Hi,

I'll introduce the situation:
My laptop runs Windows Vista and that's my internet machine. While I was visiting the AutoDocs page over at Hyperion's, which was in quite a good shape and perfectly readable, my cat stepped on the keyboard, making sure it got all the attention it wanted.
When he was done, it appeared he had hit a key-combo which reduces the size of the characters, so I would be hard (very hard!) pressed to read anything. And here I sit, having absolutely no clue how to reset charactersize back to normal. I even tried to fool the machine by closing the tab and reopening the page on a new tab, but it outsmarted me for once.

How can I reset charactersize? Please?

OldFart

@OldFart

What internet browser you use? Is anything smaller (including pictures) or text only?

I'm using Chrome and as the AutoDocs-pages at Hyperion's (realy horrible, inaccessible site btw) is a text-only afair, I can only state that text has been affected.

You can change the zoom factor by holding down the Ctrl key while you roll the mouse wheel.

@Thomas & LarsB

Thank both of you! It works.

I'm glad there are people around here having knowledge about that excuse for a computer.

@OldFart

Ctrl and 0 on the num pad usually resets the zoom level in most "chromium" based browsers (Chrome, Edge, FireFox).

Ctrl + "+" or Ctrl +"-" on num pad also increas or decrease zoom levels respectively.
