You can very frequently substitute small for little and large for big with no effect, so I wouldn't worry too much over this! There's no iron-clad rule about it. Contrary to what you say, big animals is a normal combination. Many of the dinosaurs were certainly big animals. In California there's a place called Big Bear Park.
Other product sizes are also usually marked large or small. I need three large eggs for this recipe. Get me a small box of detergent. But as for how clothes fit: The list is endless, so it will require listening and reading to pick up the usual combinations. We supply a list of EFL job vacancies. So the keywords are 'large' is bigger than 'big'. I think this resolve some of the mystery I had over time on this matter. Since this matter is case depending, please correct these if I have make mistake.
Thank you in advance- Terr. You have not understood what I wrote, quoted again below. The toolbar size is fine just everything underit is terribly tiny. Have made text size larger and the short cut was great for websites but still cannot read emails. The subject heading is large but the actual text message is tiny.
Any suggestions very welcome. Dear Leo, Like many others my eyesight is failing. Your tip on how to enlarge text is just the ticket. I no longer cry eveytime I open my computer. May you be blessed. Well, I used to make big text with words on my computer screen, but now I forgot. Do u know that trick? May just be a temporary fix. Me too pushing 80 , and the way I change the text size in Windows 7 is I click on the sunburst or whatever the heck you call it in the upper right hand corner.
This brings up a window with Print, File, Zoom etc. I find that works for me. They are only temorpary while you have that particular browser up and running. Works the same with the MAC also. Reversed the change but now the icons are in different locations. This also occasionally happens after an update. Can I restore the previous arrangement with a file from my True Image Backup.
Other than a complete image restore of course. Eventually this will get you back to the setup one had in XP where the font of individual elements can be set.
Of course this thing is not fully functional!! Here are a couple of sources for Apple related questions. It was always ok. How can I make screen bigger to fit. Would appreciate your help. At age 85 I too have poor eye vision. I have a desktop PC with Win 7 and 23 inch LCD monitor which uses the normal screen resolution resulting in text which is too small. I also have a 17 inch lap top with Win 7 that uses the normal screen resolution of x It works perfectly for me without making any changes to screen resolution or dpi.
Linda, Leo has this article which may help: Is there a way of enlarging print size of email? The other way is in the advanced settings of: I count how many times I do it so that when I am done looking at whatever it was I can then do a Control and — to go back to normal.
Easiest thing in the world: Hold down the CTRL key and use your mouse wheel to increase or decrease the display size. Also, it looks like Firefox and maybe others remembers these zoom modifications on a site-by-site basis. This is nice if you find you need more magnification on some sites than on others. A final point — using F11 will make more reading space available for larger text. Maybe I am missing something, I hold down Control and click plus or minus to change the display.
However, a person might want to make text on an entire computer larger… hence the article on those options. If somebody sends you an email with the text so small it is hard to read then just start by pretend forward the email. In the forward mode you can now edit the email so simply enlarge the text to easily read it. I hope someone can find it for you all. Extremely easy way to increase or decrease font size on any internet site using Firefox, try a free add-on called NoSquint.
Also, you see the magnification in the status bar at the bottom. I use it every day. I have an HP laptop with an Nvidia display adapter. Now, for example, when I start Quicken, I get a low resolution warning message and the text size is not what I should be seeing.
When I boot the computer the icons on the logon screen seem smaller but then the desktop seems fine. Should I restore my Macrium backup from yesterday or try something else?
God bless you Leo. I am cursed with low vision and have fiddled with screen resolution for years without success. I applied your suggestion and can now see things on my screen much more easily.
I just uploaded Maverick for a Mac and now cannot find much. Now my text is really smaller than before. I am tired of clicking the zoom button all the time to adjust it. The kid at the store showed me how to permanately adjust it but he did it too fast and I cannot remember. He went into System Preferences and clicked on General. I did this and there is nothing there. You have saved me hours and hours of trying to figure this out.
Before re-installing XP I had somehow gotten rid of that annoying ad space to the rt. I have no idea how I accomplished that , but have read that it is impossible and must purchase the paid version.
It can be done! I see no scroll bar at the bottom. However, instead of telling how to get that effect, this article dismisses that method. The DPI setting suggested in this article is almost worthless because it only affects what you see on the desktop and browsers—which easily and more precisely could be adjusted in other ways. If you do online trading or use other software, the DPI setting probably will not help.
This article is helpful but mainly in the sense of informing us of the narrow-minded attitude of increasingly non-user-friendly programmers who seem blandly to assume that the needs of people should adjust to the needs of computers as decided by computer programmers.
Many people have worsened eyesight from using computers. Ever-larger screens should have mitigated this problem. In the past, they did. Two weeks ago I bought a new Dell laptop computer and my local cable company set it up for me.
However I am like others on these posts in that the font is very small. I am 82 years old and although I have another computer this one is confusing. Why is there not a zoom menu that shows different settings as I have on my Dell desktop. I am getting lots of pop up ads which were not there until the last few weeks and although Norton tried to help with live chat they are still there and make viewing websites hard and drive me crazy.
Is there any easy solution without using a perhaps unsafe website? Read this article and it will help: Sorry forgot to post last question on the Question page so it IS unrelated to the discussion! Due to poor sight age Good for my age the optician said pityingly- LOL.
However I obviously have deteriorating eyesight and was looking at the advice on enlarging text. I want to get BOLD text in emails and it is unbelievably hard to do this it seems. I found a place on control panel of my Sony Vaio laptop where different fonts are shown and you can choose one but cant get it to work on my computer.
Why do they make it so hard — in fact impossible? I asked my tech. A simple example will do. I hate Windows 8!!!!!!! Leo, I am now on firefox and cannot get all my screens to a larger print. I went to view and zoomed in and out and cannot get anything to work.
ALSO, I see grey vertical sides to my screen on both sides and cannot get the body of the screen to widen out and get the grey away. Thanks for your help.

Can you tell me how to restore it? There are such buttons or controls in specific applications, but they apply only to those specific applications.
You might want to look into potentially reinstalling that. Using Win 7 Pro. Is there away to restore it? I have tried and tried, but to no avail…. What caused my fonts to become smaller on my desktop??? All I did was restart my computer??? I was able to enlarge the icons by using the CNTL and mouse wheel but cannot figure out how to get the font size larger? I have an Apple laptop and the font in my email messages is small making it hard to read.
Any help you can give me would be appreciated greatly. I spent a whole day trying to figure out why my split panes disappeared as I was typing my emails in a webmail.
The pane grew bigger and my emails disappeared. I called customer support. He did his best without resolution. He told me to re -install google chrome. That was when I turned to google for help. I was directed to this site. My problem was resolved. Thanks Leo for your help. Now I know where to come and look for stuff. And therein lies my problem.

When the seed came up, there was one plant bigger than all the rest; and it kept getting larger and larger, and seemed as if it would never cease growing; so that it might have been called the prince of turnips for there never was such a one seen before, and never will again.
