My Fluther Screen is Really Small. Do you have any ideas on how to fix it?

Asked by RedPowerLady (12454 points ) April 26th, 2009

Yesterday when Fluthering I pushed some random button(s) on accident and now my Fluther screen is really small. There is a lot of blue background and a small fluther screen. Any ideas on how to fix this??

@sandystrachan That’s it. Thank you so much. Your a genius!! Now how did I make it small so I don’t do that again?? Was it ctrl—??

If you’re hitting control and using your scroll wheel on your mouse that can change it too. :)

Control . Don’t press random buttons

@sandystrachan I didn’t mean to press random buttons. As I said, it was an accident.

@asmonet Thanx. I have no idea what it was that caused it to go small. I’ll keep that in mind for sure.

@RedPowerLady Even i press random buttons it helps with boredom, and i think everyone has had this happen to them at some stage including me.

@RedPowerLady I had a cat walk across my keyboard, and somehow the entire screen turned sideways. It was really funny. It turns out there is a button with a wavy flag on it (no letters or words) that actually causes that. I have no idea why.

@YARNLADY OMG that is too funny. I don’t know what I’d do if that happened. LOL

@YARNLADY That is a shortcut key to your start menu !

@sandystrachan I seldom use the extraneous keys on the keyboard, anyway. Just the alpha/numeral ones and the mouse. I have no idea what they are for, and it doesn’t seem to matter, since I get everything done I need to get done.

@YARNLADY I was just informing you of what that key did and how it wasn’t for turning your screen sideways as you stated . If you mean however that your taskbar was on the side , rather than at the bottom that happened because you clicked and dragged it there .

YARNLADY's avatar

@sandystrachan OK, thanks. I see that it does that, but what happened, while I was in the kitchen about 20 feet away from my laptop, the cat ran across the board, and when I came back, the entire screen was sideways, with the top bar on the right side, the words facing that way, just as if I had turned my entire laptop on it’s side, but it was only the screen. I asked on the question site I used then, and they told me how to get it upright again. It was so long ago, I forgot how.

@YARNLADY You would click on your ATI or similar icon ( depending your graphics card ) and select the correct orientation .

a fast way to zoom in and out when youre on firefox is to HOLD ctrl, and just scroll up to zoom in, and scroll down to zoom out =] you probably scrolled down while accidently holding onto ctrl
