Internet Explorer 8 Fonts

Hi Everyone!

I am kindly ask you to help me, resolve problem with fonts. Recently, I had started IE8 and discovered that fonts in IE8 became smaller than usual. So, when I tried to open web-site I saw that fonts was changed. I tried the following in order to restore prevoius fonts on Windows 7.

1. Change Text Size (did not help, fonts become higgher or smaller depends what I was choosing.
2. Unistall IE8 throw features
3. Restore default font settings.

Unfortunately, it didn't help me and then I tried to install FireFox latest and the problem was solved. But I cannot restore default fonts in IE8

Thank you for your help!

You may have inadvertently pressed ctrl while scrolling your mouse wheel, that changes the font size or zoom level on the fly. (I /think/ it's ctrl+shcroll wheel, may be alt if not) So try that to get your fonts back to normal.

Bottom right, just above the clock. Zoom size. Click on it>custom and set it to the size that you prefer.

Mine is set tp 140% and text size is smaller. Of course our vision and needs are different; but its perfect for me and it does not change.

One more thing, if the feature t`hat I mentioned does not show. It is on the status bar. To view it right click on the command bar (file, edit view, etc) and then tick status bar.
