Yet another “help me out” post…

My cat walked all over my keyboard and now my font is huge and I have no idea what he pressed to do this! How do I put my font back to normal?

I tried going to Tools, then Options, then changing the default font size from 16 to 12 but that didn’t do anything so I put it back to 16.

My computer looks ridiculous. Like I’m blind or something. Bad pumpkin. >:-[

    Right click on your Desktop > Properties > Appearance tab > select Font size Normal from drop-down menu. Click Apply. Click Ok.

      I actually rebooted it and it’s fine, but just to see if that worked, I right-clicked, then hit properties, and all I got was a popup box. But luckily the reboot worked!

        Glad it’s back to normal. 🙂 For future, the Appearance tab is located the “popup box” called ‘Display Properties’ – it’s where you change your settings, screen saver, desktop, etc.

          For me, the only way I can get there is to go through the control panel. When I right-click, all I get is the popup box that says, “Element Properties” and says that the text language is English. No tabs or nothing. 🙁 Do you run a PC with XP, or do you have a Mac?

            You should definitely be able to change that by right clicking and going into Properties. You have the weird. 🙂 “Element Properties” isn’t standard on Windows (may be related to a video card or something else like that.)

            But the control panel is another way to get there.

            I don’t like having the weird! Why is it weird??? Bad computer!

            We’ve got a PC with XP. Are you sure when you right click on your desktop (make sure you don’t click on an icon) you don’t get the Display Properties window?

            When you log in, are you the Administrator (or have Admin status) on your computer?

          • Erin says:

            Yes. And yes. I don’t have any icons on my desktop (I’m a neat freak). And I’m the only person who uses the computer so I am the only administrator.
