My internet page/font size has shrunk

  bear73 19:06 09 Aug 2006


Bit of a weird one here. Turned on pc today and everything was fine. My husband was playing a game on the pc with my daughter and the game crashed. After that happened we noticed that whenever we use the internet (via AOL or internet explorer) all the pages that come up the text is absolutely tiny. It happens on all pages, Ebay etc and bbc weather reports are so tiny are can't read the temps or wording at all.

Any ideas?

Go to View - Text Size - and make it larger.

Or hold down CTRL and rotate the wheel on your mouse.

Thanks, went in IE and it worked. No idea why that happened.

To add to DieSse's posting, Internet Explorer also affects Outlook Express's text sizes.

If the problem arises in OE, the most common used is Medium text.

Setting a larger text size will/may cause printing of e-mails to be in a much larger text size.
