    Okay, I recently had my web book into be fixed. (One of my main running files had been corrupted.) I got it back today with everything completely erased and clean, but I can't for the life of me get my web pages to fit my browser windows. My screen is tiny and it's quite annoying having to constantly scroll. I've done the 'Ctrl - +' that's not solving the problem and neither is changing my resolution. I never had this problem before. I use Firefox and tried installing the add on 'NoSquint', but that's not much help either.

    Another thing, my web book has no disk drive so I can't just re install Windows if that's the problem.

    Help is most appreciated. Thanks in advance. ^^ <3

    Why is changing the resolution "not solving the problem" if all you want is for it to be bigger?

    What is your current resolution?

    Sorry, I must not be explaining clearly. ^^
    The web pages are huge and I would like for them to fit my browser window, so that I don't have to scroll sideways to see everything.

    800 by 600 pixels.

    800x600 is a very large resolution. I haven't seen a web age that would fit that in a long time. Is there some reason you can't use something larger?

    When I apply a larger resolution it just makes my screen wider. It no longer fits to the edges of my screen but goes beyond it.

    Well a larger resolution is the only way to resolve this. You should be able to change resolutions that have the same aspect ratio. What sizes are available to you? That is the only thing that you can do. Web pages are larger than 800x600 and that won't change. You can zoom out until the page fits, but it will be extremely small.

    As far as it going off the edge of the screen, that is a monitor setting. If you check the monitor settings, you will see options for vertical and horizontal sizes. That does not change the resolution grossly, but can make the screen slightly smaller so it will fit the monitor edge. There will also be settings to move the entire display right-left or up-down to center it.
