web site printed too small

by BrianSloss / April 26, 2013 4:07 AM PDT

There is one web site I visit regularly that on one computer I use the text and everything on the page is loading microscopically small. Any other computer I use, this is not the case. Also, the computer with the small text, it only occurs on the one web site. Any ideas?

On any web site if the text is too small, just hold down the CTRL key and press the + key. You can do that multiple times until you get the right size. OTOH if you get one that's too big, you can shrink it with CTRL-.
Good luck.

CTRL+Scroll Up/Down with the mouse also works to adjust the text size on Windows computers.
