My cat rolled on my Keyboard and now the Text on the Index web page is too small to read.Once in BC the text is normal.I did a Re-boot to no avail.Went into Control Panel and set the text to normal,so I thought.Is there a quick fix besides getting rid of the cat.LOL.
This has happened once before exactly the same.I did System Restore to fix it.Wondering is there a shorter route.
Thanks in advance.

Don't know if I can offer any help DSTM,

but first, I'm not sure what the "index web page" is.

Could you provide a link?

Also, is this happening in only one browser, or all browsers?

In Fire Fox,no problems.What I meant by index page is when you select BC,the index page shows next,so you select Forums or whatever.I just went into Tools in IE6 and selected 'Reset Web Settings' The box was already ticked to reset Home page.It says Yes or No to reset to default. Wondering what other web settings may be changed .Is it ok to tick Yes? Better to be safe than sorry. Thanks. :thumbsup:

EDIT.I'll use FF till I get advice. :flowers:

OK then -

it appears to be a setting in IE, so we should be able to figure it out.

I wouldn't go back to a "restore" point just yet.

Once you get to the Fourm, and the text is OK,

if you click on the "Home" tab across the top of the page,

does it take you to what you called the "index" page,

and is it OK, or is it still small?


I don't have IE6 running, but IE7 may be similar - "tools", then what?

While on the page that is too small to read, hold down the "Ctrl" key and use your mouse wheel to increase text size.

If that doesn't permanently fix the problem, then try clearing your browsers cache via "Tools", exit and close the browser, and restart it.
The only easy day was yesterday.

Hey, no problem, DSTM.

KoanYorel's suggestion is what I was going to suggest once you confirmed what I thought you meant.

:thumbsup:
