Try this. Right click anywhere on the desktop, select 'Properties/Appearance/ Under font size select a larger font.

This will make your fonts generally bigger, not just in IE

For Internet Explorer highlight "view", then "text size" then select the size you want.

simple tip that will help you along;

Hold CTRL and use the scroll wheel on your mouse to enlarge or reduce the text size.

Fourth tab of Display Properties (from the Control Panel or a right-click on the desktop); last drop-down box. It affects title bars and menus, etc.

Download Firefox.

This is an excellent browser that I have been using for over a year.

click here

Once installed use the nosquint add-on.

click here

This will allow you to set the zoom level you require.

Internet Explorer is not removed from your computer. You may switch back any time you wish.
