Text size

I have just got a new computer, using XP home OS however the text size in browser (IE 6) is tiny, I have tried setting text size to medium and larger and largest from 'Tools' but it makes no difference, I also went to 'Display' in control panel and tried changeing font size there but that doesent affect the browser. Can anyone suggest anything else I could try?

what screen resolution are you using and what is the sive of the monitor?

Hi AndySD

Screen resolution is 1024 X 768 and moniter is only 10.5 by 7.5 inches, though size was fine on old comp running win 98.

I have a 15" monitor and 1024 x 768 is small on that. I use 800 x 600. I suggest you try that setting or even 640 x 480 or get yourself a bigger monitor.

Thats sorted it, Bigger moniter is next on my list, but after buying new pc it will have to wait for a while till I can afford one! ;)
