Web Page text size

I recently followed instructions in PC Advisor to "tweak" my computer to alter text size with the "roller" on my mouse.
How do I reverse this tweak please?

Hold down CTRL and rotate the wheel.

I didn't explain my self very clearly.
What I want to do is reverse the situation. i.e. I do not want to be able to alter the text size because on a lot of sites it causes texts to overlap.

Has no one got any other suggestions?

If you mean that you want to reduce the text size (as opposed to increase text size) in your browser, hold down CTRL and hit the - (minus) key (to the right of 0 [zero]).

If you neither want to reduce nor increase text size, do not hold down CTRL while either rotating the mouse wheel or hitting the + or - keys.

If you are using Internet Explorer, from View>Text size, select Medium and OK.
