Help! My screen shrunk!

I've accidentally held the mouse wheel down somehow {I've done that before but always caught it and reversed the rotation before it was "permanent".} and shrunk the size of the font on this site. None of the other windows are affected so changing it via the control panel isn't going to work. I've tried logging on and off ~ no luck.

So, how do I get it back?

Edited to add: Hey! Somehow I managed to get the size corrected so my need isn't quite so urgent. I would, however, like to know what happened and how to correct it without relying on serendipity.

CTRL+ and CTRL- will increase or decrease, respectively, the font size on your browser page. Pressing CTRL while moving the mouse wheel will do the same.CTRL 0 will reset it to the default size.

Cool! I knew there was some combination of keys to make this happen but I couldn't remember what it was. By the way, my hand was nowhere near the CTRL key ~ this was all mouse-caused ~ but that's good to know.

Now to just remember this the next time it happens.

A thank you from the good little witch.

Sometimes the Zoom Level controls in the lower right corner of the screen is useful for us people who never bothered to learn the keyboard shortcuts.


Looks like a magnifying glass with a +sign in it.

yeah, that only works on text...

that square in the top right or holding the left click button with the cursor on the edges or top works most of the time.

If all else fail...restart.

The heart is devious above all else; it is perverse— who can understand it? -- Jer. 17:9

There are many systems of philosophy and political life which try to base law and all human relationships upon the nature of man. Man is made the measure of all things. All such systems, whether communism or humanism, or socialism, are doomed to fail because of one fatal flaw: they do not recognize the sinful, self-centered nature of man.
They ignore God and deify man.

Next time use cold water and tumble dry on fluff.

That's the wisest advice I've received in quite some time.

It sounds like your computer is in need of a minor hardware upgrade.

After installing this, your screen should be able to maintain size.
