    It was a little difficult to summarise this small problem in the thread heading.
    Basically, I've noticed that I sometimes get internet pages with fonts so small I can't read them, but if I call up the same page later or on a different computer at work, the size seems larger. I'm using W95. Are there any page view settings I can adjust. I can't find anything obvious.

    Hi.

    Did you check View > Text size in Internet Explorer?

    Thanks. I've changed that and will see if all pages are now consistently larger. It was the variability of text-size when revisiting the same page that was as puzzling as anything.

    If you're using a scroll mouse, simultaneously holding down the Ctrl key and scrolling the wheel will also change font size on web pages, so that may be what happened.
