Shirley from AK asks:
I have noticed since using Windows 7 when I log into a site the print is so very small. I am using IE8 as my browser. Is there any way to increase the font size to make sites easier to see?
Internet Explorer 8 allows you to zoom to Web pages and increase the font size. There are two things you can do to solve your problem: change the fonts settings in Internet Explorer and manually zoom while you are surfing. The second option is the easier one.
Method 1- Change the Font Settings
Open Internet Explorer, click “Tools” and select “Internet Options.”
Under “Appearance,” click “Fonts.”
Select a large font that fits your preferences and click “OK.”
Method 2- Zooming
Open Internet Explorer.
Keep your hand on the “Control” (Ctrl) button and scroll up to zoom in, and scroll down to zoom out.
Keep your hand on the “Control” (Ctrl) button and press the plus (+) button to zoom in, and the minus (-) button to zoom out.
