Web page type will not fit my computer screen

by cnetuser55 / November 15, 2008 2:48 PM PST

The type is too large for my web page to fit in my computer screen. Reducing the type to 75% does not solve my problem. Could this be a driver problem? My computer uses Windows XP Home

Every web page?

If not, which web page. Perhaps we could have a look.

If it is every web page then perhaps your screen resolution is set too low. Goto Display in the Control Panel, (or right click any empty space on the desktop and select Properties), then the Advanced tab, and try increasing the screen resolution, one step at a time.

Changing the screen resolution did the trick. Thank you very much, Mark.
