Page fit to screen

I just got a new laptop with a widescreen and all my webpages are sitting in the middle off the screen with wide spaces at either side, can I fit my pages to the size off the screen. Thank You.

You can use the zoom function in your browser. Additionally, you may also want to consider increasing the DPI on your screen though this would generally just make text larger. The zoom function however from what I can tell seems to work the best. CTRL and the Plus Key generally should zoom in and minus to zoom out. This is with Internet Explorer. I rarely use Firefox or other browsers but I assume it's the same command or something similar.

Thanks Darician, so simple, but I am not computer literate.

That's ok. This same issue came up when my parents asked me about it right after I upgraded them to a widescreen monitor.

My son just told me to go to the bottom off the page and change my screen setting down their to wide, it's worked a treat.
