- Changing font size on laptop
Sure this is a dozy question but here goes:
I have a Toshiba laptop using Vista OS. Sometimes when my hand is ested on the keyboard somewhere the font size reduces on the page I am on so that it is barely legible. If I come out and go in again then the small size remains. It does it on the particular site I am on, not all pages/tabs I may have open. Problem is I can’t recreate the issue. I thonk it is something to the ‘mouse’ bit and probably touching another key.
What am I doing and how do I reverse it?

Sounds like there may be a trackpad gesture which you may be triggering – Google suggests Toshibas have a pinch-zoom facility a la smartphone. http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Computer-Troubleshooting/Touch-pad-keeps-changing-the-font-size/td-p/73552Posted 7 years agonukeSubscriber
I’ve a Toshiba Satellite (Windows 7) and it’s as nickjb says: if i put two fingers on the pad them move them apart the mouse icon will change to a magnifying glass and the font size will increase. To make smaller, two fingers apart then bring together.
TBH I use an external mouse most of the time…if I hold the crtl button then use the wheel on the mouse it will increase/decrease the font depending on directionPosted 7 years ago
