    I was scanning the board and must have clicked something that made the writing on my screen so small it is hard to read. Is there a quick fix. It is just on this site.

    It depends on what browser you are using how you will change it back. Google Chrome has a zoom feature.

    You may have changed the zoom level in your browser.

    Hold down the CTRL key and hit 0 (zero). It takes you back to your default zoom level. When a webpage's font is too small, you can CTRL+ (ctrl & plus key) to zoom in or if the font is too big, you can CTRL- (ctrl & minus key) to zoom out.

    On some keyboards, if you hold down the "control" key and press the "=" key at the same time, the print will get bigger.

    If you hold down the "control" key and press the "-" key, the print will get smaller.

    On the Mac, I need to press the key that has the apple on it (I think it's the ALT key) and the = key to enlarge, and the apple (alt) key and - key to reduce the image.

    If you have a scrolling mouse, hold down the CTRL key and roll the scroll wheel back and forth to zoom in and out.

    Does this work for you: Hold down control button and click on the + sign. Holding control and - sign reduces the page.

    I think we were all typing at the same time! :)

    Holy Moly!

    I knew about the Cntl +/- keys but had no idea about the 0.

    So, that's been around for, what, twentyplus years? :roll: :roll: :roll:

    Sheesh.

    And thanks. ;-)

    click on the writing on the page, hold down control and the plus key. That should increase the size of the font.
    Everyone is sure quick today with the responses.

    Good Show! I learned two new things today. To enlarge with the scroll button and the 0 to go back to default. I am getting so smart in my old age, thanks to all you peeps who keep on learning. So, thanks so much.

    I have a box on the bottom right of my screen that gives a percentage (right now is 100%) and and arrow down. You can clock on that arrow and change the size of the screen. Maybe this is on yours, too.
