Need to write a small program

I occasionally use a web based program that requires me to change the Display size so I can view all of the screen they send to me. Here's what I do manually:

1. START.......CONTROL PANEL......... DISPLAY.... change from Medium (125) to smaller (100) %

2. Log off ......Log on

3. Open Firefox browser........goto www.americangreetings

4. DO MY THING REGARDING A GREETING CARD

TO RETURN TO NORMAL

1.close www.americangreetings........ Close Firefox

2. START.......CONTROL PANEL......... DISPLAY.... change from smaller(100) to medium (125) %

3. LOG OFF.......LOG ON

I'm now back to my regular desktop. I would like to writr two files or one file with two optrions.

Wheres the best place to go for this.

With your Greetings card website open, hold down theleft Ctrl key and use your scroll wheel on the mouse to go bigger or smaller. This might do what you want! BTW yourlink in the post does not work, it should be www.americangreetings.com

The mouse wheel and CTRL key trick does not work when creating or editing a card. It does work on the other AG pages, but that isn't what I need. I have tried all the tricks I am aware of. the mouse wheel, the magnifier and resolution.

Well I don't think you will find what you want. 125% is the most used setting for the display so evryone else must be having the same problem. As this is a paid for service perhaps you should ask them for help. They have a Toll fre number!

If nothing else you can probably create a shortcut to bring up the control panel applet with the proper tab displayed. Try target lines such as
control desk.cpl display

I'm on a library computer here. It won't let me open command prompts or control panel to determine what works. But a little trial and error should go a long way:
