Outlook suddenly displaying at wrong size in Edge

Question: Outlook suddenly displaying at wrong size in Edge

Not sure if this is a MS issue. Default zoom setting for Edge is 125% but Outlook email is suddenly really tiny in size despite Edge showing 125%. The right hand 30% of the screen is now just empty white space. If I change it to 100% and back to 125% then it corrects until I close and reopen Edge. No other tabs are affected.

Preferred Solution: Outlook suddenly displaying at wrong size in Edge

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Greetings!

One of my users asked me how to get the folder size to show up on the outlook status bar. I did some research after diddling around in outlook for awhile and haven't come with anything that I could do. I only have basic user rights and exchange admins aren't likely to make this sort of change at my request.

I read that it's a setting that needs to be set on the exchange server (We use exchange 2010). By default, we are in Cached Mode, but it doesn't seem to make a difference if I switch it off.

Is there anything that can be done on the client side to get this option to show?

Answer:MS Outlook 2010 - Status Bar Not Displaying Folder Size

not on an exchange server

if you drag the side bar for the list to the right
does size appear in the header ?

Hello,

For some reason the font and size of my outlook express inbox have changed. They are too small, and the font is awful. I would prefer Arial Black, and size 12, but nothing I do changes it. When I open messages, they are fine, arial black and 12. When I send messages, they are fine, arial black and 12. But the font and size of my toolbar and inbox information is too small (probably an 8 or a 6, and a thin spidery font that is hard to read). I can't for the life of me find anything that fixes this problem. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Server - Exchange 2010
Client - Outlook 2007- Cached Mode

I have one user who will receive a warning email, per our storage quotas, that his Mailbox is getting close to being over its limit. Our Exchange Server's storage quota for this user is set to send a warning email at 300MB. When I look at his Mailbox on the serve, the size is reported at 308MB. When I look at the folder size in Outlook, the Mailbox size is also reported as 308MB, with 288MB of that used by the Outbox.

There are NO messages displayed in the Outbox, and all mail is being sent without any issues. I've seen some solutions for similar issues on this site, and on other sites, but I really can't apply those as they all reference deleting messages from the Outbox. I see NO messages in the Outbox, yet it still reports as taking 288MB of space.

Edge had quite a make-over for the Anniversary Update, so it's quite possible some of the defaults got reset. On the 'search bar and favourites' page there's a cogwheel icon to the far right, just above the Top Sites tiles (if you don't have Top Sites either, go to Edge's settings and set 'Open new tab with' to 'Top sites').

Click the cogwheel to customise the New Tab page and add the newsfeeds you want.

The problem I am having is when i enable my graphics card (geforce 9800 GTX) the edges of the display go out of viewing. I have tried using vista and nvidia drivers, either way once the graphic card is enabled with drivers the format changes and the edges of the display go out of screen. I am still able to click on the task bar and other windows when they are out of screen, because my mouse will also go out of screen to reach them.
If i disable my graphics card, the viewing area is fine.

Use the buttons on your monitor to either auto-adjust the size or do it yourself manually, Its just the settings being used by your monitor and nothing todo with your graphics card or Vista.

Recently Microsoft Edge and Explorer 11 are not showing the math website associated with a college course. There used to not be an issue. I'm running Windows 10 and really enjoy Edge, however, if the compatibility with this website is now lost I'll have

I've been running into a text display issue with my browsers. When I go to a certain website (eg:www.nationstates.net), all it displays is just a weird arrangements of letters, numbers and symbols. This was from Chrome, and the same issue persists in Edge. At first, I thought that this was an issue with my browsers, so I uninstalled them and reinstalled them (including extensions). However, this did not solve anything and I am not sure what to do.

Also, this problem extends to the 'new tab' page on Chrome and google.co.uk (both of which do not display properly).

I bought a WD Hard drive a few months ago, and it's worked fine. I've been using Linux alot and recently I decided to trudge back to Mircowhore and use Win XP Pro. I installed Win 98 and used my Win XP upgrade disc and choose to use NFTS. Well, as it was formating my drive my power went out for just a second- long enough to shut my computer down. So I restarted it and went through everything and choose FAT 32 and planned to convert to NFTS latter. After it was all done I came to notice that my drive was only being read as a 33gb drive instead of the robust and full 120gb. WTF? So I used Partition Magic 8 to read the drive and it only came up with the 33gb FAT 32 drive with no reference what so ever of the lost 80+ gb's. Also Windows isn't finding it either. I tried a data recovery program and it didn't find anything. I used Data Life Guard to write Zero's to it to erase the Partitions, but even after that was done, it was still only 33gb. Grrr... Any ideas on what to do? I spent 130 dollars on this thing, and now it's not working. Please help!

Answer:Displaying incorrect RAM size in Lenovo Laptop

Yes, it's true, windows XP 32-bit usually can't see more than 3 GB of ram. Moreover, AFAIK, any 32-bit OS has this problem. This problem exists because 2^32 bytes = 4GB is the maximum amount of ram which can be addressed by 32-bit OS. I'm not sure, but I think that 64-bit version of Windows XP exists and you can try it.

I was downloading some Canon Pixma printer software, from canon's official website, and when the download finished I restarted my computer. Once I restarted the computer all of my display text was replaced by symbols. Still being able to sign in, I tried entering the control panel, but the screen started blinking every 2 seconds making it impossible to perform an action. ALL of the text is replaced by symbols and I'm not able to enter Safe Mode when rebooting. I tried Shift and F8, Shift and F10, Fn and F8 and even F8 by itself to cause a safe mode boot, but nothing happened. It happened suddenly and I've never had any problems with my laptop before. I'm a web developer and I have A LOT of media files that are crucial to my work. I have important data and work done for clients so I'd like to keep those files. Trying to insert a HDD to backup my stuff causes the screen to blink which can only be stopped by shutting down the laptop. I've searched for hours for a fix and haven't found anything so I'll try here.

So this started happening a few weeks ago. At first I thought it was an issue with an addon that might have done out of date or something but this is happening across 3 different systems... one of which is isolated from the other two (my workstation at work, desktop at home and my laptop... which I'm the only one with access to the later two), so not sure what the problem could be.

So, for an example, if I go to YouTube, the font color of all the comments are white. If I highlight the area, I can see the text... but otherwise it's invisible. Likewise for certain elements on sites like Engadget. Some things are visible... others are either white or a very bright color that makes it next to impossible to read on a light colored background. Craigslist is almost impossible to read. I assumed that, at first, it was due to script blocking or something... but I've uninstalled ALL of my addons and it hasn't corrected it. The only way that I can seem to 'fix' it is to run a "stylish" theme for an affected website... but even that has it's limits.

Is this happening for anyone else? Both chrome and IE render the page fine... this seems like it's only an issue with Firefox

I recently changed my favicon on my self-hosted blog. But the old favicon is still showing up as the shortcut on the desktop of my laptop computer after more than a week. The address bar and tab bar are displaying the correct favicon in IE7. I am certain the problem is associated with my laptop computer because my desktop computer, which never “saw” the old favicon, is displaying the correct favicon as a desktop shortcut. Both computers are Dell and have IE7. I have done the following in an effort to fix the problem:

Removed all links in my favorite’s folder and all shortcuts from my desktop, then performed the below four bulleted steps below.
Removed all traces of the old favicon from all folders on my computer, then performed the below four bulleted steps below.

• Cleared my cache manually through IE7 tools.
• Flushed dns with ipconfig.
• Ran CCleaner.
• Rebooted my computer

Made sure CCleaner emptied my Recycle Bin.
Made sure the site address was not protected in my CCleaner.
After the above bulleted steps I saved the links again in my favorites and as shortcut on my desktop.
Did the first step a second time, completed the four bulleted steps again, and waited 24 hours before I added them back to my favorites and my desktop.
Set automatic dns flush to every 4 hours.
Completed a search on my computer, including hidden files and folders, and the old favicon was not found.

Anyone have any ideas?

Answer:Google search results are displaying at far left of the screen in MS Edge

I notice that Microsoft Edge is displaying Google Search results exactly the same as Chrome. I see no difference. I am unable to duplicate the issue of one word per line at all.
Perhaps there is an issue with your installation of Edge, or perhaps it needs to be updated to the latest version of Edge?

Hi,
New to Windows 10 and was fooling around with fonts (no ``save button`? - that`s supposed to be a question mark, not a French accent, maybe part of problem) - now all text (in programs and in browser?) looks like a printer running out of ink. Have played with ClearText type, fonts, display ?tc. etc. When I try to change size in display settings, it`s stuck on 100% (does not slide up or down). Perhaps I need a new monitor? Any help greatly appreciated. P.S. Am in Canada, trying to use the US English keyboard - if I change my location to US and use US

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
Any ideas what might cause Windows 7 Ultimate to show only the start button and Windows wait cursor on the first RDP connection attempt using both monitors--but only when display is set to Medium (125%)?
My user can connect to his office computer (the one running Ultimate) via RDP using a single monitor(i.e. with "Use all my monitors for the remote session" unchecked) with no problem. However, when he attempts to connect both monitors (that box
checked), only the start button comes up in the remote session. The Windows wait cursor spins for a minute, then stops spinning but stays onscreen.
At the same time, there is no response to mouse clicks, and remote keystroke combintions such as Alt-F4 and Alt-Ctrl-End do nothing. However, if I then disconnect or minimize the RD session and then reconnect with all displays, all is fine: the desktop
appears with all icons, and start button, mouse, and keyboard are all fully functional.
This is all independent of the client computer; that is, behavior is the same from the user's RD client computer and when I do it from my home office. And it does not change if I change the RD environment settings to, for example, not show the desktop background.
But, being hesitant to hide behind the all-too-common "just recreate the profile - it must be corrupted", I dug more deeply. I found that he has his desktop display set at "Medium - 125%". Naturally enough, this cannot be chang... Read more

Hi,

On my laptop, on certain websites, the font is completely different to how I view it on every other computer/laptop. I cannot figure out what could possibly be causing this and was hoping someone here has a solution.

I have included screen shots showing the difference. I know it may sound really ocd, but it's generally worse on my eyes I find. All the main titles on websites (more than just facebook) are replaced by a horrible bold font and the general text on a lot of sites seems more narrow.

This happens on all browsers and only browsers, all other system fonts are correct.

Things I have tried so far but did not fix the problem
- connected laptop to another monitor and applied the max resolution of 1080p (my laptop screen is 1366x768, gpu supports 1080 tho)
- Gone into my internet options from the control panel and tried changing the font (and crossed checked it with other computers)
-Checked chrome's font settings and cross checked with other computers

The problem as been present ever since I got the laptop, its just really started to bug me recently.

Any help is appreciated, thanks

For example, why does my Radiohead folder, which should display an image of the band (which is in the Radiohead folder as "folder.jpg") assign an image of Cindy Lauper, which is in another folder?

Hi! I'm using Win7 in portuguese (pt-PT) and the calculator has some some keys with strange symbols in them. So, instead of the backspace arrow, there's a rectangle, and the "x" was replaced by a square. In scientific mode it's even worse.



I've already restored windows fonts through the control panel. I've renamed the calc.exe.mui and nothing. I've even tried downloading an english version posted in these forums, but it didn't work. Even the language remained the same.

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Calculator displaying wrong characters in keys.

i see the difference.
did you make any changes to your computer recently? you could try a System Restore to a date that you did.

I recently created an image using Clonezilla using partitions rather than whole disk. I had to do this to apply the image to a 80GB HDD rather from a 250GB HDD. This way my whole disk image would fit on smaller drives. Well I think my shortcut to making a whole new image on the 80GB broke something.

I did this by shrinking the partition on the 250 to ~24GB and making an image of the System Reserved (100MB) and the C drive (~24GB). I then applied this image to an 80GB drive so I would be able to take a whole disk image to apply to any drive that is 80GB and larger.

After I applied the Clonezilla Part-Image to the 80GB the partition was only ~24GB... This is expected. I figured I would be able to expand the partition to the un-formatted space.

The kicker is, I can't do that. Disk Management says that the C drive is actually ~74GB.

--See attachment--

My brain hurts. Is there a known solution for this?

What I am going to try next is remove this 80GB HDD, plug it into another computer and delete everything off it. Make it RAW no partitions. Then I will apply the part image again and hope that it will have three partitions. 100MB, ~24GB, ~50GB. The 50GB will be un-partitioned space that I can extend the C drive to. This is my theory and I hope it will work.

Answer:Disk Management is not displaying correct HDD size. Partition issues?

I am able to extend the partition if I use a 160GB drive but not the 80GB. This is very strange.

Sorry, but your positing is very confusing?
I have no idea what you changed in the past in the Toshiba DVD player settings but I think the easiest solution would be new installation of Toshiba DVD player Utility.

Usually you could download the Toshiba DVD player from the Toshiba EU driver page
Before installing this software, I recommend to uninstall the installed Toshiba DVD player.
Then reboot the notebook.
Download the tool from the Toshiba website and start the installation.
Finally reboot the notebook and test the functionality.

I'm having a weird issue with how a certain website is displaying in my browser. The font is all messed up, and I have no idea if it's an issue with my browser (Firefox), or my OS (Windows 7 32bit).

The site is buzzfeed. It displays fine in my other browsers, but in Firefox, one of the fonts is constantly displaying incorrectly - it looks like the wrong font is being used (it's using rockfont for some reason - which is on my system as a requirement for a pinball game I play).

Here's how it looks usually in Firefox:

And here's how it looked after I uninstalled the rockfont font:

And then just a few minutes later, it looked like this (while rockfont was still uninstalled):

Any idea what's going on with my fonts, and why it only happens on this one site, and only in Firefox? I'm using the latest version of Firefox, but this has been happening for months. After I re-installed rockfont, the page then went back to using that as a font, as in the top image.

Hi all,

I have got a Dell Vostro 1400 laptop that has been giving me a headache... It is more than 3 years old and came with Windows XP pre-installed. I ran Win7 (legitimate copy) on it for awhile (about 4 months) without any problems, then suddenly it would die while in Win7. Things like system shutting down by itself and freezing when displaying videos were common. Then it started showing “Memory Parity” errors. I tried swapping RAM modules but to no avail.

So I re-installed Windows XP with SP3. Installation was smooth and driver installation was in order. It ran ok for about a week before auto-shutting down again. Now it even screws up the screen during BIOS loading (when the Dell logo and progress bar shows) and when loading Windows (please see attached photo for crazy fonts/capitalisation during Windows Restore screen).

I am now running Ubuntu from it without installation (i.e. booting and running from the CD) and am encountering no problems whatsoever.

The Dell BIOS diagnostics would run while I was running Win7 and report no errors, so I’m trying to assume that there’re no hardware errors. Perhaps the photo might be telling to you experts out there.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Well, my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E535 is around a year old, and it seems there are now hardware issues. Sometimes the battery is charged to 100% or a bit less and after some minutes the laptop just goes off and makes a click. That was it. After I restart it, it says it has installed some software and I should make a restart, everytime. Also there is no more low energy warning appearing (it appeared some days ago but now not anymore), it is set to 10% seems to be something like this:http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/T430s-shuts-down-or-powers-off-while-on-bat... is there some fix?the Update Manager of Lenovo does not find a fix, the Energy Manager does also not find a firmware update for the battery Do I really have to search and download this from your website again?! Which is the correct link for the Edge E535? Can't find it

Answer:Edge 535 shuts off/down suddenly

Hi, Mu5ch1n4t0r
 
Have you checked Event Viewer to see if Windows has recorded anything related to these sudden shutdowns? If not, if you open the Start menu and search for Event Viewer, you should be able to find it (it may say View event logs, but both will lead you to the same place.) Once in Event Viewer, select Windows logs, then System. From here, scroll through the log and go to the last time you remember this issue occurring. See if there are any errors or warnings that look related to this and post those here.
 
Thanks in advance,Adam

Hi. I am experincing an annoying problem with my Edge 13. When running on battery it suddenly goes into hibernation while im working with the pc - not because it was left untouced for some time. It does this "trick" at all battery levels, it has happened some times while battery level was between 80 and 90 % It seems to bappen 2-4 times while using up a full charge. I have tried changing the critical battery level action in windows power mgt from hibernate to sleep, so instead it goes into sleep. Seems like windows/power mgt. software receives a faulty critical battery level signal from the hardware. (edited: changing the critcal battery level action makes it go into sleep instead of hibernation) K625, bios 1.17, newest verision of power mgt. software. Anyone else having experienced this kind of problem ? I hate these non-dead/periodical problems; bringing the machine in for warranty will probably result in it being returned with the standard "no errors found, cleaned and adjusted" :-( Best regards,Erik

Hi there folks,

I sat down this mroning to install a couple of educational softwares etc. I realized that certain settings have changed and I do not know how to get these back to their original state:

1. The font on my desktop icons and Windows Explorer are different (smaller and different style).
2. The headers on Outlook messages are huge. The size of most pop up messages are huge too (e.g. reminder pop ups from Outlook). When I open the 'options' window or any others within Outlook, the window size is the same as before, but the text is huge and bolded, and even goes out of the borders of the window (and hence is incomplete).

What setting could have changed is a mystery. How do I get this back?? I have tried to do a Office XP Repair (from the Programs Uninstall section). That did not work.

Please suggest something!

Question: wrong size fan??

hey guys, i'm working on my father's computer. long story short the new mobo i purchased seems to be having a little difficulty.

MSI board #KM4AM-V

my problem is that the fan doesn't want to sit on the cpu properly without coming into some contact with a chipset heatsink and what i believe to be a diode. i have a generic fan that is for the amd cpu xp series.

http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=KM4AM-V&class=mb take a look at the mobo.

i have never had this problem before. the previous mobo did not have this problem either.

has anybody else had this problem or am i just lucky??

if so any recommendations for a different fan or is contact between the fan
and the above mentioned parts acceptable ??
 

Answer:wrong size fan??

heatsinks can get quite hot. so no touching! and if youve tried putting the heatsink on a few times, youve obviously damaged the thermal compound on its base, and it needs to be replaced.
about the mobo, first of all, for the amd athlon xp series, you should have never gone for a via chipset based motherboard. thats not a diode, its a capacitor, and can melt easily if t stays at temperatures like 60C for some time. id recommend looking for a little smaller heatsink, but dont get something too small, as it wouldnt cool the cpu properly

Hey so I have had this computer for about 3 months. It has worked perfectly fine the whole time. I had a similar model, U530, before this that worked great (it broke because of an accident on my part) as well.  However, today I was watching the internet and it looked like the monitor quickly shut off for a second. I moved the screen forward slightly after it had come back on and the computer suddenly shut off.  It will not come back on. When it is only using the battery the power button will not light up. When I plug in the power adapter, the power button will light up and turn off every second or so, but nothing else happens, no fan, no hard drive spinning etc... Is there any other way to diagnose this? I tried the manual but there was no information on light patterns or any precautions if it will not turn on.  I've tried turning unplugging the battery and holding down the power button, but to no avail...

Answer:Lenovo Edge 15, suddenly powered off and not turning back on

I just ran into this exact issue on my U530 Touch. I was just sitting there using it, unplugged, but the battery not about to die, and it just turns off randomly. When I try to turn it on, the power button lights up for a split second in response to me touching it, but that's all that happens. I've tried both plugged in and not and neither cause much of a reaction. Any ideas?

Hello, I was playing a Steam game last night and all of a sudden without warning the keyboard suddenly stops working.  At first I thought it was the game so I randomly clicked around and nothing worked. I was somehow able to exit the game but the keyboard has stopped working completely. Meaning the Capslock light doesn't turn on, the numlock light doens't turn on either. I have a Windows 8.1 just to let you know.  I have tried the following. 1. Going into control panel and turning off the filter keys and toggle keys. Didn't work. 2. Going into Device Manager and uninstalling the keyboard and re-installing. Didn't work. 3. Went into Registry and messed with the UpperFiler like they told me. Didn't work.  The only thing left is a factory reset then??  I had to buy a USB keyboard and it's pretty annoying.  I was wondering if I accidentally locked the keyboard?? I don't know what else is there.  Are there any other solutions? Please let me know. Thanks. 

Answer:Lenovo Edge 15 here, keyboard suddenly stopped working

Hi BassFan ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community.
 
Well you have done the WIndows troubleshooting pretty well , both on registry and sticky keys.  External keyboard working , and may also be working with windows onscreen keyboard too. 
 
I would hold up the factory reset for now, knowing that it would erase everything n your harddrive and that you would need to reinstall and download all your applications and games again.
 
Before you decide on that , best to check if that keyboard is physically broken or not.
 
Turn off the pc , use Novo button (page 7 of your manual ) to turn on , Try going to the BIOS and see if the arrow keys would work , time and date to test the number keys , security password for the letters ( just for testing, don't save password).
Just press the power button to turn off , and leave the BIOS or exit without saving on Exit tab .
If internal keyboard keys works on the BIOS then you can try system restore or even factory reset, 
Loading BIOS Default can also refresh the settings . (exit tab choices or F9 load defaults / F10 to save and exit)
 
Your hardware manual can show step to reseat  keyboard if you a tech but if you have an active warrantythen best to use it .
Else check your warranty and call in tech support for repair.
Hope every goes well . Have us updated here too so that we can share it among the community.
 
 
Regards,

Hi, I bought an Windows 7 Edge 11 almost 6 months ago (20th March, 2011).  It has been properly cared for and stored correctly when not in use.  I am fastidious in such matters.  Despite the reasoanbly light use it recieves, it has ground to a halt. Four days ago, I closed the lid and put into it's default hibernation state.  As my partner wished to use it half an hour later, I opened the lid and powered it up.  At this point, it took almost three minutes to bring up the "switch users" screen.  After logging in, it took well over five minutes to display the desktop.  After this, the entire machine became unresponsive.  Twenty minutes later, I performed a hard shut down (held power button for 5 seconds). After rebooting, both the boot and login process was noticeably longer. I managed to get into msconfig to disable some of the remaining Lenovo bloatware (powerbar kept making the system stall).  I also disabled some other non-critical applications. At present, boot and login is about normal, but the system will only remain stable for about three minutes (depending on applications used / buttons pressed).  After which, the system begins to sieze up.  When this happens, there is a faint but distinctive sound that emanates from the right-hand side of the keyboard (beneath the carriage return). You can listen to it here: http://www.4shared.com/audio/cELVnOR3/LenovoMP3.html WARNING: You'l...

how to save edge window size when opening
I like Edge but I don't like to have to re-size it everytime I open it the first time.

my desktop pc's edge browser is defaulted on 75%. I tried changing it, but it keeps going back even if I close the browser and start a new page.
my surface is also stuck on 175% which I'm okay with but damn its annoying.
ive played through settings. there's an option of Reading View Font size, and I change it and nothing.

Answer:How do I default the text size on the Edge browser?

that's too exactly what I did and nothing. still nothing.

I've noticed this odd text display on some sites, but not all, websites using Google Chrome. MS Edge displays the same text correctly. I also use Chromium browser on Ubuntu Linux which displays correctly as well. The website is Canonwatch. The font will display a single "f" okay but not double "ff"s. It seem to be a text bloggers type in, not the webpage's standard font.
Anyways, just seems weird. Any ideas?

Answer:Odd text size with Google Chrome, not with MS Edge

Things like this drives me crazy. I'll beat my head into a wall until I find an answer. No need for medics, I found an answer to my question.

I have no idea how to setup a webpage but I played with Inspect trying to understand. Using Inspect on this webpage under Styles I noticed a line that said font-family: inherit. When I used Chrome's Font Changer extension to override to a different font the new font was listed next to font-family instead of "inherit".

When seeing this I did some searches & found it recommended how to find the inherit font would be under Computed which stated / font-family: & listed "Helvetica Neue", arial, sans-serif as fonts. I remembered that I installed Helvetica Neue Bold on my PC long before trying Chrome. And, the font did have a bold look to it. Perhaps Helvetica Neue Normal would've displayed properly but I only had bold installed. After uninstalling Helvetica Neue Bold the font at this website displayed correctly.

I also checked MS Edge & it also listed the same inherit font options as Chrome did. Why it didn't use Helvetica Neue Bold I have no idea. I'm just glad I figured it out. Now I can stop beating my head!

Yesterday mid-day my Edge browser screen-font-size suddenly went from "normal" to miniscule (see attached image).
At the time I was reading info on a sports web-site. Just prior to that my touch-pad (ASUS laptop) suddenly reverted
to having the touch-pad feature "TAP" as ON, and because I have a small shake in my hand, this feature most-often causes problems.

When I converted from Win 8.1 to Win10 a few weeks ago I immediately searched for and found the option
(under ASUS Smart Gesture app) and turned all TAP features off. It worked fine until yesterday. I searched
for possible solutions and discovered I could not access ASUS Smart Gesture, so I re-installed it- that feature
is now turned off again, but I cannot get Edge to display in normal font-size. That's the only place it occurs

I have reverted to Internet Explorer v11 for now, but would appreciate if someone knows of a fix or could suggest
where to look to give me some ideas.

Thanks

Answer:Miniscule display size in MS Edge Browser

Press [Ctrl] +[0]

That's Control and Zero.


It's likely you may have accidentally performed a "pinch-zoom" on the touchpad. Check if you can disable this feature if the touchpad settings.

I have setup Google as my default search engine in Edge.

If I open a new tab, and see "Where to next?" I have a problem that if I enter a search that has a "." it will fail.

i.e. Search for

"how to boot from NVMe m.2 SSD"

I get an error saying:
Hmm, we can't reach this page.

Try this
?Make sure you?ve got the right web address: http://how%20to%20boot%20from%20nvme%20m.2%20ssd
?Refresh the page
?Search for what you want

If I take out "." it works.

Has anybody seen this?

Hi, it depends- if you mean an exact search using " " to exactly specify the search string as here:

Then you get no results. (That's DuckDuckGo in Firefox). Don't know why you get such an obscure message with Edge.

In general the upgrade path to Windows 10, starting from a W7 machine that went to W8 and then to W8.1 wasn't very smooth, but in the end, I have a fresh installation of Windows 10 on my box (for the record, I had to resize the system partition but the message to do so was cryptic and I had to download a third-party repartitioning tool, I wasn't given the chance to preserve my apps because setup decided to change my default language and then informed me that I can't preserve my apps due to the different language settings and, finally, even though the installer assured me that there were no compatibility problems with my machine, my scanner is apparently incompatible).
Anyway, this thread is about Edge: Keyboard shortcuts don't work on it. CTRL+T, CTRL+W, CTRL+F... nothing works. Everything works in IE, but the oh so hyped Edge ignores them.
Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas?

(I uploaded all 6 of my screenshots on Flickr to make it easier to share/view)

Windows 10 Problem | Flickr

Ok so I turned on my laptop like normal a few days ago, and I noticed everything on my laptop is smaller. (I explain in detail in the next paragraph) I tried looking all over online but it was no help. Anyways, so I decided to post my problem here to find a solution, and I put my screenshots on a Flickr so you guys can see what I'm seeing. I haven't downloaded anything recently, or messed with/done anything abnormal with my laptop either.

Image 1: This is what I see when I open up my laptop and notice everything is smaller. This includes the icons, the taskbar, chrome windows and text within windows. So literally everything has gone smaller. I also noticed it takes longer for my mouse to travel across the screen, but I think that's because the mouse is smaller too.
When I go into settings and raise the zoom to 125% (You can only choose 100% or 125%, there is no higher, lower or in between) it sets my windows back to normal, or so it seems.

Image 2: When I go into settings and raise the zoom to 125% (You can only choose 100% or 125%, there is no higher, lower or in between) it sets my windows back to normal, or so it seems.

Image 3: When I opened up the ZIP opener, I noticed that the text is significantly more blurred than what it usually is, as if it has been zoomed in. This is when I decided I couldn't just leave the settings how they were and needed a solution.

Hello All,
I have an Hp 1315v all-in-one that I have been using daily for several years without major problems...
until yesterday.
All of a sudden, it is printing invoices and labels at 50% of the normal size and I can't get it to stop.

I've checked printer settings from PayPal label printing page, from properties in "printers" from the Start button, and also from the actual print preview page before printing - all settings appear to be correct:
8.5 x 11
portrait
100% actual document

This morning I unplugged the printer and restarted the computer - no change.

It will copy just fine. The problem seems to be information between the computer and the printer??

Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

Thanks!
sandy

PS: the computer is an HP pavilion a200y
Last night, after suffering for weeks with the new Trend Micro Titanium, I uninstalled it - but the problem occurred before the uninstall. I also installed a new black ink cartridge - I *think* the problem began after that.
