Glad you have adjusted it ok, but if it comes back next time you boot up the best bet is system restore.

Thankyou, tried all of them but the best result was with Ctrl and plus and minus buttons.

Thanks to you all

You can also use the Ctrl and plus or minus keys to zoom in or out

Have you gone full screen maybe.

Try F11 button

Could also try the escape button

At the bottom right hand corner of the screen is a number % with a magnifying glass that is the zoom level, which should normally be 100%, and can be adjusted up or down.

Hope that makes sense, I'm not very computer savvy.

For some reason my page has gone slighly bigger than my screen so I have to use the bar at the bottom to read things on the edges.

Tried a few things but it just seems to make the printing smaller which I don't want.

Any ideas?
