I am sure I have done this in the past. Making the script in the messages bigger. Want to do it on my new computer but can't see how I made my Garden.Org messages bigger.

Not sure this is what you want, but I just go to the top right of my screen where the three dots are and select from there.

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you.
Thank You. That worked perfectly!!!

I fixed it now so that it is not too small. Bigger text now so my old tired eyes see it much better. Thank You!! I tip my hat to you.

Well the 3 dots are part of of your browser menu, you can see it's not part of this site menu which is in the gray area.

I could be wrong but I thought that years ago I made the text bigger on this site only.
But the use the three dots menue works great to do what I wanted.


I have only had this new laptop for a week so am slowly learning my way around Windows 10.

I think I did that also, but then I think Dave changed things.

@Newyorkrita, don't know if you found a solution you're happy with yet, but if you hit the Ctrl key along with the += (plus key) repeatedly, this enlarges the text on this site ONLY. Hitting the Ctrl key along with the _- (minus key) repeatedly, reduces the text a notch with each time and it is for the current site ONLY. I just retested, left the site, returned to the site and it does indeed remember you set it for this site. I know this works on MS Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox and Brave (currently using) browsers at least, as I do it for certain sites where I do a lot of extensive reading in both of those browsers. Has always worked for me....for years. Maybe this is how you did it before? I think it is a function of Windows, and not tied to the browser, but I could be wrong on that thinking. I just know the process as I stated works for just the site you do it on. It remembers at the next visit there!
