Default small IE text

this happens many times but i don't know why. my parents use my computer sometimes to check email and stuff using internet explorer, while i use opera . all of a sudden i turn IE on and all the text is super tiny.

Default Re: small IE text

well sometimes it could be caused by the resolution change on the desktop, but for the browser part here's a little trick...click on the view tab at the top of the browser...go down to text size and put a check next to medium or larger....that should do the trick.

third way to do it if you have a mouse wheel, control + mouse wheel up = smaller text; control + mouse wheel down = bigger text.

you can get some pretty ridicolously big texts :-p
