| how to make the game box/screen larger? Dell told me it could not be done!
To make one of the Windows Games larger:
First, copy the game:
Click Start / All Programs / Games
Right click on the game (Minesweeper in your case)
Select Properties from the list
Press the "Find Target" button on the next window
Right Click on the highlighted file and select Copy
Next paste the copy to your Desktop:
Right Click on your Desktop
Select Paste from the list
Finally, we'll change the resolution setting for the game:
Right click on the game you just pasted to your Desktop
Select Properties from the list and Click on the Compatibility Tab
Put a check in the box marked "Run in 640 x 480 screen resolution"
Now whenever you want to play, click on that game on your Desktop and it
will open in full screen mode ... and they said it wasn't possible!
