Windows 7: IE Font Sizing on High Res Notebook

IE Font Sizing on High Res Notebook

I just switched to a notebook with higher resolution screen. The fonts are too small in IE on most web sites including Outlook Web Access. In Internet Explorer, is their a way to lock in the "sizing" set with Ctrl-Scroll ? so its a permanent setting, or permanent initial setting ?

Setting the whole system to 125% fonts is not the answer because it makes the fonts in other applications and Windows Explorer way to big when they are displayed on my attached-extended desktop 1280 x 1024 display.

Setting IE "Test Size" to "Larger" only works on a few web pages . . most ignore this setting.

It would be nice if their was a registry setting to lock in the initial Ctrl-Scroll setting whenever IE is started.
