I don’t know about you, but sometimes my eyes really need a relief on web pages with tiny text. There is a way to zoom in and make everything more readable. On Internet Explorer 8 click on Page (upper right) and scroll down to Zoom. You can choose the zoom you want. Also notice the keyboard shortcuts.
CTRL+ = zoom in
CTRL- = zoom out
CTRL0 = Return to normal (that’s a zero)
There’s even an easier way with most mice. Hold CTRL and scroll the center roller wheel in or out. Cool huh?

New to blogging? Don’t know where to start? I’ve found that WordPress.com is the most valuable place to start a blog. It’s free and you will have a blog on the Internet within minutes. Using WordPress to create your blog could not be easier. Go to the site, read about it, try it. It really is free.

If you are using the Google Chrome browser, you may want to check if you are using the latest version. To update manually or to see if it’s already updated, open Chrome then click on the Tool button (upper right) and click About Google Chrome. (post updated 11-09-09)

I’ve discovered that some newbies didn’t realize that you can have more than one web browser open at the same time. You can open a new instance of Internet Explorer® or even a different browser, such as Firefox or Google Chrome. Give it a try; do your normal surfing on Internet Explorer and watch your stock portfolio on Firefox…

While surfing the Internet I often click on a link to open a page and then click on another link from that new page… Pretty soon I get lost or forget my original page. A better way is to keep the original page open and open new tabs or even new windows. Most browsers have this function. Try it, you’ll never open one page at a time again!
Browser tip: Right click on a web link and select Open in New Tab or Open in New Window.
