Windows 7: All browsers not displaying the correct font size

05 Aug 2017   #1

Windows 7 Home Basic 64 bit
All browsers not displaying the correct font size

Hi Friends,

I have two Lenovo laptops. Both have an AMD (E2-1800 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 1.70 GHz) processor, a 500 GB HDD, 4 GB DDR3 RAM and 15.6" LCD monitors.

One laptop is running Windows 7 Home Basic 32 bit edition and another is running Windows 8.1 Single Language 64 bit edition.

After re-installing the respective OS on each of these 2 laptops, I am facing a weird issue when using both these laptops. The issue is - all of my web browsers IE11, Firefox and Google Chrome seem to display sites in a font size that is much bigger than the regular one. It does no matter which site I visit. Even the most regular ones are being displayed in large fonts and scrolling has become a necessity. YouTube looks totally weird in all these 3 browsers. Apart from web browsers, rest of the system seems on both the laptops seems to behave the way I want in terms of font size, icon size, resolution, colors etc. As of now, I am being troubled by these 3 browsers only .

Both the laptops are running Windows OS as mentioned above, but I have fully updated Windows on both of them. Service packs seem to have been installed as well. I have installed the latest drivers, installed and updated a paid Internet security software. All the web browsers are also updated to their latest versions.

I did try > Control Panel > Ease of Access Center, but the problem is very much there.


Can you please help me? Thanks a lot.

Most web browsers have an adjustable font size. In IE11 click on the Gearwheel icon up on the top RH corner & select Zoom from the menu, this will open a selection of sizes & you can try them to see which suits you best.

I am not sure with your other browsers, but have a look in settings as I am sure there will be a setting for font sizes.

Hi Everyone, Under the Firefox menu, the settings for fonts are,

Click on options

Content Panel on the left

Fonts and colors - on the drop down menu you can pick the size. I have left mine on the default 16

and fonts are normal sizes.
