Try holding down the CTRL key and scrolling with the wheel. This is a shortcut to the Zoom function, found in all major browsers.

Hi evergreen,

Try this. Click Tools and Internet Options. On the General tab, under Appearance, click Accessibility. In the Formatting section, click to check (place a tick) the option Ignore font sizes specified on webpages and then click OK twice.
