Angry Screwed up my computer! Big printing on the screen.

Big screen printing is a 'hold this down and press ?' I undid it! What's the key strokes???????

ARRRRGGGGG!

Insert profanity.

Default Re: Screwed up my computer! Big printing on the screen.

If its a PC, try hold and press the 'ctrl' key and the dash or minus sign key. May have to do it more than once.

Another way is to go to CONTROL PANEL, then click on 'Ease of access/optimize display(could be called either),' then 'Change size of text and icons.'

If it's an Apple product, I wouldn't have the faintest clue how to fix your problem.

Oh, you want the big print back . . . 'CTRL' key and the plus sign. Repeat for greater magnification.

Sorry.

You can always look the wrong way down the binoculars to get it back to the right size? Duh?

How are you feeling Fred?

Maybe your computer is just trying to tell you you need new glasses?

YES! YES!! YESSSSSS!!!!!!

Bingo! Many thanks! At my age (will be 73 in a couple of days) reading small print is a 'not going to happen.'

For Apple computers hold down the CTRL key and hit the "0" zero number key which is the same as the ")" key. This returns the display to the normal size.

Increase the size of the printing it is CTRL "+", to decrease it is CTRL "-"

Today is starting out as a 'good day.' WG knows I have Parkinson's, a bad day means trouble just trying to walk. Stumble at best. Attempting to drive the Jeep is not going to happen.

Interesting to have 'mind' on 'Good to Go' and the rest of the Bod says 'Not going to happen.' There are 'lots of me's' out there. Sitting in your chair: Shuffle through a fly box with old dog next: 'What do you think?'

'Maybe we can go fishing tomorrow.' 'Mz Turkey' is flaked out on top of our bed.

I've had all kinds of things happen to me, so I know how you feel as I'm pretty close to you 68.
Did my first half day on the flats push poling since the back operation last spring. A little bit sore, but seemed to make it through okay.
A little frustrating, took a friend out fishing, he didn't want to use the lure I told him to, didn't want to cast where he was told, etc. oh well, one little trout caught and released, one fair snook hooked and lost.

I actually didn't get to do much fishing, it's pretty hard to push pole someone around and fly fishing at the same time. Put the pole down and by the time you pick up the rod you've drifted into the mangroves.]]

Fred, come down and fish with me this next winter.

Fred, Fred, Fred, everybody knows that our computers are spying on all of us and that when we reach a certain time in our lives it decides we would benefit from larger print. Just trust your computer and continue to stare at the screen, counting your blessings that Big Brother is watching over you...
