This really does work....Try it!!!!

This is for everyone whose eyesight isn't what it used to be. It's very useful when trying to read small e-mail print (especially in the early hours).

If you hold down the Ctrl key on your key board and turn the small wheel in the middle of your mouse, the print size will change - it will either get larger or smaller - depending on which way you turn the wheel.

Pass this on to other friends who may find it very useful

      I don't have a mouse. Just an old scruffy cat. I now own 6 pairs of glasses plus contacts so I guess I don't need the mouse. Or the cat.

        For those without a wheel mouse the font will do the same by holding down Ctrl and pushing either + or -.

            You can also go to the "view" menu under "text size" and choose a larger or smaller font size.

                2 years and I'm bald. Think that's got something to do with it?

                  I compare the abundance of my grey hair's to the amount of years I have had a PC. Every year, there seems to be more!
                  At least I dont pull it out!

                    Computer Haiku
                    **************

                    1. The Web site you seek cannot be located,
                    but countless more exist.

                    2. Chaos reigns within.
                    Reflect, repent, and reboot.
                    Order shall return.

                    3. Program aborting:
                    Close all that you have worked on.
                    You ask far too much.

                    4. Windows NT crashed. I am the Blue Screen of Death. No one hears your screams

                    5. Yesterday it worked.
                    Today it is not working.
                    Windows is like that.

                    6. Your file was so big.
                    It might be very useful.
                    But now it is gone.

                    7. Stay the patient course.
                    Of little worth is your ire.
                    The network is down.

                    8. A crash reduces
                    your expensive computer
                    to a simple stone.

                    9. Three things are certain:
                    Death, taxes and lost data.
                    Guess which has occurred?

                    10. You step in the stream,
                    but the water has moved on.
                    This page is not here.

                    11. Out of memory.
                    We wish to hold the whole sky,
                    but we never will.

                    12. Having been erased,
                    the document you're seeking
                    must now be retyped.

                    13. Serious error.
                    All shortcuts
                    have disappeared.

                    14. Screen.
                    Mind.
                    Both are blank.

                      you can also press down your wheel then slide the mouse to move the page, instead of rolling the wheel.

                      Does anyone know who reinvented the wheel?

                            A lot of "other" folks around here seem to love AOL. I don't know why... So roossy, what ISP u using now? (Please don't say Netscape, Net-Zero, et.al.)

                              I have been using cable modem or dsl for about 3 years now.
                              Been with AOL for almost 6.
                              They only time I was directly linked to AOL was when I was on dial-up.
                              HTC-Horry County Telephone Co-op is my service provider, which I am using their DSL. I think it runs about 3mb(?-does that sound right?) according to the broadband test.

                              I had just hung on to AOL for some unknown reason.
                              My email is thru Yahoo now. Though, it seems I still can maintain my AOL email addies.

                                However, they (HTC) do have an email service, but I dont care for it.
