Changing Views

If you have opened a web page and the text is too small to read you can make it bigger. I will use the Wikipedia web page as an example. If I look at Wikipedia in the Browse Activity it looks something like this:

enwiki

I can now enlarge the text by first clicking the View tab at the top of the page (below the Location Bar):

view

At the top left are some icons that look like magnifying glasses:

magnifying

If you click the magnifying glass on the left the text on the web page gets smaller. If you click the one on the right the text gets bigger. You can click as many times as you want until the text is the size you desire. If I click several times on the enlarging magnifying glass my Wikipedia text gets very big:

browsebigtext

Full Screen

We can also force the Browse Activity to use more of the screen when displaying web pages. To do this press the Full Screen icon at the top of the View Tab (next to the magnifying glasses):

fullscreen

The web page now takes up all of your display. To return to the "normal" view you need to click the same icon as it appears at the top right of the web page:
