Hit the escape key on the keyboard.

Or try Control-Alt-Delete all at the same time. Task Manager will come up. You should be able to close the window.
Or hit control and the minus key.

Or look in the web site address and change the % size to something smaller.

You have probably enlarged the web page too large.

You don't have the -, a box (for full screen) and an X in the upper most right corner of Chrome?

It's either the Control or Alt button to press and use the up arrow I think, it's been so long since I've used that method.

Hi Jingle, i believe you want the "control" key. Hold that button down and hit your up arrow to enlarge the page size. Do the same and the down arrow to make the screen size smaller.

On my Windows machines, it is the "control" "or "ctrl" key and the "+" or "-" keys. It can be either the ones on the numeric key pad or the top row of keys to the right of the numbers.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean, but I have to enlarge the page to read it.

If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, hold down the control key and push the top of the wheel away from you to zoom in and make everything on the page bigger.

CTRL + pulling the scroll wheel back zooms back out.

thepolyparrot's description is exactly how I enlarge my screen..or decrease. Often used as well to trace something on the monitor screen. Of course, I use a computer mouse..not sure how it's done with laptop.

Thanks everyone. What worked was my desktop was set too large, when I reduced it it all works as it should.

Thanks for all the help everyone.
