I just responded to a Member who’s having a problem getting the Site to “Fit” on his Monitor. It wasn’t all that clear exactly what the Problem is but I responded as best I could.

IF this Cut and Paste works it should all be here. IE 8 Offers SOME Resizing but this Method is finite. SNAP to use and can be adjusted in Seconds

Hope it’s of Some Value to Ya’ll !!


I’ll assume that “stretched out” means LJ’s is larger than your “Standard Page” on your Monitor and that you have to use the Vertical or Horizontal Sliders on the side and bottom to view the Page? Yes? No?

On your Lower Right Corner is a Percentage Number that you can set to whatever you want, 50% up to 400% or Custom. Mine is now at 130% and the Sliders are there, but I prefer a larger view. I just dropped it to 100% and I can hardly see what I’m typing ..LOL..

You been Messing with those settings???..LOL…

Nothing in those “Standard Settings” will give you a Perfect Fit, at least for here.

So! I’m gonna share with you an OLD Family Secret taught to me by my Great Grandfather on his Computer.. RICK!! LIAR!! LIAR!! Oh Shut Up!

Assuming you have a Mouse On Wheels (Scroll Wheel) ..Hold down Ctrl. (Lower Left Corner of Keyboard) at the same time, Turn the Mouse Wheel. Your Page should now Increase or Decrease to whatever size you’d like to have it at.

Lots of FUN also!! At Minimum Size I can take this page down to about Half the size of a Dollar Bill. At Maximum every Letter is about 1”+!! Very Handy for those “Sites” where you might like to have a “Closer Look” …LOL…

Let me know if this helps please.

I forgot to mention that it also works with Anything you already have on your Computer also. i.e. Pictures, Graphs, Text Etc.

Thanks for responding Jack & Dusty. 127 Views? I guess everyone knows about it already also.

Gonna Lay a Big Egg. ...Now I’m gonna go hide and have a Little Cry….. LOL…

yeah somebody on this site mentioned this a little while ago

but i have a mouse where the wheel also is a button

so if you push down on the wheel the cursor then turns into a plus sign then you can do the same thing by turning the wheel

which i have been doing for a while

thought this extra info might help someone

I think that was me a little while ago. Alzheimers I think ….. What was I saying? Oh Yeah … Push down on my Mouse Wheel and a Multi Directional Arrow Pops up that lets you Slide Up. Down, Left, Right.

(Sounds like the Date I had last Night..LOL..) OOPS!! (is there a “Flag” to the Left??)

So that makes My Mouse better than yours!! ;-} OH No! I just Pressed to Hard ..YUK! Now I gotta go get a Towel and clean up the Mess!
