Saving paper by printing small?
« on: November 13, 2008, 04:21:22 AM »
I'm guessing at least half the people here are as old as I am.  I have to use a magnifying glass to read what I'm typing right now.  Some of the tool bar things like "New Topic" are downright microscopic.

Does anyone else have this problem?  Any solutions I might attempt?

Your browser should have an option for making the pages/print larger.  On Internet Explorer 7.0 on the upper right click the drop down screen on Page and select one of the test options.

Can't find one, and the other doesn't do anything.
Thanks, though.  I'll just keep my magnifying glass at the ready.

Ernie,

Try holding the Control Key while hitting the + Key.

"cTRL" is at bottom far left under the "shift" key. ?
"+" key is far right top over "=" to the left of "Backspace"?

Nothing happens.  Like I said- magnifying glass. 
Someone needs to make a video of me holding the glass with one hand while trying to type!

UncleErnie, what OS do you have?

Holding "Ctrl" and pressing "+" or "-" (or using the mouse wheel) works on browsers (IE and Firefox) under XP and Vista. Also, XP has a monitor "magnifier" under "Start / All Programs / Accessories / Accessibility".

This is really funny!  The type on my browser and Google is much bigger now.

I found that magnifier thing, but haven't figured out how to keep it up.  I'll figure it out! 
Thanks ~

Yes using control plus the plus sign makes it bigger... thanks for the tip, I just got out my strongest reading glasses whenever I wanted to reply to this forum!
