    Someone screwed with my computer or internet settings and the icons and so forth on the desktop are normal as they were before, but now the internet pages are all huge and gargantuan in their text and the size of the screen I have to constantly scroll back and forth because so much info is off screen.

    How do I fix this?

    It is all internet pages in general that this is happening with, not just GT.

    If you are using interenet Explorer..
    go to view -- text size -- medium
    To bring it back to normal

    Netscape.. View -- text size-- decrease

    hope this helps..

    THANK YOU!! That did it!! Yes, I am computer illiterate. I had tried changing the screen resolution but that made everything change, inlcuding the desktop stuff.

    Thank you again.

    Just in case anyone else runs into this prob...

    Another really easy way to fix this, if you're using a mouse with a scroll wheel...

    Hold Control
    Scroll wheel up to make smaller
    Down to make bigger...

    I have a mouse with a scroll wheel and I just tried that and it works, that is very cool and nice to know, could come in handy some time when trying to read the fine print.
