Did You Know?

Have you ever visited a website only to discover the font size was way to small or outlandishly large?  Did you know there is a fast and easy way to adjust it to fit your very need?  I love this tid-bit of information because I use it all the time and I want to share it with you. 

Press and hold your "control/ctrl" button (bottom left on your keyboard) and then press your "-/+" button, depending on which way you want to adjust the font.  As you do this you'll see the font size change right before your very eyes!

Now give it a try on my blog and see if it works.  You don't have to highlight anything.

(Waiting...)

Did it work?  Did you like it?  If so, congratulations!  You now have the world by the tail and can go out and surf the web with greater skill and dexterity!  

Let me know if this works and how well you like it.
