Re: Inserting a partial row in excel 2013

Yes. Select columns A-h, hold down your control key, and hit the + key on
the number keypad. It'll ask you if you want to move things down or to the
right.

Hello Listers,

Is there a way to insert extra rows in Excel for only columns A through
H for example?

Thank you, and Seasons Greetings,

Brian, thanks for your assistance. I now know what to do in the future, if the problem rears its ugly head. I don't know why this is happening, but just now things on the Net seem to be working as they should, after my son messed around with some settings.
I'm using an old Toshiba laptop that is over five years old. It does have a full keyboard but I still use an external keyboard for easier maneuvering. It's running W 7.
Really, I appreciate the help, but don't want to be a pain. I've got my work-around, and sometimes that the best thing, as long as it works, when there's a mystery.

What version of Windows are you running? Is this problem
limited to IE or do you have the same size issues with the other
browsers as well? I wish I could help more, but I am truly having
trouble envisioning just precisely what is occurring here, hence the
request for screen shots. Also, what is the make and model of your laptop?

BTW, if you've got a full sized keyboard on your laptop you
should not need to turn NumLock on (or off) in order to access the plus,
minus, asterisk (times sign), slash (divide sign) or Enter key on the
number pad. Since these keys don't have dual function on any machine
I've ever seen they produce their respective characters independent of
the state of the Num Lock key. Try it again just to verify, but I tried
it here (sans JAWS, mind you) and the state of the Num Lock key has no
effect on those keys that don't do double duty on the number pad.

It's a 15 inch screen, but when I do what Brian said to do with the control plus numpad plus all is well for him then.

I'm not sure which "that" you're referring to in your "that

Remember, too, that JAWS can and does occasionally hijack

exit JAWS temporarily to determine whether it's what's causing any

[Reason: Request for screen capture]

Maria,

The default, unless you as an end user change it for a
specific web page, is for the browser to present the page at 100%. Now,
if you're using something like a screen magnifier that layers over top
of everything, but should make everything larger.

I have never seen a web browser present *every* page
consistently at less than 100%. If you are seeing this happen
consistently in, say, IE then I'd need to research if there is some
global setting of which I've been unaware that instructs the browser to
present all web pages at some pre-determined percentage of "natural"
size. From what I can get from what you've written it sounds like
something's causing all your webpages in a given browser to be presented
in reduced size, and that is quite unusual.

If it's possible to get someone to help you to get a screen
capture of precisely what you're seeing (which is done with ALT+PrtSc),
paste it into MS-Paint or some other image processing software, save it,
and post it that would be immensely helpful to me.

Thanks but is there a way to just get the size to stay the same for each web page or does it have to be changed each time?
I prefer IE, but son and hubby like Firefox.

Maria,

May I ask what web browser you are using?

No matter which one you're using generally CTRL+Num Pad Plus
will increase the size/magnification of a web page being displayed and
CTRL+Num Pad Minus will decrease it. I have seen many people
accidentally reduce the magnification on a webpage or webpages they
visit frequently and if they're blind or vision-impaired and not
literally looking at those pages it makes no difference and, of course,
they have no way of knowing it's even occurred. In addition, most
browsers can and do remember how you set your magnification for any web
page you visit and when you visit it again it immediately applies those
settings.

Most browsers also support a way of doing an instant "jump to
100%," that is, normal size on a given web page, but how that's done varies.

If you're in a pinch I suggest that your sighted helper try
CTRL+Num Pad Plus to bump up the size that the page is displayed in.
Each hit takes it a little bit larger.
