Windows is NOT the most touch friendly operating system. Text, buttons, and windows are not always easy to access. There is a way to improve the touch friendliness by adjusting the Dots Per Inch (DPI). When you increase the DPI text, buttons, and windows will become larger.
How to change the DPI:
- Hit Win key and type "dpi"
- Select the "Make text and other items larger or smaller"
- Select the "Medium -125%" option.
- Click "Apply" button.
The system may make you "log off" Windows, when you log back in the DPI will have increased, and be a little more touch friendly. If you don't like the new DPI size you can always go back and change the settings.
If you need a higher resolution continue reading on the next section.
Enable New Resolutions
The S10-3T has a resolution of 1024 x 600, which may be small for some programs. There is a way of changing a registry to increase the resolution up to 1152 x 864.
Before you change this registry I strongly recommend creating a "System Restore Point because there have been a few complaints about this mod. Although I never had problems with it.
How to edit the registry to get new screen resolutions:
- Hit Win key and type "regedit.exe"
- Go to
- Find "Display1_DownScalingSupported" and open it.
- Change the value to 1
- Close the registry and restart your system.
Once the system goes back in to Windows you will have brand new resolutions.
- 1152 x 864
- 1024 x 768
- 1024 x 600 (default)
- 800 x 600
- 864 x 1154
- 768 x 1024
- 600 x 1024 (default)
- 600 x 800
How to change the resolution:
- Right click on the desktop and selecting "Screen Resolution"
- Change them via the "Resolution" combo box.
- Click "Apply" and "OK" buttons.
When you increase the resolution your system can display more stuff, however the text, buttons, and window frame will get smaller. You may need to adjust the DPI to make Windows a bit more touch friendly. The screen resolution modification also will make the system work harder because it needs to render more things on screen.
Higher Resolution + Increased DPI
