Hi Glenda,

That is the gist of it. But make sure that  zoom level is set to to
100% and window size to 1280 pixels by 768 pixels. If the viewport is
not at 1280 pixels wide due to scroll bars, increase the window until
it is 1280 pixels.

The step-by-step procedure using stylish is at:

Kindest Regards,
Laura
