Size of my text is too big. When I go to View, and then Text Size, no matter what size I select it stays largest. Any suggestions. Thanx.

Text in what? Prog? Desktop? Browser?
Maybe the question was too simple! :D

If you use a 3rd party email application, like Eudora, it can affect the text size settings in IE. If so, turn off "Use Microsoft Viewer" in Eudora.

Can you explain "zooming down"? Thanks
You just hold down the Ctrl + move the scroll wheel on your mouse foward to make smaller and backward to make larger.

Mrphil,

Using the Ctrl key and mouse wheel combination is the same as going to View > Text Size.

Many pages are created using codes which specify what font size the creator wants you to see. To bypass these settings go to Tools > Internet Options > Accessibility and check the Ignore font sizes specified on web pages box.

You will then be able to either use the Ctrl and mouse wheel combination or View > Text Size.
