Hi all

I don't know what I did but everything that is displayed on a webpage, such as this one I'm using now has gone really giant size and I don't know how it happened or how to get it all back to normal. Can anyone help? I am using Windows 7 proffesional. With Google home page. Cheers all.

lowloader,

If you're using Internet Explorer you should see a small box in the bottom right corner of the IE window with a magnifying glass and figure which should be 100%, but is probably 400%. Click on the down arrow to the right of the box and choose 100%.

lowloader,

The possible cause of your problem, if you are using a mouse as opposed to a laptop touch-pad, is pressing the CONTROL Key and Scrolling the Mouse wheel at the same time. One direction of the wheel make thing smaller whereas the other direction make things bigger.
