When i use the internet the pages that are displayed are very large. I don't mean minimize or mazimize i mean the size of the overall page is huge. Does any body know how to reduce this please. I'm using aol 9.0 on windows xp.

Do you mean that the text is in a large font?

right click an empty part of the desktop, select properties>settings and then move the slider along to 1024 x 768

Or

If you mean the page is to large, then press F11 to have the page back to normal

Increase the resolution to 1280x1024.

That should decrease the size of your whole desktop and anything viewed on it.

Sorry for sounding like a real thicky but how do i do that?

Right click on an empty part of the desktop and select properties. Click on the settings tab and then move the slider along till you get 1280x1024. Click ok. If this doesn't resolve the problem your having, just revert the slider back to where it was, presumably 1024x768.
