Why is my font so small on everything all of the sudden?
What did I do and how do I get back to normal sized font?

I don't know how, but when I log onto the homepage of a website, the font is tiny. I think this happened once before a long, long time ago, but I can't recall how to fix it!

Help! Thanks in advance.

1. I only know how to fix it in Safari.
You go to View, then click Make Text Bigger. I don't know what to do if you have Internet Exploder.

7. I don't have "view" on my AOL browser.
I checked "settings" and "text and font", but that was only for IM's, email, etc.

Dang it. I know it's something fairly easy. It's maddening!

8. Uh oh, Sorry, Dear. I'm not sure where it is on an AOL browser.

10. Here's a page with help on Internet Explorer (AOL pre 7.0)
and others.

Internet Explorer (AOL pre 7.0)
Go to "Tools"
Select "Internet Options "
Click "Accessibility"
Click to "Ignore font sizes specified on Web pages "
Proceed with the following steps for Changing System Default Font based on your operating system:

6. If you're not on a Mac,
"Control" plus "+" works for me.

9. It's from scrolling too fast
Edited on Wed May-10-06 11:34 PM by Capn Sunshine
hold down the "Ctrl" key and slowly scroll -I'm assuming you have a scrolling wheel in your mouse-- -like one bump at a time back and forth- until you get it back the way you like it
