    I don't have my zoom ON, and yet...when I go to certain things, like my universal access panel, the text on there is HUGE!!

    My friend is having the same problem, only he has it worse than I do. When he opens Safari, everything on there is HUGE! Images...text...EVERYTHING! It won't fit on the screen! It even happens with the forum I own myself (which fits on the screen PERFECTLY). He can't see HALF of the forum without moving around!

    WHAT is going ON?! We didn't touch any of our settings!!

    Oh...and for my friend, this is happening on EVERY account on his computer!

    Any reasons why it's just the page itself? It's not that the whole SCREEN is big...it's just the page itself, along with some text in the system. It's not ZOOMED IN, so much as it's just BIG.

    There is some kind of keyboard shortcut for zooming-in the screen, it does what you're saying, making everything huge. I accidentally "discovered it once" and wondered the same thing.

    edit: never mind. haha.

    If it's just the universal panel then that's normal, it's meant to be big enough for semi-blind people to read it
