Learn how to increase or decrease the font size and size of the page in Internet Explorer.

If you can’t read some tiny text on a website, or you mistakenly changed the browser font size, adjusting the font size is very helpful.

The easiest way to increase the font size is to hold "Ctrl" then press the "+" or "-" key. Logically, the "+" key increases the font size, while the "-" key decreases it.

An alternative way to adjust the font size is to hold "Ctrl" and scroll the mouse wheel up or down to adjust the font size.

There's also a menu option to set the zoom level; go to the "Tools" menu (the one with the gear icon on it), and then check the options under the "Zoom" submenu.
