    What's going on/ computer help!!!!!

    Yesterday my computer decided to set itself. When I get Quilting Board everything is fine...but when I click onto and try to open something everything is huge,..like the page I am on now is huge like 3/4 inch
    and it is very distracting. I tried to find something on the control board and that seems to be only for primary links and not secondary.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    You can enlarge or decrease any page by pressing "Ctrl" and rolling the little wheel on your mouse at the same time. Slowly!.

    I got a new computer yesterday, its had so many problems. There's something wrong with the enter key. When I'm typing on this board it won't let me start a new line, it just stays there. grrrr!! It has Windows 8, hate it, hate it. Sharon in Texas

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I never could figure out why the page changed sizes all of a sudden. Now I know it's a nut loose behind the keyboard.

    As a typist, I found it very hard to get used to "word wrapping" in word processing. I don't have Windows 8 but one glance was enough for me, an early IT student when Windows and DOS did what we asked them to. You could try using the TAB key! I suggest you return the pc to the supplier, meanwhile I'll ask my IT consultant son if he has any ideas.

    Love the "nut behind the keyboard", and the devil who created Win 8 comments.
    Many ideas and desires but not enough hours in a day - I love quilting

    I hold the control key and either click the - key to make it smaller or the + key to make it larger
