How do i increase the font size on my screen? I am having to read the forum with a pair of binoculars to see the words. I went to my computers control panels apperance and personalization and i think its at the maximum size.There was a thing on the toolbar that said resize but its not there now.

Mine is the same until I go to post reply and then I have that option to increase the font.

On my browser, IE8...I can go over to the top right, click on page, then zoom in the drop down menu and make it larger that way

Also, is your resolution set correctly for your monitor size?
It got smaller overnite some websites like craigs are BIG

What browser? Firefox has an option for increasing size using your control key/letter. Not sure what the combination is, but I saw it when I upgraded to the new version.

In LB user manual page 99, I found this :)

<======================================
Another method to change font size in Internet Explorer is to change the size of entire web page. Follow the steps below to do so:

Point the mouse cursor to anywhere on the web page.
Hold down the CTRL key and spin the wheel of your wheel mouse up and down.
As you do the text will either increase or decrease depending on which way you move your wheel.


If you do not have a wheel mouse, there is a windows shortcut that is able to change font size in Internet Explorer. Follow the steps below:

Open any web page using Internet Explorer.
Hold down the CTRL key, then press + to increase the font size, or press – to decrease the font size.

OR... you can open Internet Explorer, click on "TOOLS" then "INTERNET OPTIONS"

Click on the button "ACCESSIBILITY"

When window opens under "FORMATTING" check box "IGNORE TEXT SIZE"

Click "OK" and "OK" again to close Internet Options.

This will not distort the amount of page on the screen but will give you control over the size of the font. I run almost all my pages in this format to keep from having to left and right scroll all the time when resizing the whole page. IE will remember this setting until you go back into ACCESSIBILITY and uncheck the box. Handy!

I usee this optioin so much I put a quick thingy in the toolbar to get to Internet Explorer Options on the old IE versions, now it's right up there under "TOOLS". Some web designers forget about us evileyed folks, especially regarding that stupid yellow or red type over a blue background. You can control this also from "ACCESSIBILITY". (Wink!"D)

If this gets any smaller im gonna need the hubble telescope to read the forum.
Reread all posts above and then DO SOMETHING before you get any smaller... I can't have you fall off my monitor down where the cat can get you!:sidelaugh Please try the Accessability trick, it's easy and no other screen size adjustments need to be made.:)
