screen size
« on: February 21, 2007, 09:58:52 AM »

You can tell how far gone I am technologically speaking by the fact that it took five minutes of searching to figure out how to start a new post.
My computer turned up its toes this morning. No doubt about it, the poor thing is not going to be resurrected.
I haven't lost much of anything, I  hope. A lot of photos, but I'm such a pitiful photographer that any picture I've ever taken that was any good, I've emailed to everybody I know, so they're out there. I'm using a borrowed laptop at the moment.
Yes, i'm getting to my question: why is it on newer computer screens some (most) websites come out occupying about half the screen space and tiny? Is there anything I can do about it? I've tried everything I can think of and nothing seems to make a difference. It doesn't strike me as an improvement.
On a related note, I am now forced into buying my very own laptop. Any suggestions? Cheap ones? Yes, I know, there are no cheap laptops. Least expensive, then.
Thanks in advance.

My current version of MSInternet Explorer features, down in the lower right hand corner, a "100%" symbol, adjacent to a little black triangle.  I never noticed it before, so maybe it's new?  Anyway, when I click on the triangle, it lets me choose the zoom level of the screen.  If I set it for less than 100%, the screen shrinks and the "100%" symbol changes.  Maybe you can use this technique to obtain a zoom level more to your liking.

Books by Byron and Kay McAllister can most easily be obtained as e-books or in print from the publisher at http://www.writewordsinc.com/ For "Undercover Nudist," the print version is an improved version of the ebook version. The others are the same in both formats.
