    ...and I can't figure out how it happened or how to fix it.

    While browsing a web site, Pinterest, I went from one recipe screen to a second and noticed that the screen size had changed. It got larger and I can't see the entire page as before. I tried other web pages and found the same problem, the screen size had somehow been changed. I've checked the screen resolution and it's the same, 1024 X 768. All my non-web screens, excell, word, etc. are fine and haven't been changed, just web pages.
    I ran AVG to see if there might have been a virus and it found nothing. Ran Malwarebytes and it found nothing. Did a CClean and that didn't help either. As a last resort even tried restoring back to 2 days before the problem occured. Still didn't correct it.
    Other than changing the screen resolution at the control panel is there somewhere else for changing the screen resolution for web pages?

    Open your browser, hold down the Ctrl key and hit 0 (zero).

    When you hold down Ctrl and move the mouse wheel it zooms in and out. Ctrl 0 returns it to the default.

    The wife fixed this for me. Now I feel like a real dummy. The page was zoomed. She clicked "page" in the tool bar and set it to 100%. Voila, fixed! :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I think she just let me suffer for her pleasure! :D :D :D :D

    Thank you stantley for your reply.
