font size too small




The font size is too small. It looks like it is set at 1. I need at least size 4 or 5 to be able to read it without leaning in to the monitor. What do I have to do to adjust the font size?

What type of Internet browser are you using? If you use IE, I know that you can personalize the zoom level from 50% up to 400% very quickly.

To do this, look in the lower right hand corner of your browser screen for a magnifying glass. It probably says "100%" right now. Click on it and you will increase the font (zoom) in increments of 25%.

Good luck.

M4finny, thanks but I still need help. I use mozilla firefox and there's no magnifying glass that I can find. This problem is unique to 1911forum.com and only seems to be affecting text. Pictures are full screen.

There should still be a way to adjust font size in your browser. We try to discourage adjusting fonts in the actual posts because it looks like you're shouting over everybody else. Also all hte replies would still be the same small font size anyway. If it truly looks so small that it's hard to read then something must be wrong with your browser settings.

Try not to fall into the common trap of wanting to replace everything on your new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out, and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot it for at least 500 rounds, then decide what you don't like and want improved. Vintage 1911's should NEVER be refinished or modified because it ruins any value they had as a collectible firearm.

Hold the CTRL key down with one hand and SLOWLY scroll the wheel on your mouse up or down for bigger or smaller. This works in Internet Explorer and Firefox.

It also works with CTRL held down and hitting the "+" on the keypad for larger or "-" for smaller
