I mostly browse with FF, however, I occasionally visit sites with IE. Every site viewed with FF "fits" the monitor perfectly, however, if I use IE some sites are much larger (complete with left to right scroll bar!). Yahoo is the perfect example. I've enabled and disabled the settings in Accessibility to no avail. How can I resize these web pages without changing resolution or dpi? Thank You!

IE will remember the size of the last window it was opened in.

Use your cursor to drag the top, bottom and sides of the IE window to the edges of the screen, (if that's the size you want). Make sure the window you use is the only copy of Internet Explorer open. It should open that size from then on.

It isn't the text size. It was set at smaller and changing it to smallest only changes the font size. Thank You anyway!

Well you can try to change the DPI setting.
Right Click Desktop>Properties>Settings>Advanced>General Tab>Change to Normal (96DPI)

Then close IE with the X.

Did you do as above?

That method also removed text. Per another site, there isn't anything can be done about it, it's an IE thing. They suggested using PrintPunk (free for 30 days) and it was the only way to resize without changing the page content. I went on a two hour freeware search and tried several apps, however, nothing worked as conveniently as PP! Thank You for you help and should anyone find a similar program to PP post it.
