Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Yesterday I was printing out an email and the screen lightly blinked and all the buttons at the top went away. (i.e., file, edit, view, help, etc.) All that's left is Smiley, Screensaver, Cursor, Ecards, Bookmarks, Settings, Address, Calenday, My Web, Mail, My Yahoo, etc.) How can I get the buttons restored at the top like it used to be?

Try right clicking on the toolbar you can see, and you should get a list of available toolbars. The unchecked ones can be turned on, and you should get back to what you had.

If something is failing on your monitor which stretched the screen, shutdown the computer with the start button, and power off the monitor. Restart everything and see if that resolves the problem.

Increase the Font Size in Email
Email font size is easily controlled while composing messages, but the messages you receive have been sized by the sender.
Some contacts may be perfectly comfortable writing in size 8, but such text can be a strain on the eyes, even with good reading glasses.
The printed hard copies of email messages with small text are even more difficult to read.
There are a few ways to quickly change font size for ease of reading and better quality print-outs.

Open an email message with particularly small text. Increase the email font size of the text using step 2, 3 or 4.
Click on the "View" selection from the menu bar.
Roll the mouse pointer over the "Zoom" choice.
Click on one of the choices that is greater than 100 percent.
Click "View" and cover "Zoom" to make a larger choice if the first choice does not increase the text size sufficiently.


Click the "View" option on the menu bar. Roll the cursor over the "Text Size" selection.
Choose one of the options that will increase the text size.
For instance, if the current size marked with the dot is "Medium," then click "Larger" or "Largest" to make the print appear bigger.

Use a mouse with a wheel to increase the email font size.
Press and hold the "Ctrl" key while rolling the wheel on the mouse.
The text will shrink as you roll in one direction, and grow bigger as you roll in the other.

Change font size before printing.
Click the "File" option on the menu bar.
Click "Print Preview."
Click the "Size" drop down which may display "100%," or "Shrink to fit."
Select a choice greater than 100 percent to increase text size.
Click the "Print" button to view the results on a hard copy.

Change font size in e mail


The printer prints whatever it's told to by the computer. Your printer really doesn't control the fonts.

When you are printing stuff from the internet (web pages, email, etc.) the reason for the small print is that it is related to the size of the monitor and it's viewing setup (the higher the screen resolution, the smaller the print will be when printing it out even though it looks good on the monitor).

One way you can make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet Explorer), click on "View," then "Text Size" then select a size like "Larger" or "Largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to.)

Another method is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "File" then "Print Preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "Shrink To Fit" in it. Click the arrow for a drop down list and choose something probably above 90% or more (maybe 100 or 125%) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out.

The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like Word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.

I lost file, edit, view ,history ,etc; and it doesn't show previous page or next page in upper left corner.What did I do to hide all of this?


I am assuming this is a problem with Internet Explorer. To fix this, move you mouse to an empty part of a toolbar near the top (But not right at the top) of the screen.

Right-click and you should see a drop-down menu, left click on "menu bar" and you should see you file,edit, view history buttons reappear.

Re: my new LG Ally phone.... I downloaded a system update and an app called ThinkFree Office a week ago. I have gone to ThinkFree Office and can't figure out what it does. The real problem I have though is...


ThinkFree Office is an app that will allow you to view and edit files in various Microsoft Office formats. The version that comes with the Ally is a premium version that can handle both the "old" file types as well as the new ".docx" etc. It lets you view and edit your Office files on the go on the phone.

As for the downloading indicator, have you rebooted the phone? Try turning it off, waiting about 30 seconds and then turn it back on. You can also try dragging down the menu bar (place your finger on it and swipe down) and then pushing the "Clear" button that appears.

How do I get file (print) on tool bar?


Hi there,
A lot of these new programs don't seem to have the File / Edit / View / Help (Etc.) tabs anymore. You can try pressing the Alt button to see if these commands come up. If they don't, there should but a button you can click in the top left corner.
Print will either be one of the main categories in there, or a sub-category under "File". Since you didn't provide the software application are using I can't get much more specific than that. I hope this helps though.

How do I alter my font size when printing emails?


I would say the best thing to do is bring up the emails in a word document, then you can change the size of the font by highlighting all the text then change the size of the font by using the top toolbars below the save, edit etc... buttons.

Hope this helps!

Can't print an email


  1. Open up Yahoo your Email, (either Classic or new version) click on your Inbox to view messages.
  2. Double click (or click on the subject line to open if using Yahoo email classic) the message that contains the desired message or photo you wish to print.
  3. Locate and click the "printer icon" (the picture looks like a printer) on the top of Yahoo email or go to the File menu at the top of your web browser and click "print."

    If you are using Yahoo email classic, they have a selection (once you are inside of an email message) on the top--to the right of the screen that allows you to click "printable view."

    A new window will open up and your entire email will appear. Click "print," which is underlined, at the top right of the screen.
  4. A dialog box will pop up and ask you to confirm, click the "OK" button on the bottom of the screen.
  5. Your entire yahoo email message should print out fully (not just the header). This is good for articles, messages and photos you wish to keep.
  6. Bear in mind that one page on the screen is not equivalent to one printed page, in fact, it may be quite a few more pages.

    If you only wish to print one page: select file, print and click on the second radio button in front of "pages 1 of 1."

    Or, specify 2 or 3, for example. If you know it will run into more pages.
    Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the box to start printing.
    You can always reprint if it doesn't print correctly.
  7. These steps will work for either Yahoo email classic or the newer version of Yahoo mail.
