    Hi, I searched for this, but couldn't follow the directions given...

    Is there a way to increase the size of the letters, font size, of the website(s) you are viewing? I'm squinting, getting all up close and personal with my moniter, :) etc.

    Could try seting the text size large in View > Text Size ( assuming your using IE )

    also hold the control key down and move your mouse wheel if you have a weeled mouse!

    It was already set to largest, but I tried playing with it anyways, and it didn't seem to do anything... ??

    Also, the wheel thing didn't seem to either. :[

    This might be a good money maker for some programmer, to try and make either a magnifier, or a whole screen increaser/magnifier for people to use... Just make it and take donations from people who use it. $$$$$$ :)

    There is a magnifier just go to start/ all programs / accessory's for the increase in the text just go in IE/ view and click on text size largest see if this helps

    Ah, shit. I was messing with the accessability wizard, and I set it where the minimize, close, large/small window (uppermost right of screen) are now very small, and I can't get them back, and I don't even remember setting them to be small. Any help?

    I did manage to get the text bigger, though. It's in the accessability wizard.


    I'm on XP.
