    Default Help, I Broke My Ie!

    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.

    K. Did figure you were past those, but started low.
    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.)

    As for the font, what more appropriate for the forums of late?

    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

    P.S. I always think of Punchout's 'Piston Honda' when I see ehonda post. Wouldn't that be a fun face to use as your avatar?

    The answer to all your IE problems are quite simple. Get Firefox. Problem solved.

    That fixed all my problems ages ago. I fully support this suggestion.
