Default tiny site size in browser

Please Login to Remove!

I just recently upgraded from the 8300 to the 8900. One issue I'm having is that many of the websites I visit look very different in my new 8900 browser window. They are actually pretty small. Much smaller in comparison with my 8300.

I'm sure it's a setting I am unaware of. What I've tried so far is to enlarge the font & minimum font...but it seems to have no effect. I've also used the zoom function, and that does bring it in closer so I can actually read...however I would rather not use this every time I want to view a website.

Is there a way to permanately make my viewing more like how it was with my 8300? Or, is the zoom function the only way to go...? I hope I'm explaining this properly - it is like the entire site is just so tiny!

*note - it isn't a problem with sites that have a mobile option...those appear normal sized, but many of the sites I want to view do not have this.

You can goto, Options > General Properties, and set the text to a larger size and see if that works.

But I noticed the same thing, and wasn't quite happy at first with how small, not just the browser but everything in general. You warm up to it, give it a couple and it'll work out.

I agree,you do get use to it. To bad ya have to but at least the screens sharp enough to read the smallest words. If you have good eyesight.

Try Column View and see if that makes it more usable.
