Just a reminder for those with weakening eyesight

I was finding myself this morning leaning in to read a tag and remembered that I could change font size using [control][ scroll].  I was a little worried that it wouldn't work on WikiTree, but it works fine and the only major effect is that a page becomes longer.  But I'll put up with it until get a stronger pair of glasses.

I didn't know that about [control] [scroll]. It works on MACs too, with [command][scroll]. I usually use [Command] [+] or [-] to make it little again
Dave you are a genius, I always have a magnifying aid handy to read "small print" on screen, didn't have a clue about [control] [scroll]. Duly noted in my book of brainwaves :) Thank you!!
Add me to the list of those who did not know this little trick. Thanks for informing the community!

I did know  Ctrl + enlarges (and Ctrl - decreases) the size.  Now I know Ctrl (while scrolling the mouse wheel) does the same.  Thanks.

And one more I learned a couple of weeks ago - Ctrl + 0 (zero) returns the screen to the original size.

Oh my!  I can't believe I was trying to read such fine print.
