The two new kittens we got a few months ago are very dependent on human interaction and love jumping on the computers. Usually I can catch them in time, but I've had to call helpdesk several times after they've done creative things to my computer.

Well now they did something where some sites I visit have really huge font sizes. Like Jinxworld is fine. It's like 9pt or something which is what all my pages used to look like. But if I go on Drude or Hotmail, the things are 3x the normal size.

Anyone know how I can change the way all the pages look? I feel like I'm reading enlarged print for those who can't see so well.

Hold control and roll the wheel on your mouse up or down and see if the text gets bigger or smaller.

I think this was Freakazoid's origin...

You're thinking of TypeFace...and it was a typewriter...and instead of kittens it was lightning and a vat of mysterious chemicals...and a cosmic sno-cone.

Hold CTRL and hit the "minus" key until the font size is back to normal. (If you go too far, hold CTRL and hit "plus" to go back up.)

Also, you may want to invest in PawSense (http://www.bitboost.com/pawsense/) software.
