Small print in web pages

  driving man 20:27 16 Nov 2007

I have noticed that many web pages are starting to use very small lettering.
OK, I know I am not as young as I was, but even with reading glasses I cannot see the script.

Any ideas please apart from windows accessories magnifier.
Am sure all screen settings are ok as many (most) pages are easily read

If I want to big the text up a bit I hold the Ctrl key down and scroll the mouse wheel backwards and forwards till I get the resolution I want.

Thanks for that but it doesnt appear to work.
Any other ideas please.

In IE, go to View > Text Size and choose Medium.

On the View menu select 'Text Size' and set to largest.

try tools/internet options/accessibility and tick ignor font sizes on web pages.
