties.
Got to Appearance tab, Effects and place a check next to "Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts" also selecting "Clear Type" from it's drop down menu.
Click Ok.

The utility offered by MS is the Clear Type Tuner utility that I, personally, decided not to mess with. Perhaps you may want to?

I used to prefer the 800x600 resolution but so many websites today use the 1024x768 that the 800x600 does not work so good. Once you get used to the 1024x768 (and get new glasses:) you too may find it better.

Hi Bryan:
Thank you again for your suggestions.

No, I don't want to use an other utility, because I am not that experienced - if something goes wrong, to experiment.

Your suggestion works very well - by the way, I just got new glasses a week ago, so all is well.

Thanks again,

Tom Kelley

Clear Type should already be available. The tweak program is small, simple and easily removable and it is a MS program. How it works is like when you got new glasses. Choose which looks better. That is done three or four times and you accept or try again. I could definately see a difference. The main thing is to run in the native resolution. Color depth isn't as important IMO. 60Hz is enough of a refresh rate for most people to see a stable screen.
