My site pages have become to large to fit on my screen.

A few days ago, my site pages, including the Comcast home page, suddenly became too large to view completely on my 19'' screen. To see the whole page, I have to scroll to the right. That has also happened on this ''FixYa'' tech support page. Any ideas/

This most likely one of two things.
Either you have changed your screen resolution (can be adjusted by right clicking on desktop and changing settings - exact options vary depending on OS)
Or you may have accidentally activated your browsers zoom function try pressing "ctrl" and "-" to zoom out or "ctrl" and "+" to zoom in.

Hi this sounds like your resolution has set back to a smaller setting, ie 640x480 or something in that region, you need to right click on your screen anywhere apart from an icon, go to properties, then settings , look for the resolution setting and change it to a higher one, that should do the trick, dont forget to save the settings or it will revert back to the older one again hope this helps if not repost and i will see if there are other things ok..cheers

How do I make my screen size smaller? It just became huge suddenly

You likely zoomed in with control-scroll up/down, try control-scroll to zoom back out. If only the font (not the windows) got larger, reset font view size with apple-0 (command-zero). HTH.

My home page is not repsonding

You have to be more specific. Any web site can be a home page. If you're referring to the "home page" for a specific ISP (i.e. Comcast) you may have to get with them. If it's a generic web site like Hotmail or Yahoo or Google, make sure you haven't blocked the web site, or have a firewall that prevents you from seeing it.
