View Full Version : Damn Ctrl key

I knew it did this, but still drives me nuts, as I always forget which key, and then have to do a search to find out it was the Ctrl key. Anyway, if you hold this key down, and then use your wheel mouse, you can change the font size of the browser text you are reading. I made mine much larger by accident. Had to do a search to find out how to correct it. But here's the funny thing...

I am often leaning forward in my chair when I can't read the screen. Sometimes I want to lean back in my chair and read, but my eyes are dying.

So why not just leave it with the larger font? Or why didn't I increase the font purposely when I had issues in the past?

Go ahead, you can say what I'm thinking - because I'm a frickin idiot!! :laugh:

I'm going to mail you a 12" magnifying glass that you can tape to your screen. :smoke:

One of my early frustrations with Ctrl is that the keydown method using the Ctrl key wreaks havoc, even after the code has completed. Imagine how unpopular a software application would become if it sends a keydown, but never a keyup on the Ctrl.

I just go to Chrome settings and use the zoom settings. I hate it when I accidentally do the CTRL button for anything.
