Hello,

Why can't I figure out how to easily change the font size of my browser without having to go into a setting/preference folders.

On a pc you just hold control or alt (can't remember which one) and use the scroll button on the mouse to increase or decrease the font size.

cntrl plus up scroll on my macbook pro only zoom's in the page like a disability feature. I want to still be able to scroll in the webpage when I increase the font and I don't like having to go into the file folders to adjust this simple preference.

can someone share with me the keystrokes I need to do to do this?

PC's cntrl or alt plus scroll in works for all browsers I've tried.



The other question I have is on battery life. Is it better to leave your laptop plugged in with a full charge or charge it till full, then drain the battery until empty, then charge again. That is what I heard is best for cell phones and was unsure for macbook pros.

In Safari and Firefox use the Apple key and the + sign to enlarge text, and the - sign to decrease the size of the text.

Command is the proper name for the "Apple" key. Thy are one in the same.
