    I just received this tip in an e-mail... try it!





    It really does work!
    THIS IS FOR ALL YOU OLD PEOPLE (It works for you
    younguns, as well).....................................................................

    I just found out and thought I'd pass this on. It's very useful when
    trying to read small print (especially in the early hours). If you hold
    down the Ctrl key on your key board and then turn the small wheel in the
    middle of your mouse away from you or towards you, the print size will
    change - it will either get larger or smaller - depending on which way you
    turn the wheel

    Just try it.

    On Safari there is a button to make the text bigger or smaller, so that works great for me. Also in the Mac Mail there is the same thing, you can make the text bigger or smaller.

    One more reason why I love my Mac. :)

    Now I won't get as many wrinkles from squinting.
    Thanks for the great tip!
    I wonder if there are others out there that we can share.
    I am currently looking for a computer course....BASIC

    I am emailing this to my sister right now since she is legally blind and is always trying to enlarge the print on her computer.

    Thank you.

    This is really great. I am always learning something new.

    But my headings are the only thing that gets bigger. I'll have to try on something else.

    Thanks for the tip!!!!!

    What about a laptop? The nearly one and only thing mine didn't come with was a mouse, or a wheel.
