tiny words/letters only in IE
« on: July 12, 2007, 12:27:54 PM »
All of a sudden last week while on my usual email page, all of a sudden on all internet pages, most(but not all) words a now very small and I cannot even read alot of them.  It's not in windows, only IE6 sp2.  Can anyone help me out?

Have you tried clearing your browser cache?

    Try this.

    Select 'View' and select 'Text Size'.

    The standard setting should be medium as far as i know.

    You're also running IE6...the latest is IE7.

    You may want to visit Windows Update for the latest high-priority updates.

    deerpark got it.  windows just poped up saying my virtual memory was low.  I'm wondering if it adjusted the ie setting on it's own.  Anyways it worked just changing the view/text size/medium

      Another suggestion would be if you press and hold the ctrl key while scrolling up or down with your mouse.  (Using the middle scroll thing.)  This will change the text size within the browser. 

      Do a ctrl & scroll up to make text smaller.
      Do a ctrl & scroll down to make text bigger.

      Since I see you fixed your problem this is just another way you could have tried.

        That's probably how the text size got messed up in the first place. :)

        This is a good point, Deerpark...

        Something else that's funny...the issue has been resolved (nice job BTW), but help is still being offered.

        Why not just leave well enough alone?

          Sorry, I didn't mean any harm with the advice I gave, I was just pointing out that this is another way to change the text size.  Next time I'll just leave well enough along.   :-X
