Helpster helpster! For the past couple of days, every webpage I open has tiddly wee text. On my laptop, it's possible to augment (or diminish) it by using thumb and finger on the mouse pad, and equally, it's possible to go into the toolbar section entitled "Page", then "Zoom", but it doesn't retain the memory of the update. Nor does Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display seem to do the trick.

I haven't a clue how this started, but if anyone can advise me on how to get it back to a decent size and stay there, I'd be very grateful, as I'm going gently loopy about it all!

Thanks.

I use Firefox and going to tools....options...content gives an option to set the text size.
Hope this helps

'fraid not.

I think I'm getting it sorted and then a page comes up with mini text again, and it's persisting with e-mails too...

So if we all type in nano text, we can say what we like about Original A1 and she won't know about it!! Wink

Nice one Dave, but my eyesight is still up to caching standard (just), and therefore still up to seeing tiddly text standard too - I think!

Thanks SB and LAE - for some perverse reason, it usually only applies now to my e-mails, and of course, having just opened the page, it was normal again. Bet it changes tomorrow, but on the basis that it appears to be "fixed", I ain't going to break it again!!

Will bear the solutions in mind (apart from being a laptop, I don't have a mouse wheel...).

Very Happy

No worries. Don't tell my computer, but things seem to be "normal" again today (whatever "normal" is)!

Yippeee and thanks for the advice!

Cyberbeers for all.
