Internet Explorer Print Too Small

Dear Computer Lady,

I have Windows 7 and Internet Explorer.

For some reason the print size on web sites has gotten very small.

How do I get it back to normal?

Thank-you, Barbara

Dear Barbara,

There are a couple of ways you can change the size of the print in Internet Explorer.

If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, you can simply hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and turn the scroll wheel on your mouse up and down until your web page text is a good size for you to read.

You can also hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and then tap the + key or the – key on your keyboard to make the page larger or smaller.

A third method would be to click on the small “gear” icon in the upper-right corner of the Internet Explorer window, point to the “Zoom” menu and then click on a percentage, or click the “Zoom in” or “Zoom out” menu item.
