How do I change the appearance of a Web page in AOL Desktop v10.1?

With AOL Desktop you can change the way you view Web pages to suit your preference. You can increase the size of the Web page you're visiting, use high contrast, and remove background images for easier viewing.

How-To's

How do I Resize the Web Page for easier viewing?

The Zoom Page In feature resizes the entire page, including images. The Web page is fully functional regardless of its viewing size. Zoom Page In affects only the current Web page, which means that any subsequent pages you visit will be viewed in its default size.

To increase the size of the Web page:
1. Navigate to a desired Web page.
2. Right-click the Web page, select Power Browsing, select Page Display, and then click Zoom Page In.

Note: If the images are different from what you see on your computer, you do not have the latest version of AOL Desktop software. Please install the latest version of AOL Desktop v10.1 software.

To return the Web page to its normal size:
Right-click the Web page, select Power Browsing, select Page Display, and then click Zoom Page Out.

Note: You can also click the Reload (F5) button on your browser to return the Webpage to its regular size.

How do I use high contrast?

You can set the AOL Desktop Browser to a high contrast color scheme to help read hard-to-see or poorly-designed Web pages, providing a black background with white text and blue hyperlinks.

To use high contrast:
1. Navigate to a desired Web page.
2. Right-click the Web page, select Power Browsing, select Page Display, and then click High Contrast.

Note: To remove the contrast, click the Reload (F5) button on your browser.

Note: To restore the background image, click the Reload (F5) button for your browser.
