    (I'm not even sure this is the right forum to post this, as I'm not actually certain about where the problem lies)

    My son woke up early and got online to play video games. I checked History and found that he just went to one site; nothing unusual.

    Anyway, when I got on the PC, I noticed that the text is smaller than usual, both on websites and on the titles of my saved files/folders. It's annoyingly small.

    The actual text in my Word files, however, is normal-sized.

    How can I get my text to be of regular size again?

    Thank you in advance. :)

    sometimes you can hold ctrl and use the scroll wheel on your mouse to increas/decrease the text size. you can also go into your options and set all settings to default.

    Thanks, guys! The toolbar approach worked like a dream. Even if I do feel a tad embarrassed for not knowing that beforehand. :eek:
