Internet pages too large
Why are my internet pages so large?
This just started .
Is there a way to change it back?
What might have happened is that while in the programs window of internet options I clicked on the HTML editor to see what other options were there and windows notepad is the only option I saw but I think something else was there before. Could this be the problem?

Ex.5.5 is the browser.

No fair laughing..............

how do you mean
- the pages exceed your screen so you get horizontal/vertical slide bars?
- the proportion is increased ?

hi jbcalg,
well you didn't give us much to go on... but Im guessing your display properties have been changed.
Right click on an empty spot on your desktop & see what your settings are for your display...
800 x 600 or what?

Definitely need more info
Yep, more info please.

Is it possible that you mean your FONTS are bigger now, making the page seem bigger? You can click on View, Text Size to check your setting. Medium is usually a safe net.

Thanks all,

Turns out text size adjustment was all that was needed.
