FYI, that is new tech for notebook. You can zoom in/out by using finger motion on touchpad. Try to check the sticker nearby touchpad when you take out the notebook from box.

HOW DO I KEEP MY FONT SIZE FROM CHANGING


Font size and Zoom control are controllable on several laptops models and browsers with the combination key-and-mouse combination of CTRL and the mouse Scroll Wheel. If your scroll wheel functionality on your Toshiba laptop is also governed by your touchpad and IF that touchpad is malfunctioning, then whenever you activate the Zoom feature keys (CTRL, "+", or "-" keys), then it is possible to zoom the text on certain browsers or increase the font size in certain MS Office products, like Word.

Replacing the palmrest-and-touchpad assembly might be one possible solution but you might also be able to verify/test for a failing touchpad by deactivating it's scolling feature in whatever Toshiba Mouse Utility software that they installed on the machine or look for it in the touchpad and/or mouse settings in the control panel. If it can be deactivated, and your problem goes away, then you know the touchpad (or its driver) is faulty.

Also, test it in Safe Mode. If the problem does NOT exist in Safe Mode, then your hardware is most likely OK and it's a sofware issue (such as driver, software, or utility).

How can I increase the font in AOL (Firefox), which changed with an update?


For the earlier versions of Firefox, here are the instructions on how to increase your font size:

1)Click on View on the browser Menu Bar.
2)Highlight Text Size with your mouse and notice that you now have 3 choices that will allow you to increase or decrease text size.
3)Increase or Decrease your font size and you will see a change in text size on this web page. You can also hold down <CTRL> and type "+" or "-" to change the font size.
4)Select Normal or <CTRL> and "0" to return to the default text size.


For Firefox Version 4.0

There are 2 ways on how to change the font size of the page that you are viewing.

FIRST OPTION: Changing Font size through the TOOLS Menu:

1)Click on "Tools" on the browser Menu Bar, then click "Options".
2)You will be getting the Options Window Menu to change the settings of Firefox. In this case, since we would want to change the font size, you would need to click on the "Content" tab.
3)On the Content Tab Menu, under "Fonts & Color", you can change the size to whichever size you want.
4)After changing the size, click on the OK button and it should save the changes right away.

SECOND OPTION: Changing Font Size through the VIEW menu:

1)Click on "View" on the browser Menu Bar, then click "Zoom". (There should be a side option that will appear after you highlight Zoom.) Select or put a tick on "Zoom text only".
2)Click on "View" on the browser Menu Bar again, then click "Zoom". (There should be a side option that will appear after you highlight Zoom). This time, you can click on "Zoom In" or "Zoom Out" to play with the desired font size that you want on your browser page.


That simple! I hope this information helps you and if it does, please do not forget to rate me.

Toshiba Laptop spontaneous font size change


Disable the dreadful "pinch-zoom" of the Snyaptics touch pad.
How it is supposed to be used is at
http://www.synaptics.com/solutions/technology/gestures/touchpad . However, I tried these "gestures" and none of it worked on my touchpad.

On Windows7, one can disable this poor excuse for a feature by going to Control Panel->Hardware and sound->Devices and printers->Mouse->Device Settings->Settings [button half-way down, on the right]->pinch zoom. Then uncheck "enable pinch zoom".

New laptop purchase....in using the touchpad, what causes the font to change sizes while viewing a screen - mostly on websites? Once it has changed what is the key to setting it back?


If you are holding control and you use the scroll area on the touchpad (normally the right side), it will adjust the font size. you can do this again to adjust or you can adjust the zoom for the site. If you are using internet explorer, the zoom is located on the bottom right corner of the browser

I"m assuming you're using Internet Explorer. On the menu bar go to "View" then go to "Text Size" and choose the size of text you want on your web pages.

Text and picture size keeps changing size


The the text size in browsers are change if you have a scrolling mouse or if side of your touchpad 'active scroll'. You do it by holding down the "Ctrl" key and scrolling up or down. Make sure you are not accidentally doing that and its the reason for font/pic change. Are you using Outlook? Also try this: In Outlook. click Options on the Tools menu, and then click the Mail Format tab.
Under Stationery and Fonts, click Fonts, and then click International Fonts. Then, select the font size that you want to use in Internet Explorer or Firefox, click Set as Default, and then click OK until you can quit the program. If you are still having issues post here again and we'll go from there.

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.
