If part of the web page is not visible on the screen, you may have accidentally dragged it off to the side. Click the green button at the top-left corner of the web page to resize the window to fit on the screen.
If your screen resolution is set to 800 x 600 or less, most web pages won't fit on the screen. If possible, increase resolution to at least 1024 x 768 in System Preferences > Displays.
You may have accidentally hit Command (Apple key) and the plus sign (+) key -- this makes the text bigger. To reduce text size, hit Command and hyphen (-) key.
Finally, if Zoom is turned on in the Universal Access setting, you be looking at only part of the screen -- zoomed in like using a magnifying glass. Hold down Command (Apple key) and ALT key and hyphen (-) to see if this is on -- it will unzoom (zoom out) by one step. Turn this off or on in System Preferences > Universal Access.
I hope that helps.

The Denver posts print is too small to read


Hi Marsha.
Just press the command key (cmd) and while holding the command key press the plus sign (+) and your text should be enlarged. If it still is to small, repeat ;-) To reduce size use the minus (-). To get back to standard view press zero (0) all while holding the command key.

Hope this is what you where looking for :-)

Macbook screen is zoomed or magnified too much. How do i reset it?


Accessibility Zoom?

If everything is messed up and not just one app, you may have managed to switch on accessibility features and triggered the zoom. Does the screen scroll around as you move the cursor?
As all of the controls are customisable, some things may not work but try <option><command><minus> to zoom out.
Go to System Preferences and select Accessibility. Choose Zoom on the left and uncheck 'Use keyboard shortcuts to zoom' and 'use scroll gesture...'.

Otherwise, some of the other suggestions should help.

I want to make Google my home page. It disappeared. I don't want Ask.


If you tell us what browser you are using we may be able to tell you how to make Google or any page your home page.
Let us take Firefox.
Open your Firefox browser
In the Search bar at the top on the right, type in Google and click the search button (the icon of a magnifying glass)

Here is what you might see. In this case the first link is to google.ca (where the search originated)

9f457ed0-a969-419c-b324-691844b98711.png

Click the first link to see something like this


fba0ea2f-ad97-4f0a-b666-3ce56693bec9.png
This is the actual (current page). If this what you want as your home page, do not enter any search keyword and let the page remain the current one.
Now look at the menu bar at the top of the Firefox window for the TOOLS menu. Click Tools, ad locate submenu OPTIONS

02dfa278-498b-48e3-a194-39b7cf19a33f.png

Click the OPTIONS submenu. A tabbed window opens. Click the GENERAL tab. This is what you see.

0ec8e2fc-b793-4b3d-9212-47d06cead6d7.png

You see the three buttons Use Current Page, Use Bookmark..., Restore Default.
Now since the Google page is your current page (in the browser) click the button Use Current page and click the OK button at the bottom.
The Use Bookmark... gives you an alternative to selecting the Home Page. You could bookmark a specific page that you discovered while browsing and use it at a home page.
If anything goes wrong, you can still restore the default home page, probably chosen by the manufacturer.

I assume you are talking about ads displayed in your web browser. Typically, web sites look at your cookies file to determine what ads to send to your computer. If your cookies are disabled, you'll get random ads. If not, you'll probably get ads based on your recent searches or browsing through merchant web sites.

Cookies are coded data strings that are sent to you web browser's cookies file when you open a page. Web servers use them to save passwords or preferences you may have set up for the site, determine whether you have visited the site before, or predict what you may be interested in seeing based on pages you have visited. For example, if you are setting up an internet purchase, the merchant's site will put a cookie on your computer to identify your shopping cart.

To manage your cookies in Safari, open Preferences... in the Safari menu and click on the Security button.

My Macbook Pro is skipping and freezing. It commonly happens when I am using Itunes or Safari. It never happened before a few days ago. I continue getting a 20 second "spinning beach ball" where...


Safari Reset

The Safari web browser stores a large amount of information as a result of your browsing. This not only includes cache and cookies but also saved names and passwords, download history, search keywords, browsing history and more. There is a very quick and painless way to remove all of these things and return your Safari browser to its default state. Before doing this, please be sure that you definitely want all of this information to be erased.

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: Less than 1 Minute

Here's How:

1. Open your Safari web browser by clicking on the Safari icon in the dock.

2. Click on Safari in your Safari menu, located at the top of your screen.

3. A drop-down menu will now appear. Choose the option labeled Reset Safari....

4. A warning dialog will now appear detailing the items that will be removed.

5. Click the button on the dialog labeled Reset to complete the process.
Your Safari browser will now restart automatically.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I have a mac and I can't load my facebook page at all and my youtube is not able to play video although I can still open the page.


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.


Depending on your web browser, you first should clear the Cache of the select web browser and then reset the browser.

I would also recommend you try this simple procedure I am providing you from MacOSX.com forum regarding the inability to launch or load Facebook:
Link: Cannot Load Facebook on my Mac


In regards to video suggest you try, depending on the web browser you have (Safari or Firefox) is to check the Add-ons of that browser, for any updated plug-ins for viewing Youtube videos.

If you are accustomed to using just one browser, experiment with different browsers.

The most commonly used web browsers for Mac OS X are:

* Safari (Built-in web browser from Apple direct)

* Firefox (Developed by Mozilla)

* Camino (Developed by Mozilla)

* Opera (Developed by Opera Software)

For your current web browser, if you want to keep working on the video playback for your Youtube, you should clear the Cache of the web browser and reset your browser.

These are some general practices to resolving the stated issues you are having with launching Facebook and loading YouTube videos.

Let me know if this helps.

Regards,

Typically, to adjust the font size within a browser, you would press command and the "+" plus key to increase the font size within the browser. You can also access it through the top menu bar by going to "View" then down to "Text Size" and doing that until you're satisfied.
