help - my font's got bigger!

  mco 12:52 02 Nov 2003

yesterday for no reason I can work out (certainly nothing I did deliberately) the font on some of my 'favourites' eg, google, yahoo and another discussion forum, has suddenly got BIGGER - it's a nuisance because I can obviously get fewer details to a page. Have I done something I didn't mean to? Is it them? How do I get it back to what it was?

(assuming you are using IE6) Click View, Text size and see if that has changed from medium

yes! I did as you said - it was on 'largest' so i clicked back to medium and all's fine but I'm confused as - I've never looked at view - text size before (not being knowledgeable) so I still can't figure out how it changed all by itself??

Try Alter V X Enter. Something surprisingly easy to do when you are trying to cut and paste, but press the Alter key instead of the Control Key.

Do upo have a wheel mouse? Holding down CTRL and rotating the wheel changes the font size in IE.

thanks - I reckon last night I did one or both those things in the answers above, intending to do something else instead. Now I know.
