    If you look on Internet Explorer at the top you will see the word View, if you click that and select the option "Text Size" and choose a Larger size it might help... if you don't use Internet Explorer maybe someone else here can tell you where that particular adjustment can be found on other browsers. I hope this helps [​IMG]

    For any webpage, you can hold down the control key on the keyboard(lower left hand corner w/ Ctrl on it), and use the scroll on the mouse to change the font size.

    1) hold Ctrl on keyboard
    2) use scroll button on mouse (move up and down to adjust)

    I am not familar with Vista but try this... go to START and PROGRAMS then find ACCESSORIES and then ACCESSIBILITY... if you click ACCESSIBILITY WIZARD it will walk you through some steps to enlarging what you see on your screen. IF Vista is like the other versions of Windows... I hope this helps [​IMG]

    I simply went to the top of the page and clicked on view,( next to favorites) and then clicked on text size and changed to largest.

    Simple as can be.

    Thank you ladies. Somehow I had managed to "zoom out". How I did that, I have NO idea. [​IMG] Thanks again, and thanks for the welcome! [​IMG]
