If you hold down 'Ctrl' on your keyboard and scroll up or down with your mouse wheel/ trackpad, you can adjust the size of the page. Press 'Ctrl' and '0' to to reset it to it's original size.

That's cool I didn't know you could do that. Thanks

If you have vertical slider on your laptop's trackpad, use that while holding down 'Ctrl'. If you don't have a vertical slider, you can still do it by pressing 'Ctrl' and '=' to make it bigger and 'Ctrl' and '-' to make it smaller.

it doesnt work on aol?
any other ideas?

Change browser. I used to use AOL as my browser but found it had limitations; I couldn't post images on HUKD for instance. I now use Firefox and find it much easier and smoother to use. It's also more customizable. You could download it, try it for a bit and if you don't like it, go back to using AOL, although I'd be amazed if you did!

I also use Firefox's sister Thunderbird - an email client - to access my emails. It sends and retrieves my emails without me having to log in to the heavy AOL page full of adds and news about who did what to whom. If try Thunderbird it's worth noting that it will sync both accounts, so if you delete a message on one, it will delete it from the other. My previous email client never did that and I permanently deleted some messages I wanted to keep.

i have used firefox before and somtimes use chrome but im just used to aol
oO

I can't remember if I could adjust page sizes when I last used AOL a few years ago. There might be an answer on AOL's help pages, but I don't know for sure.
