Bigger is Better

since my arms aren't long enough anymore i wear reading glasses.     here's my suggestion    make the pages bigger. the font too. the other cog site fills my screen  + i don't need my glasses. i looked in the preference section but didn't see a way to make the page fit the screen. this one not even 2/3 full. it's not my pc or screen. everthing else fits except this site.   My wallpaper    This site    Other site

You don't appreciate a lot of stuff in school until you get older. Little things like being spanked every day by a middle aged woman: Stuff you pay good money for in later life.

Jack, have you tried holding down your Ctrl button and turning the scroll wheel on your mouse?  That will change the font size, perhaps that simple fix will do it for ya!  Mike B / Gig Harbor, WA

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

GPz, I had the same problem. Thanks for posting the question.    And thank for the replies. I thought I had set my text size to largest in IE-7 but I guess it changes with each site.    Yuma,  Summer in Yuma is not hell, but hell is a local call :-)  2006 Connie http://community.webshots.com/user/Lateck?vhost=community

Depends on the website. If it's not set up to react based upon the viewer's display resolution, it'll most likely be set to look best at the developer's resolution. That's how you end up with what a woman I contract for refers to as 'mice type' for a font.
