Usually shrinkage happens when clicking the round green circle located top-left.
To fix, click on the tiny diagonal bars on the lower-right corner of the window and drag around to obtain the window size you want.
I hope this helps.

I can't open some apps i.e. Walgreens without turning off private browsing. How do I turn that off?

On an Mac or Laptop
Close the Private Browsing window, switch to a different Safari window that isn't using Private Browsing, or choose File > New Window to open a window that doesn't use Private Browsing.

On an iPhone or iPad
Tap the "Safari" icon on the home screen to load the Safari browser. Swipe down on any Web page to display the address bar and navigation buttons. Tap the Panels icon in the bottom right corner of your screen. The Panels icon resembles two small overlapping squares. Tap "Private" to disable private browsing. The device will then prompt you to select whether you want to close or keep open existing Web pages.

How do you reduce the screen size.

  • Launch the Web browsericon1.png on your Mac system. Unless you have changed the home page, the Apple site greets you.
  • 2 Click the green "+" symbol in the upper left corner of the window. This enlarges the window so it takes up the entire screen. If you want to return the window to the former size, click the green "+" again.

    How to view full screen browser

    In short, it's not built in to Safari. You can either install a plug-in for Safari or try a different web browser such as Firefox or Camino.

    Some plugins that may help:
    1. Saft ( adds a new preference pane in Safari called Saft, and two extra menu items under Safari menu, just above the "Preferences...", called "Full Screen" and "Max Screen".
    2. Megazoomer ( will install for any program (not just Safari for web browsing) and allows you to put any window full screen.
    Other browsers to use instead of safari include:
    1. Firefox (
    2. Camino (
    I believe both of those browsers allow for full screen functions.

    My screen has shrunk to the middle of the screen. i have tried the horozontal screen size and theres no difference. this is happening on windows xp

    Simple test: unplug all the cables from the monitor, start it alone and launch the settings window of the monitor. If the image is also shrunk there then the monitor is defective, about to die.
    Take it to repair shop as fast as you can, otherwise it will fail for good and it will be unfixable.

    Screen shrunk and can't be changed?

    It sounds like the display somehow simply got set to a different resolution. Open System Preferences / Displays and choose a resolution that satisfies you.

    Screen shows wrong URL Safari won't load.

    By the way you are stating your issue, I am not sure if you are referring to Safari loading to an incorrect URL and that it is not launching. So to make sure I cover all bases I will provide advice for both.

    If Safari is loading to a URL when you first launch it, assuming you are referring to the URL of the Home page you need to see, all you have to do there is launch Safari, click on the Safari name in the menu, select Preferences.
    * Then under General> "Home page:", make sure the home URL is set to the web address you want to see as your home page.

    If Safari is not launching on the other hand, here is what you need to do in order to resolve that issue:

    font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} • From your desktop,
    •Click anywhere on a blank space on your desktop. Now you should see Finder listed near the Apple menu icon.

    • From the Finder menu, click on Go, then Home from the
    drop-down menu. This will take you to your Home folder.
    • Locate and open the Library folder
    • Within Library folder look for the Preferences folder and open it.

    • Locate and remove to the Trash, these files:
    Now click the back button in the Finder window to go back to the Library view.
    * Locate and remove to the Trash, the folder entitled "Caches"

    * Once you have done that, close all windows and other applications, click on the Apple menu icon and select from the drop down menu Logout<username>.
    This will take you to the main login window
    * simply log back in to the same user account.

    Don't attempt to launch Safari, just yet. Instead run this last procedure to repair file/folder permission on your Mac OS X volume (including Safari)
    font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro} -RUN DISK UTILITY FIRST-

    Go to Finder Menu bar
    • Click Go > Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility app.
    • Click on Macintosh HD volume (or on the name you have changed
    this volume to.)
    • Select "Repair Disk Permissions"
    **Let Disk Utilities run this repair permissions until completion
    - This is not often a necessary step, but in the many of the hands-on software and Mac OS X troubleshooting

    * Once Disk Utility is complete and there are no errors in red in the completion summary (if there are errors listed in red, re-run DU to see if those error will clear- if they don't reply back to this post right away and let me know what the exact error message is), quit Disk Utility.

    • Now relaunch Safari and let's see if it launches ok for you.

    If this is still not resolving the issue you are having with Safari, just let me know.

    Safari tabs not working right

    You should be able to change the settings for that in your options, something like [ open new pages in a new window ] Let me know what you find out, have'nt used Safari in quite awhile, most all later browsers have this option.
