Windows 7: Suddenly giant browsing IE8

Suddenly giant browsing IE8

My browser has been getting larger and larger.
Now it is almost unusable it is so large.

The text is half an inch tall.
The icons and graphics are huge!

Everything on my desktop is still normal.
(I keep my text, etc. rather small)

I am typing short lines in this message
because my browser area is WAY
larger than my screen.
It takes 3 scrolls to see the right edge.
