Call me an idgit when it comes to using the computer, but I just discovered THE most important key combination for anyone over fifty.
Even more important than ctrl alt delete.
Yes. ctrl +
I've been using Firefox to blog on my laptop the past few days (since Internet Explorer has been so twitchy) and noticed that the type font was SO teeny tiny.
I mean itty bitty.
And being a slightly older lady...ahem...I sometimes find that really small type can be a really big headache to deal with. Sure I could put on my reading glasses but I prefer to enlarge the font when viewing tiny print.
So looked around but I couldn't find the "zoom" function on Firefox like I could when I was on Internet Explorer.
Curious, I googled what to do about it and found out that I can make things much bigger just by hitting the key combination ctrl +
How easy was that?
I made things too big.
So then I tried ctrl -
Hey, look at that!
Things get smaller!
It's Freaken Magic!
And it works no matter where you're at or what you're doing on your computer!
Oh, the power I have at my finger tips is inspiring! I immediately consider how much easier my life would be if I could do that throughout my day. Just imagine what I could do!
I could ctrl + my jeans after having too much to eat.
Better yet, I could ctrl - my butt and ctrl - my jeans all at the same time!
I could ctrl - the weeds and bugs out in my garden and then I could ctrl + my tomatoes, my strawberries and apples. My flowers too!
The possibilities are endless!
I could ctrl the world! Whaaa Haa Ha!
Then again, I don't want to ctrl the world. I've got enough to do. I'd just like to ctrl my little patch of heaven.
But lets keep this between you and me for now OK?
If SM gets in on the action there's no telling what would be ctrl + around here.
