    I feel stupid for asking, but I was holding my baby on my lap and he hit some button on the keyboard that made the type on the computer screen super tiny. I don't know how to fix it.

    Anyone know what I need to do?

    Do you have a laptop?

    I used to do this with mine when it was new and it was a pain in the neck to figure out how to fix it.

    If it's a lap top, try putting two fingers on the touch pad. Leave one finger stationary while you drag the other finger away from it.

    It's a laptop, but right now I have a monitor, keyboard and mouse plugged into it and I'm using it like a desktop. He hit something on the lower left of the keyboard...the control button and something. Last time he did this, he made the type really big.

    Does your mouse have a scroll button?

    Hold down on Ctrl and scroll up or down with your mouse.

    I think if you look in the bottom right hand corner of your screen you will see: (a number)% next to a little blue magnifing glass, if you click that a few times and get it back to 100 that should fix the problem. I have a lap top too and sometimes the zoom gets messed up when i accendentally brush the track pad while typing. I hope you get if figured out if this isn't it. [​IMG]

    Ctrl + also works to make it larger and Ctrl - to make it smaller.
