making movie screen bigger

How do I make the screen I am watching a movie on bigger. I know how to do it, but for some reason it is staying small and I cant read the captions.

Look two buttons to the right of the Closed Captioning button. The last button on the right is a full screen button. Click the full screen button to make the movie bigger.

Re: making movie screen bigger

When I watch videos online, the bottom part of the video gets cut off and does not allow me to use any of the controls for the video. This happens randomly, but most of the time. Sometimes it is not cut off but it is not consistant with videos or times. I have tried restarting my computer and updating programs. How can I fix this?

It just sounds like your browser's view is either zoomed in or zoomed out too much. Under the view menu in your browser, choose Zoom to be "reset" or "actual size" and the video should play normally.

 

If you do not know how to do this, please tell me your operating system and browser settings so we can walk you through it.
