Customer Question
Hi I hit some...

Hi I hit some key or other and the google page (and other things for which i use Chrome) fills almost the entire screen, obscuring in aol, for example, the whole leftmost column which lists the search function, the contact list key , etc. the little arrows do not work on the sides or the bottom. how to make the facepage contract back to reasonable size? thanks.

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had this issue with your A.O.L. account?

Since last night when i was working in gmail.

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

No. i was working in gmail, hit something and the gmail page also enlarged.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?

I closed down everything and rebooted, hoping all would return to normal when i reopened it, but no such luck.

Please IGNORE the automated offer by our system -- I do not have control over it...

In the upper right hand corner, do you see the box looking icon to the left of the X?

Click on it and it should reduce the size of the window

Now you should be able to put your cursor on the end of the window and resize it.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
