Don't know what I accidently did to my MAC, but now when I go on line to read mail, etc., The screen is small. I've tried everything. I'm a novice at solving computer issues and this one really has me stumped.!

Thank you for any help you can offer.

I'm not sure what you mean by "the screen is small". If you want to resize a window, then in the upper left are three buttons - red (close), yellow (minimize), green (maximize). If you want to adjust the size of the windows there are three little diagonal lines in the lower right corner of a window, just click and drag.

Does F11 to toggle the screen size work on a Mac? I honestly don't know. If not maybe something comparable.

DA

Thank you both. I did try the green button. The window enlarged vertically but not horizonally. Still don't know what to do. Any more suggestions? Thanks!

Does Option-Command-+ help?

That's from http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1343

If that doesn't work, maybe something else on that page will?

Did you grab the three little lines in the lower right and drag to resize the window?
