Right-click an empty area of the desktop and select “Screen Resolution. Click the “Resolution” drop-down menu and move the slider down to reduce resolution. The further down you move the slider, the lower the resolution becomes and the more magnified the screen appears. You may need to experiment to find the most suitable resolution. Click “Apply” and select “Keep Changes” in the confirmation screen once you’ve found a preview quality that works for you.
