Zoom in on Android phone
When reading and responding to EE posts via the Chrome browser on my Android phone, I do not seem to be able to zoom in temporarily. Is there any way to make this happen?

Hello experts,
I would like to set up an AutoHotkey script to swiftly manage the following EE processes executed on a regular basis:
Insert-image which requires 3 mouse click:
Embed-image-1.pngEmbed-image-2.pngAttach a file which requires 3 mouse click:
Attach-file.pngI am aware that mouse click is complicated to manage with AutoHotkey however there must be a smart and swiftly way to manage this.
If you have some feedback and advice on this, please let me know.
Thank you for your help.
Since at least 19 hours, email notifications for new/accepted comment of monitored/participated questions are not sent anymore (on-site notifications are still working, and yes, email notifications are and have been enabled in my profile).
Email notifications for saved searches are still working, though.
Is there a way to export or save all the content and questions and answers one has asked in the past, perhaps to an html file?
Can I change my user ID?
(Hopefully this the correct area for this question...)

I often answer questions in the ColdFusion area.  Several times I've come across questions that were still unanswered weeks later, all because the author used the more common tag "ColdFusion",  instead of the official EE topic name ColdFusion Language.  Since most CF experts only monitor official topics,  they never saw those questions, and they went unanswered.

I realize the topic name is probably a carry over from the old site, but nowadays, most CF dev's and sites like StackOverflow, just refer to it as simply "ColdFusion" - or alternately "ColdFusion {Version Number}",  and sometimes as "CFML".    There are several open synonym requests since 2017, but none have been linked so far.  Ideally, experts in this area would be able to create version specific tags themselves ("ColdFusion 2018", "ColdFusion 2016", "ColdFusion 11", etc...).  However, failing that - the existing synonyms should at least be linked to the main CF topic to avoid more missed questions in the future.

Thank you
Greetings all,

I have created this question in support of the sessions beta and to provide an opportunity for experts to try out the feature. Please feel free to provide any feedback as part of your post-session summary.

I will be online and on the question tab to accept session invites as much as possible between the hours of 2:00PM - 5:00PM Pacific (GMT-8). I know this time-frame will not accommodate everyone so please send me a direct message if you would like to schedule a time to try sessions with me outside of the hours described above.

I just tried asking a new question on EE in Firefox, and the Submit button wouldn't work. I then tried the preview button, and that worked, but on the preview page the submit button wouldn't work there either. I tried Chrome, and that worked fine.

The Console in the dev tools show some messages that may help diagnose the issue.
why does use tracking cookies?
Why have you changed the points awarding mechanism? It makes it impossible to see what is going on. Often I want to award points to multiple contributors; it is either impossible or very vague.

What was wrong with the prior system?

Change just for the sake of change is NOT good.

I am a long time (probably 10 years or more) EE user, it is an extremely valuable resource.

Why make it harder to use?

I wonder if ANYONE has been on Experts Exchange as long as I have.  
My first question was on April 4, 1997. Over 20 yeas ago.  Can you believe it!

Here's a link to that first question:  "Unwanted mouse grouping"

I'm amazed that question is still in the EE System!   I've had 1,293 questions during that time!

so what it is make you different from an existing expert exchange system
