Windows 7: Internet Explorer V8

03 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1
 
 
Internet Explorer V8

Since my eyes have quite a few years on them, I need my browser to be at 125%. I have Googled as to how to make 125% the default, but nothing has worked. Does anyone have any hints as to how to make my IE 8 always comeup at 125%?
Thanks,

G'day bigmck,

I adjusted the zoom to 125% in the lower right corner of the browser, then exited, and then re-opened the browser (IE8) and it has remembered my zoom level I have just set.

Is yours resetting to 100%, when you re-open your browser?

Regards,
Golden

Yes, it resets to 100%. Even if I click to 125% and open a new tab it is 100%.

Mmm. OK. I just tried to replicate that but mine keeps the 125% zoom level:

Set to 125%, open a new tab : new window is set to 125%.

I'm guessing there must be some setting somewhere.....let me hunt around for it, and if I find it, I'll post back here.

Regards,
Golden

Here's my list of settings from which you (and other members with the same problem) can pick and choose multiple settings, to see what works best for any particular need:

1. Fonts - Change - This is the one of the main setting tools for setting various locations of Windows font sizes. Right-click on the Desktop and go to Personalize, Window Color and Appearance. Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, select the item that controls the location where you wish to change the font size. (Note: the last one, Window, does not have an option to control font size.)

2. DPI - How to Change the Display DPI Size in Windows 7
Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size – DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

3. Screen Resolution: Right-click on the Desktop, choose Screen Resolution, click on the down-arrow at the end of the Resolution box, and pick the desired resolution. Check OK.

4. Display: Right-click on the Desktop, select Personalize, then Display. From the 3 settings: Small, Medium, Large, if screen defaults to Medium (125% size for font and images) and that’s too large, use Small for 100% size (aka “normal”)

5. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there’s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page until/unless you change it.

6. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, UNcheck all three:
Reset text size to Medium for new windows and tabs, and
Reset text size to Medium while Zooming, and
Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs

7. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, General, Accessibility, Select Ignore font sizes specified on web pages. Click OK, then Apply, then OK.

8. Open Internet Explorer, click the Page button, click Text Size, and then select the size you want i.e. Large (Largest may be too large).

9. Ease of Access Center – Go to either: Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Ease of Access Center, Make Your Computer Easier to Use, Explore All Settings, and click on: Make this computer easier to see (Optimize Visual Display). OR go to Control Panel, and Explore all settings. Under the following heading, Make things on the screen larger, select: Change the size of text + icons. This takes you to the dpi settings screen.

10. If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, use command/ctrl + your scroll on a web page to increase the font size.

11. MS Word templates: In the Ribbon or QuickAccess Bar select Styles, Normal, and when the little arrow appears, select Modify. Under Formatting you can change the default font size (12) to whatever size you wish. At the bottom of the screen select Only in this documents OR New documents based on this template. Click OK. You can change this font size setting for any/all other MS Word templates as well.

12. In IE and FireFox (for current use – not permanent): press Ctrl and the + key to increase screen size. To reduce screen size press Ctrl and the – key. (To restore screen size to 100% press Ctrl and 0.)

13. FireFox (permanent setting): go to Tools, Options, Content, and on that screen set the new default text size that you wish. Then, click Advanced and there are additional default text size settings. Plus, in the box that says "Minimum text size" select None, and down below, UNcheck the box that says "allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of my selections above."

14. FireFox Add-On: NoSquint (http://urandom.ca/nosquint/)

15. Magnifier – To Magnify Entire Page: Start, Search pane, and type: magnifier. When it comes up click the plus (+) sign. The entire page will magnify. OR go to: Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Ease of Access Center, Make Your Computer Easier to Use, Start Magnifier.

16. Magnifier – To Magnify a Certain Portion of the Screen - go to Start, Search pane, and type: magnifier. Click the program at the top. The Magnifier can be set to Docked Mode which places a re-sizable window at the top of the screen that follows the cursor. (To read more about Magnifier go to Start, click "Help & Support" on the right hand side, type in "magnifier.") Magnifier is actually located at: Start, All Programs, Accessories, Ease of Access, Magnifier.
