Hey, my name is Zach. There's a couple different ways that you can zoom out on your desktop to give it that bigger display. Now, the first thing you need to ask yourself is how big is your display and what's the optimum resolution. The larger the resolution, the smaller the image is going to be. So, I'm actually not in my optimum resolution right now and it looks a little bit zoomed. What can I do first is right click, go to screen resolution and I can go to resolution here. Now, there are actually two higher resolutions I can select; 1360 by 768 or I could go to the highest resolution which is 1366 by 768. I can close out of this just by clicking the window and hit apply. We're going to go to keep changes and it's made my desktop a little bit smaller. Now, we'll hit okay and now what we can do to make our desktop a little bit more zoomed out is right click, go to view and we'll do small icons, and those zoom out as well. We can also go to display here and we're at smaller right now, but if we were to set to medium, you would notice that it would be much larger. My name is Zach and I hope this video helps. Thanks for watching.
