    I am having problems with the font size changing when I open documents and websites. I physically have to go to the toolbox and click on the Zoom feature to enlarge the font. It will show the font as being 100% but actually it looks to be about 50%.

    What can I do to assure the font remains at the default setting?

    Sorry, but the zoom does NOT change the Font size, it just zooms in and makes the display larger.

    The font size is controlled by the use of the settings in the Menu and/or Ribbon Bar.

    I understand about the zoom, but I don't understand why the font is changing sizes all by itself. I am NOT changing them. I have to enlarge them in the "zoom" mode because the computer has made them so small.

    In what program is this happening?

    Also it could be you display resolution?

    Burt, press Ctrl 0 to reset your font to 100% (that's a numeric zero by the way)
    You can also do a Ctrl + to increase font size, or Ctrl - to decrease font size.
