    Using a PC. Must have done something, but I don't know what. Logged on to RJ, and the entire screen is now about 2/3 normal size - meaning very tiny type. This is the only website this happens on. All other websites appear in normal size.

    ?

    Suggestions for a fix anyone?

    On your keyboard, press and hold the CTRL key. Then hit the number 0. Then let go.

    So just an explanation, for those that are curious. All web browsers have a zoom feature. Pretty handy for people that have sight issues. Or when websites use really annoyingly small and hard to read fonts. Or when you're presenting something with a projector and you need to zoom in on something.

    Press and hold CTRL key. Then hit the - key.
    This makes the font smaller with each press of the - key

    Press and hold CTRL key. Then hit the + key.
    This makes the font larger with each press of the + key

    For faster zooming, press and hold the CTRL key and move your mouse scroll wheel up or down.

    To reset the zoom, do CTRL 0.

    LOL. I don't do desktop support. The questions I get from clients are a bit more complex, and code related.

    I actually answer those types of questions for my co-workers. It blew me away when a few guys on my team didn't know that middle-click on a link will open it in a new tab. Also, one guy didn't know that he could delete whole words by using CTRL+Backspace. icon_eek.gif

    Yeah, I knew that that's why I asked. icon_biggrin.gif

    Ctrl+click also opens a link in a background tab; I learned that not long ago when I was complaining to a former coworker that Chrome always opens links in the same tab. With FF I use Tab Mix Plus and have it set to always open links in a new tab unless the links go to the same site.
