    I create my own website. I had XP and Explorer 8. My website pages looked fine - all aligned.

    I just got win 7 and Exp 8. Suddenly sections of text on some of my web pages are off centre - when viewing on line. My new laptop has same screen size so that can't be it. Most of the pages are OK, some not.
    I don't know what this means? Does everyone with Win 7 see my pages like this? What do I do? If I adjust the page layout to suit my new view - it will then presumably be different on my old laptop with XP and I guess for anyone viewing with XP. :eek:

    Thanks for the advice. Sorry but I need a bit further explanations of where I can find such a thing?? XP virtual machine? I tried 'search' in win 7, but nothing.

    Thing is what you see is not necessarily what others face - you have to confirm that first!

    You may also consider installing a second or third browser on your PC and examine how your website looks in the different browser.
    Google Chrome
    Firefox
    Opera
    Safari
    etc...
