Hi folks,

I would like to share one quite useful trick for MS Windows users [I've just learnt it after my 5 years of working with computer]:

If you want to quickly increase or decrease the size of the text font you can do it by simultaneous pressing the 'Control' button and rotating a scroll wheel of your mouth (or keyboard). This trick works in almost all windows including web-pages in your browser.

Regards,
Nikita Kobrin

P.S. I've read about it in The Tool Kit - a biweekly newsletter for translators.

Thanks, Nikita, this is just one of the many tricks I'm sure I don't know about. And thanks for the link too!

Cheers,

It only seems to change the viewing size not the font size Jul 9, 2004

This is neat but it only changes the display size not the actual font size - like, if you have 10 points, it is still 10 points. It did not work in Outlook though. But thanks for the trick; it's great.
