Monday Mystery

All of a sudden, my Facebook page was gigantic. 
I couldn't see anything on the sides! I closed out. I re-opened. I re-started my computer. I even shut it down. Nothing worked. 

Then I went to my tech gurus by emailing Stephanie and Mindy. Both said they couldn't help me because they only use their phone for Facebook. 

So, I did what I always do when I need to find something out: I looked it up via the internet. Here's what I found:

Click the drop-down box next to "Page Zoom" under the "Web Content" section.  What??? Set the zoom to "100%." FTS! Alternately, you can press the keyboard shortcut of "Ctrl" and "0" to return Facebook to its original viewing size. WTF?

There are so many things wrong with this. I started by following the instructions. I looked everywhere to find "Page Zoom" or  “Web Content”—couldn’t find either, so couldn't re-set the "zoom" to 100%. The last thing, “press Ctrl and O”---worked immediately.

Why would that not be the first thing to do? It’s certainly faster!!! Why would they even need to mention the first part at all? Keep it simple!!

Still, the mystery remains as to how that happened to begin with. I have a feeling it's just one more problem with my computer. 

Another annoying thing that has just started to happen, I have to hit the space bar two or three times to get it to actually space. I'm a really  fast typist, so that is really slowing me down. As soon as I finish this, I'm going to re-start my computer to see if that helps! 

Another mystery!

Oh, and if "FTS and WTF" are mysteries to you---think bad words that I do not say!


  1. Thank goodness that google can help get us out of trouble, but yes, it does make you wonder how on earth it zoomed in on its own!

  2. My desktop is an all-in-one, so I love that I can enlarge and shrink by just pinching the screen like on my phone and tablet. So much easier than trying to remember control key strokes.
