The problem is simple enough to correct. Go to your desktop and right click anywhere on the screen. Select properties, then click on the settings tab. Toward the bottom right is a box that says screen area, with a sliding bar underneath saying less and more on either end. Move this bar to 800 X 600 pixels, then click apply. A window will open telling you it's going to resize the window and that if it appears incorrectly it will return to normal in 15 seconds. Click OK and your desktop area will be resized. A window will ask you if you want to keep the settings. You can click yes to keep the settings, which are the right size for webpage viewing, or click no, which will make your screen go back to the oversized version.
Your color settings make a difference in the appearance of the webpages you view too. Leaving it set on High Color is your best bet. There are some computer games that require your color settings to be 256 or 16 colors in order to work. You can always switch the settings as needed.
Different monitors can use different settings, depending on the size of the screen. You can play around with these settings and decide which one works best for you. Remember, if you choose a setting that makes your monitor go wacky, just wait 15 seconds and it will return to the original settings.
