Question about Gateway MX6920 Notebook

1 Answer

Autoscroll When I am viewing a web page, well any window with a scroll bar really, and I use the scroll bar on the screen to scroll up to the top, then move my mouse to the middle of the page the scroll bar moves to the bottom. I have contacted gateway tech support and they had me download a driver that made my mouse pad not work at all, which was very frustrating considering my mouse it like my hand and without it I am nothing.

    I tried messing with the mouse settings and they didn't affect the scrolling thing. I also had to do a system restore when my mouse quit working. Thanks though!

Try simply using a system restore to before the problem started acting up. Also, you can try going into the mouse properties (Start Menu, Control Panel for Xp) and look for scrollsettings there, which may allow you to turn off certain mouse features (aka. if gestures are enabled it might be conflicting with scrolling).
Hope this helps.

Gmail problems small fonts to small


Reduce / Increase Text Size on My Gmail

Between the message list, search bar, labels and chat window, GMail's web interface displays a lot of information.

If your web browser is displaying all of these items in a large font, they may not fit comfortably on your screen.

Fortunately, you can easily change your web browser's text size on Gmail to ensure that all of the components fit.

Alternatively, you can use a special GMail Labs feature to change the default text size for all of the emails that you compose.

Navigate to your GMail inbox in your web browser.


Hold the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard and press the "-" key. Your web browser will shrink all of the text on the current web page.

You can repeat this step to shrink the text even more.

Hold "Ctrl" and press "+" to increase the text size if you shrink it too much.
Gmail Default Font

Navigate to your GMail inbox and click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen.
Select "Labs" from the drop-down menu.
Scroll down to "Default Text Styling" and click "Enable."
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes."
Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen and select "Mail Settings." Click the "TT" icon in the "Default Text Style" section. Select "Small."

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes." Your new email messages will automatically use GMail's small text size.

File, tools, view, help has disappeared. can you help me bring them back


Well, this is not really a router question, and I am assuming you are referring to your web browse page when you say what you are missing. To return them, simply right click in the area at the top of the screen, the enable the Menu Bar and things should be ok again.

Adjust text size in web browser


If your are using Internet Explorer 9 then you can adjust the browser text size by clicking on View then Text size in the Menu bar.

If you don't see the Menu bar, then right-click your mouse on the top of the browser window (above the page tabs) and you will see a drop-down menu open - select Menu bar from this menu list and this will open under the address bar box.

For Google Chrome you would click on the Spanner icon near the top right corner of the browser, then use the Zoom controls to increase or decrease the magnification of the web page content. You can also use View and Zoom in IE9 if you prefer.

There will be similar controls / options in other web browsers.

How to change print size


The printer prints whatever it's told to by the computer. Your printer really doesn't control the fonts.

When you are printing stuff from the internet (web pages, email, etc.) the reason for the small print is that it is related to the size of the monitor and it's viewing setup (the higher the screen resolution, the smaller the print will be when printing it out even though it looks good on the monitor).

One way you can make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet Explorer), click on "View," then "Text Size" then select a size like "Larger" or "Largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to.)

Another method is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "File" then "Print Preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "Shrink To Fit" in it. Click the arrow for a drop down list and choose something probably above 90% or more (maybe 100 or 125%) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out.

The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like Word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.

My taskbar does not appear when I am viewing web pages


It sounds like you have your task bar set to auto hide. I'm not too familiar with this brand of laptop but if you are using windows you should be able to follow these instructions to fix this. If you know how to get to the control panel (start menu) and click on appearance and themes there should be a task bar and start menu icon there. Click on that icon and select how you want your task bar to be displayed.
