    There seem to be a few people having trouble with different size fonts on these new pages...mine were coming up rather tiny...this was posted on the site some time ago...can't find it again...maybe too long ago...anyway...

    If you hold down the Ctrl key while scrolling either up or down-it will increase or decrease the size of the fonts on the page...

    This works in my Word programme as well as on the web...

    Thanks for reminding me! Mine are small, then large, then back to small. This will help.

    This only works for me if I scroll with the middle mouse button.

    It works while I stay in TSG, but when I use another window the fonts are too big *sigh* I'm sure it's a bug since it just started doing that today.

    I don't know if you tried this yet but on my xp pro machine I right clicked on a blank area of the toolbar and selected customize.On the resulting box there are a bunch of things you can add to the toolbar,and one of them looks like 2 A's overlaped.This will resize everything on the screen quickly ,and just as quickly,change it back
    The exact same result you get from the "Ctrl" thing,only easier
