Simple question! Is there a way to get the forum to fit my window so I don't have to side scroll? It is rather annoying after a while. Thanks.

You can also hold down the control key and move your mouse wheel.

I think Mentalcase is looking for a way to make the forum fit a smaller screen.  ¿

Are you wanting to change the resolution of your computer?  If that's what you are wanting do a right click on your desk top then go to properties then go to settings and it should show you what your screen resolution is.  The higher the resolution the smaller everything will be like text.

  no.. i don't think so .    I'm on a Mac so i'm not sure the things you mention will work with it.   I don't much mind side scrolling to see the entire forum window.       .. thanks Hilander  :)

I have firefox and windows.  Don't know anything about a Mac, if it has one you might try looking at the control panel, on mine you can get to it there.  I bet you could find out on line.
