The sites you mention are just designed to look like that. There is no "real" way that you can do much -
See the forum box that you are typing in, it is about the same every where unless you get a larger monitor -
You can try to expand your screen settings, or just press F11 for the largest standard default screen - Don't forget to press F11 when you go to another site.
F11 just removes the browser address line and most Add On Tool bars - Also delete any toolbars that you do not NEED as they take space at the top of screens -
Your only other option is to use the Onscreen Magnifier - Start > Programs > Accessories > Accessability and click on the Magnifier option -
Hope it helps -
