Did you know...

Would you ever guess that I love fall?  Just kidding...

What I wanted to say is this...and is probably most of you know this.  When I had Windows XP, if I was reading something that was hard to read, I could highlight it and then hold the curser over it, and roll the scroll button and it would increase the size of the print.  Well, I had noticed that didn't work with Win7.  I don't remember really thinking about the situation with Vista...so don't know what worked with it.

But the other day I had open something that was hard for me to read, so I googled how to increase the size.

To increase the size of the page you are looking at, hold down the control button and hit the '+' button...you don't have to hold down the shift. 

To shrink/decrease the size of a webpage, hold down the control key and hit the '-' sign.

Of course, you don't use the apostrophes either time....just thought maybe someone might use this.

Misted rain this morn, but finally cleared up this evening.  It will be tempting to get up and take off somewhere tomorrow.

i am sitting here typing on a loaner laptop and it beats me why it is so different. it has Win 7 and is an HP and so is mine, but very different. we all learn new things every day. and it changes with browsers we use. computers are a love/hate relationshp for me

What a gorgeous tree photo! I haven't seen that much color yet. Thanks for the information! I'm still using XP on the desk top computer and didn't know how to do what you said! I have 7 on my laptop, so will try it. I would love to change my desktop computer to 7, but am a little afraid to try to change it....plus the cost of buying 7.

Beautiful tree photo! I can zoom in on my iMac by clicking on "file" at the top of the page, then scroll down and click on "Zoom In". But the Control + didn't work for me.

I love it when a tree looks like it's popping upward or popping out like fireworks. We got the same cold front you did and it's downright chilly today (Friday).
