Internet Explorer 8.0: Font size too big

Ever since I switched from Explorer 7.0 to 8.0, both the fonts and images are uniformly bigger, making navigation more difficult.  The help screen on changing the font size provides this unhelpful instruction: "Open Internet Explorer. Click the Page button, click Text Size, and then click the size you want."  In spite of much searching, I do see a "Page button" anywhere.  Please advise.

So it is.  I didn't see it because the menu was to the far right of my screen, and all of those menus bled off of to the rightmost side of the page.  I also noticed that the zoom was up to 150%, which was really the cause of my difficulties.
Thanks,

While Internet Explorer is open, hit the Ctrl key and use the scroll button on your mouse to make the internet explorer page bigger or smaller.  You can alternatively use the Ctrl key and + or -.
