I recently bought a Dell Inspiron laptop with Windows 10 Home operating system.  When I am online and a new window pops up, sometimes the text resizes so small it is hard to read.  (Especially when downloading software.)  Tonight I had the same result when I was using my offline Printmaster software.  The menu screen starts out "normal" but then resizes to  tiny, tiny, tiny.  I have checked every where I can, but I haven't found a resolution to this problem.  Can anyone help?  Thanks!

I would check your mousepad settings and see if the "Pinch to Zoom" feature is enabled.  If it is, try disabling it and see if your problem goes away.  If it does, and you want the feature on, then play with the sensitivity settings to see if you can reach a point where accidental activation does not occur.


On certain mousepads it is very, very easy to accidentally do an unintended "pinch" and resize everything.   If you do, remember that CTRL+0 is generally the instant "return to 100%" size command in any web browser.
