    Is there a way to make the Icons bigger on my tx2500 vista laptop? The idea is I would like it to be more touchscreen friendly.
    I tried changing the screen resolution 600x800 which did exactly what I wanted it to do but I could'nt get the screen to calibrate on the top left side so it didnt end up being that useful.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    ctrl + mouse wheel up

    or

    Click view button arrow on any window and drag the slider to desired size.

    Right-Click Desktop -> Personalize -> Display Settings -> Advanced Settings

    My laptop doesnt have it, but I know when I was using XP w/ a different gfx card I had the option to change the DPI setting without changing the resolution, which in turn leaded to larger icons for a lower DPI. If your computer has the option Id try it out. I think standard is 96 DPI

    For the desktop icons just right click on the desktop>view>large icons. For the taskbar right click on the desktop>personalise>windows color and appearance>open classic appearance properties and you can change the icon size here.

    First thing I did to Windows on my tx2500z was switch from 96 to 120 DPI.

    If you right click desktop and select personalize, there's a link in left panel to scaling applet.
