Try one or more of the following:

To make everything smaller (decrease the resolution):

Right-click in an empty area of the desktop, and left-click on Properties

Click the Settings tab, and drag the slider bar under "Screen Area" to the left (towards "less"), and click Apply.

To just decrease the text beneath your icons on the desktop:

Right-click in an empty area of the desktop, and left-click on Properties

Click on the Settings tab, then the Advanced button, and choose Small Fonts from the Font Size drop down list Click OK.

For just IE, use View -> Text Size to select a smaller display text

For some serious decrease help, use Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> decrease magnifier It takes the top inch or two of the screen, and shows a maller image of whatever your cursor is moving over There's also an Accessibility Wizard in the same location
