    Seeing double

    Somehow I accidentally hit a key which doubled the size of the text on this forum.

    Can anybody suggest how to undo that, please?

    Only on this forum?

    Re: Seeing double

    When I forget my eyeglasses, I click on "View" then I scroll down and click on "Zoom in". That enlarges the text. To make it smaller, do the reverse. (However, I don't know how that would happen only on this website. )

    Re: Seeing double

    If you press the Ctrl key and - together, it should shrink the font. Ctrl + increases it.

    Re: Seeing double

    Sorted! I must have pressed Ctrl + instead of Shift +.

    Also, if you press Ctrl and 0 (Zero) at the same time it resets the zoom level to 100%.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
