Resizable Text Boxes

Friday, October 26th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Resizable Text Boxes

Awhile back, we talked about using resizable text boxes as a feature in Firefox. But, what about all of you who use Internet Explorer or Opera as your main Web browser? You all want some resizable text boxes too, don’t you? Well, that’s exactly what I’m going to show you how to do right now!

First of all, to refresh your memory, let’s go over what resizable text boxes are. Resizable text boxes allow you to add more room when you need the extra space on certain Web pages. For example, let’s say you were commenting someone on their blog post and you ran out of room. You just want more space to type, right?! Well, all you have to do is click on the resizable text box bookmarklet and your cursor will turn into a crossbar. Next, hold down your mouse button and just drag it until you have the size box you want. That’s it!

To install a bookmarklet, all you need to do is bookmark the link onto your Links toolbar. You can find more in depth information on how to do that here.

Also, here’s the link you need for the Resizable Text Bookmarklet: FormTextResizer.

Again, this will work with many browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Netscape Navigator and others. Now, you never have to worry about running out of room again. I hope you enjoy this one!
