Hi,
For some reason today the font size on all the websites I go to has become smaller...
Why would this have happened, and how do I make the font size the normal (ot larger) size again?

Thanks!
Richard

What browser are you using?

To increase text size in FireFox, click on View --> Text Size --> Normal

In IE Again click on View --> Text Size --> Medium

And that's not counting all of us who didn't post, waiting to see if the problem wasn't solved by the first suggestions.

You know, that person over there - :trumpet: - and that one over there.

Hi,
Richard here, the original poster...

Yes, I should have said which solution solved the problem...
I have IE 7.
Well, the scroll wheel is a clever thing, but when I went to other websites, I had to keep adjusting the scroll wheel.
So the solution that worked was:

In IE: click on View --> Text Size --> Medium

So simple when you know how, eh? :thumbsup:

Thanks again guys!
Richard
