by the way
Sometimes just restarting your browser will do the trick (if you haven't saved any changes).

I'm no expert, but if I get a blip I use System Restore, and mostly it works|

I would not use system restore just yet(you would lose any downloads you have made since the last restore point was created).

However that would almost certainly fix it.

Hi Sammy,

I mostly use Opera and occasionally Firefox and the text size in a browser window can easily be changed by holding down the key whilst moving the mouse wheel. Forward increases the size and backwards decreases it.


Hope that helps.

John(from Arran) missed out the word Control.
should read;
..holding down the control key whilst moving the mouse wheel.

Sorry didn't notice. I had typed it in angle brackets and it disappeared. Let me try again:

Hold down the <CTRL> key whilst moving the mouse wheel. Forward increases the size and backwards decreases it.

Thanks to all for your advice. I use IE.
John, thanks for reminding me about the mouse wheel method. I used it years ago and had since forgotten all about it. Still works a treat.

Night all.

In both Firefox and IE the following keyboard shortcuts work:

increase size: CTRL and +
decrease size: CTRL and -
Reset to 100%: CTRL and 0

On my laptop the reset in IE only works with the 0 on the main keypad, not the one on the numeric keypad.
