Question

When I am responding to a thread, etc.. I have no clue as to how to make the print large enough so that I can personally read what I am typing. It makes it difficult to reread or proof read for errors, as I am unable to see what I have typed.

I realize that it is my uhm... handicap? But, is there a 'before I type' thing I can do to make the letters larger?

Right now I can see what I am typing because I have my computer set at 150 magnification.

Thanks,

Your browser should have a setting that allows you to alter the default type size to a larger size.

Thanks wanderer...now can you tell me how do I find the default on my browser?

I know in my yahoo email, I changed the print to large, but then I had to go from right to left to read my email. That was a pain, so I'm glad they came up with the magnification. The only problem with that is that it distorts the print at 150 magnification.

PaulaJane,

You can press the "Ctrl" and "+" (plus) keys simultaneously to make the screen zoom in. "Ctrl" and "-" (minus) to make it smaller. Try it! Smile

I just did the control but can't do the plus... hmm Let me try control shift plus.. Ok, that is done. Oh, maybe this is it? Nope, I just did the 'huge' and it is still the same size.

Maybe I'm just being blonde? Thanks for trying to help me out Madmarc

Of course, after I sent it...and am reading it, it is larger. Now how to change it before I type it, or send it.

Back to the drawing boards...
Confused

PaulaJane,
Sorry, I should have been more specific. Across the top of your keyboard is a row of number keys (numbers with symbols over them). To the right of the zero (0) are two keys, one with a hyphen and minus or underscore and the other with a equal sign and a plus sign. That is the plus key I use. I don't know if the plus key on the numeric keypad will work or not (no numeric keypad on my laptop to test it out on just now). Press and hold the Ctrl key and press the plus key on the top row. See if that works. If it does not work let me know. Maybe we can figure out something else geek
