Changing the font size on IE8

My IE8 font size for some reason has gotten incredibly large.
How do I change the font size to something much smaller?
Thanks.

Hello bark1,

1.  Go to View in top menu > Text Size and select the next smaller text size.

2. Reset IE settings.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced.  Click on "Reset" button. Click OK. Close all browsers. Reboot the computer.

3. An addon may be interfering with IE, like Google Toolbar. Disable Addons.  Go to Tools > Add-on Manager, and uncheck the addons.

If you cannot open IE, start IE without addons.  Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No add-ons).

Hope this helps!

HI war1,

Did every thing you asked---still got the huge IE8 font size.

Any other suggestions?

Have you made sure that your zoom setting are set correctly. Under View, go to Zoom and check those settings.

bark1, glad the text size is fixed.  Isn't the accepted comment the same as the first step that I posted in my first post?

1.  Go to View in top menu > Text Size and select the next smaller text size.
