Bottom right corner of your screen you will see possibly set at 100% click the little arrow at select yoir zoom size.

Or use your mouse scroll wheel and ctrl to enlarge the text.

Or, as skidzy says - hold down Ctrl and move your mouse wheel.

Problem using zoom is it enlarges everything,images included,try increasing to 125%.

Or if you just want to be able to read the text easier by making it bigger you could use the Page Magnifier in click here

skidzy has mentioned the proper means to alter IE text size - with Firefox it's Ctrl and + or - to increase or decrease as required.
