Is there a way to force a Flash and/or java applet to resize itself from the client side of things? I have a netbook with a tiny screen and some flash games and stuff are too big in resolution to work in their native resolution. If there were a way I could cut the window size down (crush it and not crop) they would still show everything but actually fit on my computer.

I use Firefox but wouldn't put Opera/Chrome/etc out of the question if it works.

Open up the webpage and press Control + -. (That is Cntrl and - key at the same time)

This shrinks the whole webpage and may or may not shrink the flash/java games. But atleast it's something to try.

Other keys to change the size:

Control + - = Shrink
Control + + = Zoom
Control + 0 = reset page size.

Does not work. It only resizes text and images. Tested using Firefox 15.0

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. It seems to vary depending on the flash content...

Try the link jhayz provided. Also, here's a similar FireFox addon.

Thanks for the responses guys but it looks like the website I am trying to get to work (http://www.playr.org) just can't be resized. They have flash based emulations of some gameboy games and I wanted to get them tiny to run on my Netbook which has kind of a small screen. I tried using the addons for firefox and they resize the frame but can't shrink or expand the applet itself so when you downsize it just clips the window which is of course bad.

If I find something one day I'll come back and post it. I always try to.
