    (y) My computer is used by a few people. One day I found that the fonts in web mail and on websites is much smaller. No one claims to having made a settings change. I know that when one changes the resolution to a finer one, it makes things smaller, but it is usually everything, from the desktop icons to fonts, to graphics, etc. This change has not been made, and I am using the lowest resolution. Some of the people who use the computer need the larger fonts to see and read them, due to their failiing eye sight. Any ideas on what happened, and how to change it back? Thanks.

    Unfortunately the crystal ball must be fading, as we cant see what browser or email client you use. Very hard to give quality advice with no information supplied.

    On the off chance it is Outlook Express and Internet Explorer, then the fonts for both are controlled from IE.

    In IE, View - Text Size - make your selection.

    If you are running Windows, and using a wheel mouse, then holding down CTRL while scrolling the wheel may also enlarge or decrease the font size as well.

    You did not mention the browser you use. If it is Internet Explorer, click View. Click Text size and choose medium (or whatever choice you want).

    If you have a mouse with a wheel, it could be reset that way.
