If u b wanting thingz REEELY REEELY BIG u kin turning on deh Magnifier.

I have Windows Vista, other versions of Windows may be a little different.

To start the Magnifier:

  • Click on “Start”
  • Click on “Control Panel”
  • Click on “Ease of Access Center”
  • Click on “Make the computer easier to see”.
  • Scroll down to “Make things on the screen larger”
  • Check the “Turn on Magnifier” box.
  • Click “Save”.

A set up window for the Magnifier will appear.  And a Magnifier Window will open at the top of your screen.  It will follow your mouse around on your screen and put whatever is near your mouse in the magnifier.

In the set up window you will have several options to play with, including the scale factor (how big you want the print in the magnifier window to be — anything from x1 to x16.) You can dock the magnifier on the top, bottom, left, or right of your screen; or have it un-docked.  The default is Top. Adjust things to suit you, then minimize the set up window.

    3> Clear cookies and cache.

    8> Voila – the new abatar should show up in a few minutes/hours/days.
