    Hi, could anyone please help?

    The text on our screen (HP Pavilion g6) has suddenly reduced itself to miniscule, and I mean tiny.

    I have been into control panel and altered the text sizes, but it has only made the surrounding text and images eg everything at the top and sides but the actual text is still too small to read! I had this problem before but it seemed to put itself right.

    It is something simple, a combination of keys I have caught or can anyone suggest a solution.

    I know we are getting on but this is really too small to read.

    Try holding the control key, then press the + key.

    edit: Beat me to it. :)

    There's a + and - button on the left hand edge of this keyboard which I sometimes inadvertently catch which does the same job as 'Control +/-' - has caught me out on numerous accasions.

    Weird but on my recent posts on the forum I have also experienced a much smaller font... have tried to adjust the font but with out success.... it is a case of squinting or magnifying glass to read what I had written ... wahayyyy ...

    Did mean to say it is only when I am replying to a post that the font is very small
