How to change Windows machine screen resolution?

by admin 20. September 2011 03:53

Question: I am using Windows 7 Home Premium. The windows of ezPaycheck will not fill the monitor's screen and on some of them the words are partially cut off.

Answer: The possible reason is the screen resolution is too low. Usually increasing the screen resolution can fix such problem. Following is the guide to change the resolution settings.

You can check your screen resolution by right clicking an empty space on your screen, then select "properties" from pop up menu. I attached the image of screen resolution with this message. You can change it by move the slide bar.

by admin 10. April 2011 02:29

Several users asked why just half of check or image or form was printed when they printed it from printer recently. So we decide to add the solutions to our blog.

The most common reason for this issue is the printer uses the wrong size paper. You should use the Letter size paper when you print the check. (image printer.jpg)

    How to Lock Your PC Automatically When You are away from Your Desk

    by admin 29. October 2010 11:19

    Your payroll tax or check data is important, then you should keep them safe and security. However, if you don’t have the habit of locking your PC manually then I seriously advise you to turn on system auto lock feature.

    Micrsoft Windows system has password protect option in screen savers. If you have enabled this feature, the system would automatically lock itself as soon as the screen saver comes up. On resume, you will be asked for the password before you can enter.

    1) Right click on the desktop -> Personalize -> Screen Saver.

    2) If you are using Vista, check the box which says ‘On resume, display logon screen‘ or else in Windows XP this would be ‘On resume, password protect‘.

    3) Save and close. Next time you move out of your PC it will lock itself after the time you have mentioned in the screen saver settings.
