Hi folks. Somebody put a helpful piece on here a few weeks ago about how to enlarge/reduce images on screen. It was mentioned on a thread not connected to computer technology and not an exclusive post. It involved keeping the Ctrl pressed down whilst using the wheel on the mouse. But there is also another key to press. I don't seem to be able to find it. Anybody out there know what else I press? Cheers!

That was quick and thanks. I was trying to enlarge some print on an Outlook Express e-mail message and it just wasn't working. However, it is working just as you have helpfully pointed out on anything else. Obviously it doesn't control the size of print or images on an Outlook Express e-mail message. Bit baffling. Cheers!

just to clarify, that's the + and - keys on the numeric keypad. ctrl-0 reverts to default on Firefox but doesn't work on IE.

As the OP said, it doesn't work at all in Outlook Express. Typical Micro$oft lack of consistency.
