Yes, change the user settings on your computer.
This is for MS Windows.
Left click start, go to settings, then to control panel, and then click display. Click the settings tab then choose the scren resolution. Example 1280 x 1024 But please realize, the higher the numbers, the small the text gets, but the window size also goes smaller. There should be 5 different settings, so experiment with what will work for you best.

forgot to mention. the index screen is centered and fine. it is the view of the individual categories i.e. diver ducks, etc., and the posts on each index which are way oversized. sure has me puzzled.

Does it happen in every post? or just some? I know in some posts that have pictures or really long links it will do it. Like if someone puts in a link from cabelas, they are always really long, and will extend the size of the post. So will the large pics.

This site is setup to fit an 800 x 600 default resolution. From Admin today when I asked him to look into it, and he is not going to reset it.

Same for me, and it is rather annoying. Anyone figured out what it causing it. If it is something I'm doing please tell me how to fix it.

Hold down CONTROL and scroll backwards one ROLL/click on your mouse.

ctrl + scroll back

this will definitely make the text/skin smaller, scroll forward and it will get bigger.
You can scroll several clicks, bigger or smaller.
