    Default i need help, suddenly all my fonts are real tiny and annoying..

    I log on today and the first page i open up to is facebook and the font is all tiny and different. I thought maybe it was just facebook but then when I came here it was the same thing. I don't know what happened, I haven't changed any font preferences or anything. The only thing I can think of remotely doing anything, is yesterday I went into my Control Panel, Internet Options and deletes all my internet temporary files.. but nothing changed after I did that, so I have no idea what happened.

    I went to look at the font preferences I have - both for the internet and then also my theme for my computer and nothing seems to be changed. The font I am seeing is different than what I have selected too, so it's not making any sense to me.

    I would really love some help, since it's driving me batty and quite frankly, even though I don't have seeing problems, the font isn't exactly viewer friendly.

    Note, if this makes a difference, EVERYTHING is smaller - the pictures, the smilies on here, the icons/avatars , everything, it's like it all went down a couple sizes.


    I hope someone can help me! I've only been online a couple minutes and it's already driving me up the wall

    Do you have a mouse scroll bar?

    Click somewhere on the page, not a link/picture, just a blank spot, push CONTROL and scroll up or down on the mouse and the font should change sizes.

    No, unfortunately I am on a laptop with one of those touchpad mouses with buttons that you push on the bottom of the touchpad. When I do a right click on a blank spot I don't get anything that says control to come up. I know what you're talking about though, that would be helpful if I had a mouse like that.

    also, if it makes a difference I'm on Windows Vista Home Basic..

    Left click on a blank part of the page, push Control and try the the touch pad thing that makes you go up or down on the page.

    I'm totally confused.. I try left clicking and I get nothing, if I right click I get a drop down menu of options to click but none of them say Control. I don't know what button you are asking me to push - CTRL? I tried that and that didn't work either.

    Yeah I just replied to your PM.. I don't have a computer that does what you're talking about, I have seen computers like that but my laptop has never done that. WHen I hit CTRL and try to scroll down, nothing happens. Thanks for trying though.

    that's for firefox, if you are on IE, look at the bottom left corner of the browser and you'll see a little magnifying glass with a % next to it, click the down arrow and pick 100%

    Thanks, you were on the right track! The Zoom was on the 100% already but then I saw the Text SIze under that and clicked on it and just bumped it up to the next text size.. and BAM - back to normal! Well, I should say Nookboards seems to be back to normal but not Facebook.. and neither is my Xanga.. this is just weird!! ugh!!
