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!
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.
