How to Enlarge and Shrink Annoying WebsitesI just had an IM from my staff letting me know about a new blog that she likes.  It went something like this:

“HEY! Have you seen this blog?  It's great content, but you have to scroll left or right to read it.”

I quickly went to the blog. Great design.. Great content..

There was no left to right problem with me because I know a simple trick to fix that, and so I'm passing that onto you because when I showed her that trick, I got an “OMG! You're kidding!” type of response.

If you visit a website and you have to scroll left to right to view the content – all you have to do is hold down the CTRL button and press the MINUS sign at the same time.

If you want to enlarge it back – hold down the CTRL button and press the PLUS sign at the same time.

It's a fun solution!  ENJOY!

An even better fix is to hold down the CTRL button and move the wheel on your mouse toward you. To make the page larger move the mouse wheel away. This gives you a little more control of the size than using the -/+.
