    I just made the font larger!!

    If you are just barely a computer person, like I am, you may need the information I just got off of another thread...mainly, how to make it all larger. Look at the toolbar at the top of the page....not this site, on your computer. Under View, scroll down to Zoom. Mine has zoom in and zoom out. I just clicked on zoom in, and now everything is perfect here.

    This will give me a chance to get used to the new look, as I was struggling before, but I was also determined not to give up. Change is always hard for me, probably for lots of folks.

    I bet I am the only one who didn't know how to do this. I was hoping the font would stay big, so I logged out and came back. Had to enlarge it again, but that is easy...now that I know how to do it.

    If you use IE, on the bottom right hand corner of the screen there is a little magnifying glass. If you click on that, you can enlarge what you see. On my big monitor at home I have it set to 150% to see most everything better.

    Or you can click on the control key and the + key to make it bigger, if you click on the control and the - key it will go smaller.

    AND, if you have a mouse with a little roller wheel between the right and left buttons -hold down the CTRL key and move the roller wheel forward to enlarge everything and roll backward to make it smaller again.

    IF you do NOT have the little roller wheel - hold down the CTRL key and hit the + sign to enlarge then CTRL - to reduce.

    Hi ladies if you use control and the plus sign by your backspace key it will enlarge anything on the page. To decrease the size use control plus the minus sign next to the key with the plus sign.

    Thank You!! I had completely forgotten the little "CTRL roller" thing. I have "old eyes", much better now :-)

    That worked great shanlo! Now I can read the board without leaning right up to the screen squinting at the tiny print - LOL. I had to also hold the shift key down.

    Thank you so much. I was really getting blurry vision if I stayed at it to long.

    Thanks for this hint. I have used the computer for many years and did not know this. Once in awhile I get to teach something new to my "computer wiz" husband. I will try this one on him. So very handy.

    I keep mine on 125% or 150% all of the time, it is just easier for me.

    I finally got the background a little darker.
    Now how can you make the space in each persons reply area smaller. It takes a long time to scroll thru posts because there is so much empty space in everybodys reply.
