View Full Version : Trouble with Fonts on websites
09-24-2001, 01:24 PM
I have no clue what is going on with my computer but whenever I enter a website, the site loads huge (Font size and everything). I am not talking about the window size, because the relationship of the image to the window stays constant, even when I maximize it (I have to scroll to the left and right). Anyone have any suggestions?

hold down ctrl and move your mouse wheel :)
at least, that's typically the cure

can you take a screen shot and post it so we have a better idea what you're talking about?

Thanks - the control and mouse wheel thing actually worked. What exactly caused this to happen anyway? I know I have never hit control and the mousewheel before.

it's actually a feature built into windows that you seldom see written down. it'll zoom in quite a few windows apps. give it a try in the office suite.
it'll work on web pages too, with the exception of sites that are using pixels to define the height of text and other elements. pixels are fixed and can't be zoomed, unlike points, em, and %'s.
so, there ya go! more than you probably wanted to know, but what the hell, i gotta use this stuff somewhere.. :)
