A button was pushed on my keyboar that shrunk all the font

My 2 yr. old son pushed a key or combo of keys on my keyboard and it shrunk the font on that one page only. It's a page I frequent so it's very frustrating.
I've asked for help from the page tech. support team but they have no good answers.

I am sure I just need to push the same keys my son did, I just have no idea which ones!

Just press "Ctrl" key with "+" plus Key  and both keys should be pressed simultaniously. You can also decreased the font by using "Ctrl" key with "-" minus key

If its an IE webpage , click View , the Text Size then Medium , which is the default setting.

On the particular page , ensure that the zoom setting in the lower right corner (Magnifying glass with a percentage next to it) is on 100% , if not , click the small arrow to the right on it and click 100%

hope this solves your problem

If you are on a windows PC and on the Facebook screen you can use a keyboard shortcut to increase the font size for the page. The keyboard shortcut is to press the Ctrl key and the + key on your keyboard simultaneously until the font increases to the desired size. If the font becomes too large, the Ctrl key and the - key will shrink the text.

I hit the ctrl key and my font shrunk in my g-mail acct. How do I get it back to the original?


you can go to font and change the font altogether .... but i honestly think that when you pressed ctrl you probable accidentally also pushed the - at the same time which shrinks the size of your screen so just press ctrl + and see if that helps

Keys do not work intermittently. Need to remove & clean.


Most travelmates have a couple of clips holding the keyboard in place, if you look at the top of the keyboard there is usually 4 clips that you can gently push back with a screwdriver. Just be carefull of the ribbon cable attached to the keyboard, don't yank it out.

Hi,

If a key is popped up, its better to replace the keyboard instead of trying to put it back on the laptop.

You can call HP they will always replace the keyboard, if the key popped up.

If you dont have warranty you can better buy a new keyboard.

It is better to but a new keyboar, than to give someoone the same money to replace the old one.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
