Control Panel out of control by Loanarranger
Hopefully this is a simple problem. I can't get Control Panel to open maximized with large icon display. I thought that making the appropriate setting adjustments and then exiting with File...Exit would do it, but no dice! Any help will be appreciated. Ron

Change resolution in windows 98 by pclady
I reinstalled windows 98 and now I am not able to change the screen resolution. It is not high enough to get on the internet. I went into control panel/display/settings/adapter and tried to re-install the driver and it says that the driver is suitable. Can you suggest anything else to try?
