I am struggling to complete an on line application form where the "Continue" box is below the bottom margin. There is no side bar to scroll the page up.
Is there a way where I can reduce the page size to make it readable. Regards Carper

Is there a restore down button, if so click it and go to the edge and drag to make the window smaller.
It may work its worth a try.

Maybe press F11.Or put the arrow of your mouse right to the top of the screen and see if the Minus-restore or red x appears if so press the restore button.

View menu and make Text Size smaller - or alternatively hit Enter to Continue

Thanks for your replies, but I am sorry to say that none of them work. The reply by sea urchin comes closest, but as the last page comes up as a new window, it closes when I click onto zoom. Looks like I'll have to do it by phone. Thanks again, Carper

Put your display to a higher resolution - then you'll see more of the relevant window.

Thanks for that DieSse. My present display size is 1024 x 768. When I increased it the pagew was distorted. If I lowered the resolution would that not be better Carper

No - the picture would be bigger, so you'd see less.

The next step up from 1024x768 is 1280x1024 - and yes the aspect ratio is slightly different - but it might do on a temporary basis for the form you have.

Sometimes you can click and drag such pages up a little by doing so on the very bottom of the title bar.

Also try this Hold down the Control key and roll the mouse scroll wheel - this should zoom the whole of the webpage display.

It's pretty poor design to make a form so - but I've seen it all too frequently.

Just a thought - one that may not work. have you tried Page down and Page up keys. So that it scrolls down.

  carper 13:51 28 Feb 2009

Thanks for your replies. I will try them when I do the form again. Forgot to bookmark it. Carper
