    Hello everyone - I am new to this forum. I have a problem with Internet Explorer. About a month ago the text size on Ebay and Google and various other pages - suddenly increased for no reason. This means that the page layouts often don't look right now and it is annoying because if I print something I get less on a page. How can I put the text size back to the normal size?

    I went into Firefox and the text size is still fine so it is definitely a problem/change with Internet explorer?

    (I have Windows XP)

    Thank you very much for any help :)

    Hi, welcome to TSG.

    In IE go to View > Text Size and set it to Medium.

    Maye you have increased the zoom setting in IE. Press Ctrl and move your mouse wheel down or check for the zoom level in the down right corner of IE window.

    Thank you very much - I changed the text size in the View menu - it was set to large - and that did the trick.
    Thank you!
