When I print anything off a web page I almost need a microscope to read the print. This is a sudden development - although I haven't installed anything new or made any changes recently.
I can increase the font size on the screen OK, but whatever I print is still the same tiny sized printout on paper.
Appreciate some help and advice as to how to make my printout readable
Thanks !

I use T-Bird (v 31.7.0) On 2 occasions now, I have sent emails, with Attachments, to a friend in the UK, who is running HOTMAIL.On each occasion the Attachment is OK, but the message I sent with ti increases it?s Font size, line by line, until it is unreadable. Two 3 or 4 characters per line??and sections of the email are repeated. 4 or 5 lines, then back to the top.They are blaming me for a Virus?..but I am thinking the problem is their end, with a stuck key, or similar. Any ideas ?

A:thunderbird email change font size in hotmail email client

I don't know what is causing this but pretty sure "what it isn't".1. It is not the usual behaviour of a virus.2. It is not a stuck key their end. Keys don't come into the equation for received emails.Try sending an attachment to yourself and some other contact who will co-operate. That way you should be able to narrow down which end is responisible for the problem.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Other than dogging the print preview, and struggling with the size in any pertinent image editing software, has anyone found a reliable way to limit or control the size of a printed web document?
to wit:
I scanned an odd shaped document, 3x8" to email to myself at another site, and the printed form was big enough for two pages. What a waste.
I print receipts regularly and they, 99% of the time have a "trailer" on a last page that has stuff like web site address or URL, a Secure Website emblem, or other, clearly unnecessary printing. My introduction to Windows word processing (WordPerfect) had, and I still use, a "makeitfit" command. Invoking such a command AUTOMATICALLY when printing from the web seems like a simple, brainless way to conserve paper...it'll give me a fractional font (e.g. 11.9 vs. a 12) and would prevent the idiotic tendency of a printed page to only have the leftward 80%, l which leaves off the important stuff like the prices...(you gotta print landscape to avoid this)
And I thought a computer was to make life easier, boy was I ever misled)
 

A:printed size of web documents

The problem is that web pages are usually coded to make them look good on screen, and that tends to make them "unfriendly" when printing.

Web pages designed for printing do exist, and it works well in those (few) cases.

Cutting and pasting into a word processor is sometimes the only workable solution.

Installed a bigger widescreen monitor but when I print emails (with WL Mail) the text is smaller than with old monitor. Don't understand it - went back to an email that I printed a week ago and printed again ... sure enough, the text size was smaller (the image contained, however, was the same size). Thought the font size (of text in an email) was 'fixed' when sent - so why is it different with a larger monitor.

Now, I did tell Windows 7 to display the text size larger (so could see it better on larger screen) ... but, if anything, I'd have expected printed size to be larger.

Any suggestions of what to do? (I know can copy email text to another file then go to NotePad ++ and change the size - then print ... but that shouldn't be necessary.)

{Not sure if this is right forum, so let me know immediately and I'll reopen in appropriate one}

A:Changing default font and font size on hotmail

You may use your personal e-mail signature to choose default font in windows live hotmail...

In the options menu, select "more options" and then "personal e-mail signature". Choose the desired font style, size and color and type the phrase "text here". Save changes.

Now all you have to do, when writing a new message or a reply is highlight the phrase "text here" and start typing. It's that simple!

Like one of the other posters, I am trying to make refrigerator magnets. I’m using magnetic peel & stick business card magnets. Then print my own photos on blank business cards. (Like the other poster I know they’ll be flimsy but mine will be for decoration only.)

But the problem is - I can’t create my design the right size so it prints out as business card size. I can't make a business-card size rectangle in Paint to use as a template - it's never business-card size size when printed. Onscreen it looks exactly right - doesn’t print the way it looks. How can I create an image that is business-card-size when printed? I need a blank template to repeatedly paste different photos onto.

Also, can I print business cards individually? -like how you print one mailing label at a time in Word? Because I won't need hundreds of them, just one of each photo or design to make one magnet.

FYI, attachment shows the product I will use.

Windows 10.

I am having much fun grappling with my displays. I say grapple because I CANNOT see the text!

I have a laptop, with a display that has up to 2048x resolution and an external monitor that does 1920x. I have tried to keep both set the same resolution so the mouse will easily go back and fort.

If I bump one setting, others seem to change. Like after an update too!

I need a script, to set, then set again, and again, the
display settings,
the custom scaling level, and
the "change only text size".

Keeping the monitor placement geometry the same would be great for me too.

Oh for a cross reference on Outlook 2013 to the system setting. I keep manipulating the view settings there too.

Probably to get started I could use a "settings display" script.

Hello

I'm not sure what has happened but I went to create a system restore point earlier today only to find that the box where you type the description has shrunk down to an unreadable size as you can see below

Other programs don't seem to be affected, ie when naming/renaming files or installing programs into custom locations font size is normal. I don't know if it is only system restore that has this problem but it's the only program i've come across that is suffering.

Any ideas what has gone wrong or more importantly how to resize the type box so I can at least see what i'm typing?

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, “The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?”

Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.

Hi Muneeb and welcome to TSF !

You could give system restore a try : start => all programs => accessories => system tools => system restore. Select a date in bold prior to when the problem began. You won't lose any personal data but you may need to reinstall any program or update you've installed since then.

Else the system file checker can restore your system fonts. You'll need an XP install CD with service pack 2 (XP Home SP2 or XP Pro SP2 depending on the version you have installed). If your current CD hasn't got service pack 2 then you need to create a slipstreamed CD with SP2. Use one of these guides and report once you have an XP SP2 install CD :

Hi,

What size screen did you upgrade to, the bigger screen can make thing look different. Also, what resolution are you running at? If it is different than the last resolution that you had on your other monitor then everything will look different. For a rule the higher the resolution the smaller the icons, and the lower the resolution the the larger the icons, toolbars, etc.

Cheers!

Mine has shown a bit of a distressing tendency to do that since they added the new touchpad features they're quite proud of, to emulate some of the features of a touch screen. Check your touchpad settings. I don't know how your device is set up, but mine's under Synaptics>Properties>Device Settings> on the Settings button. There may be something you can change or untick under there. There was mention of it in the introductory app, which I seem to have temporarily misplaced, possibly because I can't remember what it was called...

Failing that, report it through the Feedback App.

Edited to add: I do suspect it has to do with the pinch/spread fingers feature to enlarge or shrink picture/text/etc. I'm trying to be more conscious of how I move my fingers on there. If you un-tick some of those features, it may solve the problem.

To change the font sizes in Outlook Express, you make the changes in Internet Explorer

If the font is too large or too small, change the text size in Internet Explorer by clicking View | Text Size | select larger or smaller as required, and then try printing again.

Not all of them just in programs like Ccleaner, SAS , MAM and Revo. Seem like any program that isn't on demand. I went to restore point and got things right again. Can't seem to find a way to change the font size in those kind of programs. Is there a way using Windows 7 Home Premium that one could change the font size in programs I have listed? They all went very small. Those programs don't have a (view) to change font size.

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Fonts\Font settings see if clicking restore to default will work.

Welcome to TSG!!
I found the following information here.


How do I change fonts?
You can change the type and size of the font used for the messages in chat. You'll find these settings under the "Preferences" button above the chat message line.
Click "Preferences," choose the font and size from the two menus, and then click "Save."

Note: The recommended font size for normal vision is between 10 and 14. Click to expand...

Hi,
When I was trying to make my XP SP3 look like Vista, I changed something for the font.
I used Movefile and a script. When the computer restarted, the font had changed, but is far too big and looks terrible.
I didn't save a system restore point
And I have tried changing the font size in 'Display Settings', then 'Appearance'. And I have tried changing the DPI setting and the 'Display Settings', 'Settings', then 'Advanced'.
Nothing. I really want everything put back to normal. How do I reset the fonts back to the standard XP size and style?
Or if possible, just to reduce the system font size.

I used these instructions: http://www.ghacks.net/2008/04/11/fully-replace-windows-xp-fonts-with-windows-vista-fonts/
 

A:HELP! XP Font Size

heeaar05, You should have set a System Restore point like the instructions stated before you made the change. You could try the reg file fix line 249 (left column) "Set Default XP Font Back to Tahoma" at the link below. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.

Can't guarantee that it will fix your problem so it's your call.

I have AOL 9.0 and Windows XP on an HP PC. I can send E-Mails and they print out as I specified (Arial 12pt.). However, when I receive E-Mails from anyone, the type face is HUGE, and takes three times the space to print out. I called AOL Tech Support (India, naturally), and got a lot of useless advice, including reinstallation. Please show me how to configure so I can receive and send in the same font size (medium).

Thanks a million.

I'm using Firefox 3.0.5 on XP. I know how to adjust the Font size for web pages and such. I have no idea how to to adjust the font size for any of the tool bars.(assuming it's possible). I spent some time on google and didn't find any concrete answers. I downloaded this extension called zoom directly from Mozilla. That just seems to add an icon you can click on to zoom the page itself. My LCD is set to it's native resolution of 1400 X 900. I really don't want to lower that just to correct this problem. I have to say that while I have good vision the text is awfully small on those upper bars. Thanks for any input.

R-click a blank area of your "upper bar" and ensure "use small icons" is not checked.

]When I send an email I can't change the font size. I have tried going to tools and changing the size and I have tried to change it in the format box of the send screen. The number in the font size box will change to what I have set it to, but when I start to type in a message, when I hit the first letter the font size goes back to 12. That is the only size font that will work. I have tried everything I can think of.
Any suggestions. I just noticed that I can't change the font size in this box, either.
Very strange.

Good morning dcb. . .

Welcome to the Tech Support forum - Vista!

I would suggest that you first check the Device Manager and look for any yellow or red signs indicative of a driver issue.

Also check the display settings and related functions such as the resolution and flicker rate. I have enclosed a screen shot with instructions to get to the Display Settings screen.

I don't have anything else for you at this time; however, should I come across and applicable information, I will certainly pass it on.

One question, though, you said that SOME web pages are smaller? Not all?

If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding Vista, please start a new thread for new subject matter.

Regards. . .

Hey guys, I am having a kind of unique problem. When I am online my font size changes randomly. Most of the time it is normal, but when I click on something, or if a page is loading the font will get much bigger. Sometimes this causes the page to lock up. I have no clue what it is. I have tried the easy fix of course with ctrl and scroll or even the view menu...but its just when I click something or a page is loading. Could this be some kind of virus???
