Lightbulb Solution: Tips on how to set browser settings for better viewing

Please Login to Remove!

Well it only took me just over a week to figure this one out.

I was sick of not being able to read the text in a web page and having to constantly keep zooming in. Found out how to change that.

I opened the browser, went to Options, General Properties.

Setting Should Say
Default browser: Internet Browser
Default Font Family: BBAlpha Sans
Default Font Size: 10
Minimum Font Size: 10
Minimum Font Style: Plain
Default View: Column (change this here and then when you are in a web page and want to see page view just hit 'z', having this set to column view makes all the difference)

the next few I left the same, but changed the following:
Prompt before:
checked Closing Browser on Escape - made it much easier to close completely
Closing Modified pages should be checked

and then saved.

In the Browser Configuration option, I checked Support JavaScript, but not allow JavaScript popups. The rest of the check boxes are checked.

Mucho better experience!!!

Hope this helps those of you that didn't already know this.
