How to make my fonts smaller

Quick answer - not specifically to change font size, but to change whole screen size
The whole screen size can be magnified (zoom in) by simultaneously pressing CNTRL + ; the reverse operation (zoom out - what you want I think) is performed by CNTRL - (press cntl and + keys simultaneously)

Or change (increase) the resolution of the screen by right clicking a blank a blank area of the desktop and selecting 'screen resolution' in Windows 7 or in XP one the tabs similarly labeled, and increasing resolution if not at max already.

My writing is so small i can't read any thing on my computer because of this i can't read anthing you write back so can someone call me at 901-283-0239

You can increase the size of text by pressing control + or - buttons press control button first. Also there is zoom in the tools section and also you can increase the size of text in the control panel or the web page under tools sections of most browsers. If we new the browser or what you text is small in or even if it was small every where you can change the resolution size of your Windows. Win 7 you can incease text by going to control panel click on display once there go to where it says increase your text size. Not sure what your operating system is either. So assuming it is Win 7 I hope that this assists you. John

My display page suddenly shrunk to so narrow and tiny that it cannot be read. It was like a finger on my right hand grazed one of the control keys. Why would it be made to go so small in the first place?

Screen Problem

Unfortunately the fix is a new lcd. The tab welds at the top of the lcd are not allowing that portion to work correctly. As these tabs are fused to the lcd you will need to replace the lcd. My Toshiba M105 is almost the same.(I Have 4" Gone) on the right side. so to use it I clicked and dragged my system tray from the bottom to the side. And shrunk my web pages to utilize tthe good portion.

I suppose I should replace it but being only 18months old the LCD's run about 160.00 USD.(sometimes I just hook up an external monitor.
