Bottom line my power supply on my compac computer fried. I had this computer in my kids room so I thought i'd use it,However, this acer does not have microsoft windows operating system installed. When I go into this computer and call up webkinz to take care of my pets I run in to the problem of the acer screens are so big I can't get through all of the webkinz windows because the next page prompts are off screen and I am unable to access them. Is there a way that I can resize the acer screens?

Hi :)

Please go up to the top taskbar in Ubuntu and click on the gold&blue circle to open the FireFox Web Browser. Alternatively go up to the top taskbar and click on

Applications - Internet - Firefox

Either way i think the website you want is

With most websites if you press either Ctrl key and + or roll the mouse wheel away from you then then the web-page gets a lot larger. I think you want to press Ctrl and roll the mouse wheel towards you?
Please let us know how this goes!
Good luck and regards from
