How to Change Text Size Used for Webpages in Internet Explorer

information   Information
This will show you how to change the text size displayed on webpages in Internet Explorer to what you would like to make them easier to read.

If you change the text size, the graphics, buttons, and text boxes will remain their original size. Only the text size will change.

Resetting Internet Explorer will also reset any text size changes you made below back to default as well.



Here's How:
1. Open Internet Explorer.
NOTE: In Windows 8, this would only apply to the IE10 desktop version, and not the IE10 Metro (Windows UI) version.

2. To Select a Font Text Size in Internet Explorer
NOTE: These settings will not affect webpages that are designed to prevent changes to text size. If you want to use your selected text size on all webpages, regardless of whether they've been specified by the website designer, you can use step 3 below to override website text size settings.
A) On the Command Bar, click on Page, Text Size, and the select (dot) the size you want. (see screenshot below)
NOTE: The default text size is Medium.

B) Check the Reset text size to medium while zooming box, and click on OK. (see screenshot below step 4A)
