i dont' remember exactly what preceded the change (i seem to remember a
windows update), but now all of the fonts on any webpage (including this one
and my received emails) are font size 14 or bigger (im not sure) instead of
the usual 10. it's really annoying. i've checked for viruses and such but
nothing is found. i sure hope someone can help!!!

thanks!

Go here (a good site to bookmark)
http://search.microsoft.com/search/search.aspx?st=b&Vie...

Enter
font size
default font size
explorer font size

Or any other search term you think will help, then read the
articles to see if you find a fix

Open Internet Explorer, then View / Text Size and adjust from there,
or, if you have a wheel mouse, hold down the <ctrl> key and roll the
wheel to adjust size.

Open IE.
On the View menu, point to Text Size, and then click the size you want.

that sounded perfect. when i click on view - text size - it's set to largest.
i can click on any of the other sizes, but it doesn't reset the text size,
and the next time i check it's back on largest! thanks for the quick
response! any other ideas?

Your not in Safe Mode are you or a lower screen resolution than you were
before are you? In IE go to View, Text Size, pick a size.

I wonder if your default DPI setting has been changed to "Large size".

Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced (button) > General (tab).

Change to "Normal size".

size in view on internet explorer. i had only tried internet options before.

Hey, I've had this "large font" problem for about a month or so, and I
couldn't figure out how to get the fonts back to normal size again (small
fonts).
Now that I finally cam to this help forum, I found out where I could go to
change my IE fonts back to normal again. Thanks!
