Question Answered: Question about adjusting size of screen

We just got a new computer, which uses Windows Vista, instead of the older version, and I'm finding the screen size of WW rather small. At first, both the login page, and the actual account were small, but the login page I was able to enlarge using Control +. However this doesn't work once I'm in WW. Clicking the maximize button on the top right also doesn't work.

Both of these enlarge the outside edge of WW, but all that gets bigger is the green space inside it, not the actual playing part. Does anyone know how to enlarge this?

Quick Option
You can try increasing your screen by pressing "Alt" and "Enter" simultaneously.

The main thing I would try would be to find the screen resolution that works best for you.

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR SCREEN RESOLUTION IN WINDOWS VISTA

FYI: Change your screen resolution to determine how much information fits on your screen. Changing the resolution either shrinks windows to pack more of them on-screen or it enlarges everything.

To find your most comfortable resolution — follow these steps:

Choose Control Panel from the Start menu and choose the Appearance and Personalization category.
The Appearance and Personalization area lists the main ways you can change Vista's appearance.

In the Personalization area, choose Adjust Screen Resolution.
Look for the Display Settings dialog box.

Change the number of colors your m onitor displays, if desired.
Vista lets you select several settings from the Colors drop-down menu.

To change the screen resolution, use your mouse to drag the little bar in the Resolution area.
Watch the little preview screen change as you move the mouse. The more you slide the bar to the right, the larger your monitor grows. Unfortunately, the more information Vista can pack onto your monitor, the smaller that information appears.

View your changes by clicking the Apply button.
When Windows Vista switches to a new resolution, it gives you 15 seconds to click a button approving the change. If the new resolution leaves your monitor blacked out, you won’t see the on-screen button. After a few seconds, Windows notices that you didn’t click the approval button and reverts to your original resolution.

Click OK when you’re done tweaking the display.
Your new screen resolution takes effect.

Good Luck!!

You cannot enlarge it, as it uses flash. Most of the graphics on it are bitmaps anyway, meaning that they probably wouldn't resize prettily. Sorry.

Default Re: Question about adjusting size of screen

Just wondering... is it a Laptop?
We have a Vista Desktop and the WW page takes up the whole screen, and on our Vista Laptop (we don't have it anymore) and it only took up a bit of the screen... I'm not sure why it's like that, but I wasn't able to change it by changing the screen resolution... Also, my friend has XP Laptop and the same thing happens...

Actually mine id judt like that too. I also own a windows vista, how I do it (this might be a little confusing to explain) but put your WW screen into full screen mode by pressing F11. After that, hold down the button that says Ctrl and hold it down while you scroll with your mouse. Oops I forgot to mention, this means you can only do it with a mouse

No, it's a desktop. We're using the same monitor as with the old computer, and I'm annoyed that the WW screen takes up only a little over half the screen. The old computer always filled up the whole screen.

Sorry, but this didn't work at all.

I've played around a bit with this, and found one setting that fills up most of the screen, but I've lost some of the sharpness of the picture. Also on some other websites I loose the edges, and I really don't want to have to fiddle with it every time. Any suggestions to deal with these secondary problems?

I'm also wondering: Is this whole issue a Vista idiosyncrasy?
