Default Increasing font size

Hi, I searched for this, but couldn't follow the directions given...

Is there a way to increase the size of the letters, font size, of the website(s) you are viewing? I'm squinting, getting all up close and personal with my moniter, etc.

thanks

Could try seting the text size large in View > Text Size ( assuming your using IE )

also hold the control key down and move your mouse wheel if you have a weeled mouse!

It was already set to largest, but I tried playing with it anyways, and it didn't seem to do anything... ??

Also, the wheel thing didn't seem to either. :[

This might be a good money maker for some programmer, to try and make either a magnifier, or a whole screen increaser/magnifier for people to use... Just make it and take donations from people who use it. $$$$$$

Dunno if this is on the other 9x OS's without doublechecking but check out on XP, Accessories > Accessability > magnifier

Ah, shit. I was messing with the accessability wizard, and I set it where the minimize, close, large/small window (uppermost right of screen) are now very small, and I can't get them back, and I don't even remember setting them to be small. Any help?

I did manage to get the text bigger, though. It's in the accessability wizard.

thanks.

I'm on XP.
