Default changed my resolution but only on this site

Was dragging my finger around on the mouse pad and somehow I changed the resolution on gl4x4 but nowhere else. Checked setting & resolution is still set high for the entire computer and any other web sites. But this site has the screen blown up so it looks like about 640 x 480. Can't figure it out. What did I do?

- go to Control Panel
- go to Edit Personal Settings
- click on age
- change age value from 100 to 55 or younger
- setting should go back to default
haha

My touchpad does the same thing. You can try holding shift and scrolling on the mouse pad.

You didn't change the resolution, you are just zoomed in. You can hold control and then use the wheel on the mouse to zoom in or out. Or there should be a percent value on the bottom right of the screen that you can change.

I don't have a scroll wheel. Just a traditional mouse pad on a laptop. I've tried hitting shift and control and moving the mousepad but it doesn't help. I think you are onto something with the zoom but I can't figure out what I accidentally hit to do it. No percentage value either

Forget about the mouse pad. Pressing control and the + or - button at the same time will zoom in or out.



With you general lack of computer knowledge, how do you do important things like find porn?

Control +/- did it. Thanks. Not sure how I did it in the first place but that fixed it.

What is porn? Is that where you can see a girl's petticoat & ankles?

Glad you got it corrected!

Oh and invest in a wireless mouse! So much easier to work with!
