I am a computer know nothing. My lack of knowledge concerning computers is probably fueled by the deep and abiding loathing I have for them. I simply hate them...but I love some of the things I can do with one, like stay in touch with the ABB community. I love this band.

Here is my question:

I wake up today and several other discussion forums I participate in (not this one)...and other sites as well...have different letters and typeface than they had yesterday. (I think that is called "font"). The "font" is different almost everywhere I go.

If it were one place I would assume they updated their format and "look" for some reason, but its several different forums. All the same day. Thats too much of a coincidence...it must be my computer.

The letters are bigger and styled differently. I did absolutly nothing to change it. I know there is a place called "settings" where I can mess around with that stuff if I want to, but I never do and never have.

All I did was shut the computer down yesterday and power it up today, and now everything is different. I changed no font settings.

WHY is this happening?

Thanks,

"D"

Are you sure no one else in your household changed the fonts?
I would go ahead and click on view (I'm not sure what browser you're using) and see what text has been selected
Another thing is make sure you got an anti-virus program running while you're on the internet, you never what might be affecting your computer.
Might be totally off base, but that's my non-professional guessing.

Perhaps you accidentally hit the roller on your mouse while holding down the control key. Try that. Go to a page where the fonts look different, hold down your ctrl key and roll your mouse wheel up and down. See what happens. Perhaps you'll be able to get the font size back to how you want it.

Edit: that won't work on this site, as apparently the font sizes are fixed rather than relative.

That fixed it!

I must have accidently done that at some point in time yesterday or the day before.

Thanks!

That's your problem, shutting down the cpu is the worst thing you can do. Better go get yourself a new computer, that one's shot
