have a desktop Yahoo Tech site with no tiles
Tiles are awful for desktop users--large monitor shows only two tiles and I must scroll to see more. A HUGE waste of screen real estate and the reason I no longer visit yahoo tech. Please retire the tiles to a mobile-only site and provide a list of text links (no photos or only tiny thumnails) for the desktop. I am not going to be reading news articles on a tiny phone, only on my large monitor.
It sounds like your screen resolution is pretty low. Yahoo is optimized for a 1024×786 resolution. If your screen resolution is lower, it may skew some of the webpages making them seem larger.
Search your operating system’s help site for “screen resolution” to learn how to change it. The screen resolution varies based on the capabilities of your display.
You can adjust your browser’s zoom settings using a couple easy keyboard shortcuts.
Zoom in – Press Ctrl + the plus key (+) on your keyboard.
Zoom out – Press Ctrl + the minus key (-) on your keyboard.
Hope this helps!
My screen resolution is 1024x768. (a standard monitor resolution, I don't know where you are getting 786 from unless it is a typo) On Yahoo Tech I can see only 2 complete tiles and parts of 2 others. Since the text is near the bottom of the tiles, I can only read the text for 2 tiles at a time unless the screen scrolls to see half of 4 tiles (no complete tiles). I counted the number of scroll clicks to get to the bottom of the tile list--40 (forty) clicks!!! If you had a view that showed text only, one could see all the article headings with only 2 clicks. Tile interface is useless and distracting on the desktop, and unprofessional looking for a tech site. It's like a picture book for children, not a newsfeed for professionals.
