I have used the computer for work and researching scleroderma and often want to read articles in very small text. LOL, I have to put my head very close to the screen. Maybe this will help you too.

I have a mouse with a scroll wheel between the right and left click buttons.

Press "contol" key and hold down. Roll your scroll wheel while still holding control key and the letters in the article get bigger (or smaller) as you prefer.

Good luck,

Kathy

Hi Kathy,

My laptop's touchpad has the same capability and it's really helpful. Now I don't have to keep explaining to my hubby that I'm not frowning, I'm only squinting! Posted Image Thanks for posting this!

Thank you, Kathy. I'll have to a get a new mouse, but since one of dogs chewed on the old one I'm probably well overdue!

My eyes thank you as well!

LOL Poet!!

My dogs like to lay under my feet and frequently catch the mouse cord. The mouse hits our floor and breaks. Last year I bought 10 new mouses on ebay for $20 so I can replace them quickly without having to go downtown and pay full price for another one.

LOL, the things we put up with for our pets god love em!
