Hi Everyone,

I use IE6 for a web browser and something seems to be affecting the font size. I mean there are several sites, including yahoo mail, that I go to where my font size seems to have grown about four times larger than it use to be here in the past week.

Is there some way to reduce the size of the fonts that I'm reading in IE?

Thanks for any information.

Wendy

Hi wendy k.walker!

If you have a wheel mouse, you can change the font on any page in IE by simply holding down the Ctrl key and moving the scroll wheel up or down.

You can also change the font size inside Internet Explorer by clicking the View menu, Text Size.

If this doesn't help, please post back.

Hi LindaGail, Thanks for the reply.

*doing little happy dance on the couch with my dog* I knew there was something up on the tool bar that I could use to reset the font but I was having a blond moment and never looked any place other than in tools.

Yep, I have a wheel mouse too, and I have a feeling that I now know how my font might have gotten enlarged in the first place. I will have to be a lot more careful when using the Ctrl button and my mouse from now on.

I have things back to normal and will give it a go in my email later.

Thanks again.

Wendy
