Have a Macbook pro question regarding display/screen size

About 5 years old. On the internet betting horses. I move between tracks and also use excel to do calculations. As I am moving and switching between internet and excel I somehow make the internet display too large to fit on screen. How do i change it back?
Hopefully I can get an answer before next race.

1. it depends :)

If it's Safari that's making things bigger, then CMD + or CMD - can be used to make things bigger and smaller. Also Safari preferences, web sites, page zoom might have something for you to clear.

Also in Safari, control click on the toolbar to customize it and add the "aA" control (really small-A and big-A) to increase/decrease the size.

But maybe it's also the accessibility "zoom" stuff ... I don't know about you, but my eyes are less than great. I've enabled "control scroll" as a zoom-in and zoom-out feature so I can quickly zoom into a part of the screen that's hard to see. The setting for this is in system-preferences, accessibility, zoom.
