Hi All.

For some reason, probably me, when I download a site, 1911Census Uk for instance , the font size is huge. It is impossible to use. I cannot see how to make it smaller.

There are 5/6 sites that are like this. I am guessing that whatever has happened is common to all fo them.

Any ideas?. Thanks. PJ

Just tried that. It is at it's smallest now but it will go bigger. PJ

What operating system and web browser are you using?

For example, Windows XP and IE7?

It could be your text size is too large, I think that's what GameJunkie wanted you to fix. Just in case, hit the Alt key to make the menu show if it's not already, go to the View menu, and check the Text Size is normal.

It could be your Zoom level is too high, check the lower right hand corner of the web browser and see if there's a magnifying glass with 100%. If not, try clicking on that and change it to 100%.

It could be your DPI settings. To change this depends a bit on which operating system you're using. Try the other steps first, if they don't work reply with your operating system and we can figure out how to fix the DPI.

If you're on Firefox, try Ctrl+0, to reset the zoom back to default.
