My windows appear 'zoomed out'. That is, the display has small font sizes and lots of information in each window. This happened 'on it's own' one day when I logged in. How do I zoom it in again and keep it there?

Example 1 - Yahoo email 'inbox' page. The font size of the list of emails in my yahoo email 'inbox', is about 8 (that is very small). In fact it is everything in the 'inbox' window except the adverts. The font size used to be 12 which is bigger and more easily readable.

Example 2 - 'My ebay' summary page. To read the list of 'activities' to choose from on the left of the 'summary page' I have to scroll down for ages until the second activity appears and then scroll down for ages again to get to the third activity and so on. It's as though the summary page was 20 meters long. All the activities used to be on the left when I opened the summary page.

It is as though some setting has changed with out me knowing. I don't know if this is relevant but I think it might have happened after I accepted a Java update.

Thanks for whatever help is offered, Tony

To zoom in and out of a page, hit the CTRL and + (plus) or - (minus) keys.

You can use the + or - keys either above the QWERTY keyboard, or the numerical keypad on the side.
