    Inside the web page area, IE obeys one of the following:

    The code in the page
    Your setting under View > Text Size
    Default settings, if you went into Tools>Internet Options>Accessibility and tweaked it there.

    Menus, toolbars, etc., are governed largely by Windows settings.

    Hey--

    It sounds like you changed the accessibility setting Jefferson references Tools>Options>button on the lower right>check in box "ignore font sizes on specified web pages" and then after you or someone getting a check in that box. It would have had to get there some way for this to occur; then a soft touch on the mouse scroll could do it, especially if you hit Ctrl. Could a friend have possibly been having fun with you and changed and pupt the check there while you werren't arround? What's in that check box now? This would probably be the on point question.

    And it would help us help you if after you post these problems and we post fixes, you let us know if any of the solutions help you on the thread.
