Howdy,

I have XP Home, IE-7,SP-3. After downloading SP3 when it first became available, I thought that there was a feature that allowed you to enlarge the page that you were viewing. In other words you could make the page take up all the room on your monitor temporarily making your tool bars disappear. It has been so long since I have used the feature I have forgotten how to do it.

I thought that all I had to do was press f-11 to enlarge and press f-12 to bring it back to normal.

I Googled IE-7 SP3 but I could not find any mention of it. Maybe I am dreaming but I thought for sure it could be done.


Any advice ?


Thanks for your time,

Dennis :thumbsup:

You can try going to the View>Fullscreen menu option or perhaps using the Alt+Enter key combo. I thought it was F11 too.

Ctrl Key and the mouse roller will enlarge the print.

Thanks for the replies ! All is good. I read a lot of books online and this will allow me more print on a page plus I can zoom to make the print larger without running off the edges of the screen.



Thanks Again,

Dennis :thumbsup:
