Not sure what is going on. The past 3 or 4 days whenever I go onto any web
site the font is very large and makes the web page hard to read, not to
mention that what use to be on one page is now on 3 or 4 due to size.
This onyl happens when I go onto web pages. All other fonts have stayed
that same size. Does anyone know how to correct this?

In Internet Explorer, select the View/Text Size from the Toolbar. Click a
smaller size in the flyout menu.

You can change the font size by holding down CTRL and scrolling the mouse
scroll wheel. This may have happened without you realizing it.

If other suggestions fail, in IE, go to Tools>Internet options..>General
tab>Accessibility... button (lower-right). Uncheck any items that are
marked. OK, then Apply and OK to close.
