How to increase the font size

in Internet Explorer, posted Oct 22nd 2011

This step-by-step guide explains the different ways to increase the text on any website in Internet Explorer.

Sometimes the screen resolution is too high, or the text on a page is too small to be able to be read comfortably, and this is when it's convenient to increase the text size in the browser.

To do so, there are multiple ways; the keyboard shortcut to do it is to press "Ctrl" and the "+" sign simultaneously; with the mouse, to scroll up with the mouse wheel while pressing the "Ctrl" key.

Finally, there is a menu option to change the zoom, which can be found in the "Tools" menu (which appears when pressing the button with the gear icon on it); there you can choose the desired zoom level.
