  7. You can change your screen saver by click the down arrow beside your list. All screen savers that are on your computer are listed here. You can also change how long it takes to start and if you want it to password protect when the screen saver stops. For some screen savers there are settings you can change also.

  9. You can change the screen size by moving the down arrow from Less or More. The closer you get to the Less option, the bigger your screen is. There is also a Color Quality option but, I suggest you don't change it. If you change the size of your screen, you may be asked if you want to do this and you will have to say YES to accept the change.
    Flat screens look better with higher resolutions. If your screen looks "fuzzy", try moving the resolution towards the More side.
    When you are done, click the OK button and the window will close.
