    Hold down your Control key and hit the " + " key as many times as you need to be able to read the print. : )

    allright,
    curiousity kills the cat...

    I tried it (and it works, thanks!), but now how do I get my screen back to normal?

    I tried "refresh" that didn't work

    Sorry, I should have included the reverse directions also.
    Just hold down the Control key and hit the "-" (minus key also known as hyphen key) key as many times as necessary. : )

    Be sure you're holding down the Control key and the Hyphen key--not the ___ .

    It's not a line - it's a 'minus' sign - to the left of '0' in the numbers row.
