WAS: Mouse and Keyboard Property windows - NOW: Microsoft Wireless Desktop 1000 Wireless Keyboard And Mouse Issue

You say in your next post that text is too big for the window.

How about - as a one-off perhaps..
start..ctrl..display...settings..advanced
lower the font size.. All I see the the drop-down is large and
normal.
I can choose Custom, but the lowest I can get is 75%

start..ctrl..display..appearance, but slightly different options. No
custom option.

I reckon though, at best that might only help a small bit. So it
would be a workaround and a poor one.

But if you know your way around the window, with tab, then you don't
need to see the text. You could see the text in the instruction
manual e.g. in a PDF. Or on a website.. maybe even on google images.

Hopefully somebody from Microsoft can respond..
This looks likely to be n issue with that specific MS product - it's
drivers. Maybe they are not compatible with sp3..

How about removing SP3 from add/remove programs? is that an option?
(unless you are a MS style security type who has to have windows
absolutely up-to-date as a priority)

K I run Windows Classic style and on the appearance tab in display
properties I only had as a choice of Normal for font size. So I played
around with the color schemes and if I set it to Windows Standard I get the
font size choices back(Normal-Extra Large-Large). I don't have "Custom"
choice there though I can change font size in Appearance/Advanced button. I
run a theme with my own desktop, colors, icon sizes, etc. If I go to
appearances tab and change the color scheme to a different color than I lose
the choice for font size(back to just normal for a choice). Depending on
what color scheme I chose I get different option for font size some just
normal some just normal and large some normal, large and extra large.
Further if I pick certain color(pumpkin for example) I only have a choice of
large for font size. I did not try all the colors but you get my drift. I
have tried Windows XP for a theme along with many variations but the mouse
and keyboard property windows still open with the same problem. I could be
wrong but I still think that SP3 screwed this up. I know that I can use the
tab key to trip through the buttons on the property windows but I just
wanted to know if anyone else is having this problem or some form of it.
Thanks, Greg T

ollow up, I went through the Display/Appearance/Advanced/Items and reset
the font to Microsoft Sans Serif and everything is good with the mouse
/keyboard property windows. Don't know how this had an affect because it was
already set to that font but at least the problem with the property windows
is fixed. It appears that there are only certain color schemes that give an
option of different font sizes. As I had in my earlier post some schemes
have one(normal or large depending on the scheme) or two (normal and large)
or all three(normal, large and extra large). Greg T
