For anyone more user-trained than myself. I seem to have changed the font/size of all text on my IE browser. I was not playing with any settings, and probably hit some key combination. Can anyone help me reset to default? Thanks in advance!

I'll take a shot at it:

Under 'View', there's a listing for 'Text Size'...
See if that gets ya back where ya belong.

In IE 7, the text size option is under "page"

That's about as techy as I get MadB you're on your own hunny...

See ya in Stormreach,

I appreciate the ideas. I have tried View>Text Size and Tools>Internet Options>Font. Neither has worked. My IE is all giant font and bloated.

But, it was definitely a 1 finger slip when copy/pasting (ctrl-c/v) that caused it. :(

K. Did figure you were past those, but started low. :o
Still playing around to see what I can come up with.

Not sure of IE but many browsers resize text if you hold control and use a scroll wheel.

(Still not sure why it changed to Comic Sans. But that I could manually change back to Arial.)

Check the Acceibility options in the start menu and make sure they are all as they should be.

Mad I found this similar problem and solution on accident. Does you mouse have a scroll wheel. Do you use ctrl+ whatever. If the answer to both those questions is yes. Hold CTRL and scroll your mouse wheel down. See if that does not move the screen "zoom" back

Yup ehonda, MasterofDungeons got me squared away. Thanks for the fast help everyone!

P.S. I always think of Punchout's 'Piston Honda' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piston_Honda#Piston_Honda) when I see ehonda post. Wouldn't that be a fun face to use as your avatar? :D

The answer to all your IE problems are quite simple. Get Firefox and another GB of RAM. Problem solved. ;)Corrected it for you. Firefox is bloatware.
