    Quick Question...?

    A while ago someone posted instructions for increasing the size of the print on the computer page--to make reading easier. I know about the ''control-+ sign'', but there was another that I think was simpler. My little notebook...I can't figure how to lock the plus sign so does anyone remember the 'formula? Thank so much for assisting these "Mr. Magoo" eyes.

    On the lower right corner, there is a scale to enlarge your print. I too have to have larger print on some screens. Good luck

    if you are using Firefox, go to Tools, Zoom and choose Zoom text only. if you just want to zoom occasionally, use ctrl and the + [plus sign] at the same time. to go back to original, use ctrl and 0 [zero] at the same time.

    Thx everyone--I found the information that I was looking for. Much simpler solution--just press 'control'' and use scroll wheel on the mouse. Roll forward for larger, back for smaller. Now, if I can just remember until I need it again!

    Thanks for asking that question. At one time I had made the print a little larger, then all of a sudden, I need it larger again. Hmmmm. Definately the eyes.

    I have Windows XP and use Internet Explorer. On the 3rd tool bar down on the right side of my screen, there is the word "Page". If you click on that, one of the options is "Zoom".
