    Giant screen

    When I click on any internet options from the start screen (google, facebook, etc) the screen it takes me to is gigantic, just the word 'google' fills the whole screen. I am sure I've had this problem before, but can't remember how I fixed it and I've run out of options that I thought might work Help please

    Probably because you the zoom setting in your browser is set too high.

    Thanks Guccii - I couldn't find the zoom anywhere last night, but it's now fixed. I'll have to make a note ready for next time it decides to do it (no idea why it did) - love your cat

    I had tried CTRL 0 as I had a vague recollection on this, but for whatever reason, that had no effect.

    Thanks everyone
