Too big!

Can anyone suggest why the screen on my laptop has suddenly become too big when I use the internet? I am with BT, and don't know if they have made changes recently, but the font size is so big I can read it without glasses, and the page size is off the screen, so playing games on Sporcle is impossible. Any ideas, please? I have tried altering the font (no change) and it's fine when I am just working off-line. I may have to contact BT, but don't want to - they keep you waiting so long!
Thanks for your interest, and for any help you may give me.

After sending my request for help, I just played around with the toolbar and came across a button which altered the "zoom". It was set to 195%, so no wonder the screen was so huge.
I have altered the size on the bar to 100% and all is returned to normal, thank goodness.
Thanks for listening!

dahlia, mine does that as well. My finger must slip onto it and it suddenly expands. It's easy to change back - you'll know the next time. smile

Some browsers provide a zoom faculty using the '+' and '-' keys on the numeric key-pad, which can take one by surprise... (others require the Ctrl key to be combined with the + or -)
