PBS has been changing the styles and type over the last few days.  Different browsers are showing up in different sizes.  I'd recommend restarting your browser.  And waiting as the changes get loaded and improved. 

You can try a different browser.  For me, Firefox is showing up larger than IE.

At this time, PBS does not yet offer various size fonts.  I'm hoping that will change with this style shift.

IF I hold down the Ctrl key and roll the middle mouse wheel up and down my screen zooms in and out.

You can also zoom your browser.  Ctrl plus the + key will enlarge the screen, Ctrl plus the - key will reduce the size.  Also in Firefox you can change the font size Tools/Options/Content/fonts and colors - click on advanced.  There you can change the minium font size.

If you hold down the CTRL button and hit the "+" key that will make the window you are using larger.  You can hit it several times if you like.  And the CTRL with the minus key "-" will make it smaller.  (The keys are next to each other, near the zero.)

If you have a scroll button on your mouse, you can do the same thing by holding down the CTRL key and scrolling the mouse button.


Whoops -- 2 of you beat me to itangle

I do not recommend turning off your computer using the power button.  That is called a 'cold boot' and you run the risk of losing whatever you were working on.  You can re-start a browser by selecting File-->Exit or File-->Close from the top menu on the browser.  (Different browsers have a different "close" menu item.)

To turn of your computer "correctly" you click the Start button the lower left corner of your screen and then select "Shut Down".
