Re: My font is too big in my Facebook and email. I think I must of hit a shortcut key

Hi Freeway,

 

You didn't mention what kind of browser you are using - there are so many!  Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome...

Here are a couple of fixes directed at two popular Browsers, Internet Explorer and FireFox.

 

A quick fix: 

 

Make Text larger          Cntrl key and (Control key and the plus key at the same time)

Make Text smaller        Cntrl key and (Control key anbd the dash key at the same time)

 

 

Internet Explorer 9 -- Text Size

  • Open a webpage of your choice
  • In Blue area at the top of IE, in a "free", uncluttered area >  Right-Click > Check "Menu Bar"
  • View > Text > Select Size

 

FireFox- Text Size

  • Open any webpage
  • Along the top edge, inside the border, at the top of FireFox, in a "free", uncluttered area >  Right-Click > Check "Menu Bar
  • View > Zoom > Select Zoom size and/or Zoom Text

Sometimes "X" really does mark the spot!

Hi CleoKatina,

 

See my previous post.  You might find something similar in your AOL email to the settings that are shown.  Maybe Facebook, too.  ??  

 

You should be able to use this next fix regardless.  It is "keyboard" centric, that is, it is not tied to an App.

 

 

The quick fix: 

 

Make Text larger          Cntrl key and  (Control key and the plus key at the same time)

Make Text smaller        Cntrl key and  (Control key anbd the dash key at the same time)

 

 

 

It is my pleasure to assist.
