Running Windows 7 with IE 11. On this site all the fonts are very small making it hard to read. Yes I can zoom to make it readable but that makes all the other sites too large. I'm logged in and tried using sidebar config but no joy. Help would be appreciated.
Use a different browser.
Switch to firefox.
I use CTRL+ when I need things bigger and CTRL- when I need things smaller.
Try a shutdown and restart.
Not using Internet Exploder would be a good start. Plenty of other good alternate browsers out there; Firefox seems to top the list for most.
What, nobody’s told you to buy a Mac yet?
first of all, are you logged in?
Not sure about IE 11, but with previous versions, you could select ‘view’ in the tool bar and select page and text resizing.
FreeRepublic.com character set is Latin 1 aka Western Latin 1 aka Windows Latin 1 aka Western (Windows Latin 1).
The Microsoft kb928847 webpage says ...
To resolve this issue, use one of the following methods [I've listed only 2 of their suggestions]:
Disable the Auto-Select setting in Internet Explorer.
Provide the character set in the HTTP headers.
Thanks! works for me!
View and reset Zoom
Hit CTRL + and it will increase the window size
Normally I have browser Menu Bar selected off. Selecting View, Text Size to Larger worked. Reset Zoom Level to 100% and all is good. Thank you!
(hold control while hitting the other key)
reset back to default size: ctrl0
that last one is ctrl and the number zero, 0.
works in firefox, can’t speak for how well it will work in others.
I switched from IE to Chrome, on my son’s advice, and I couldn’t be any more pleased.
One word: Firefox
Hold control down and run the center scroll wheel back or forth on your mouse.
I assume java in your name is not because you program java.
I say buy a computer just to view this site and adjust the settings to your likings.
I like using my iPad to read because it zooms so easily but I rarely post from it.
I don’t use IE but normally, in the options or preferences of browsers, there’s a tab for adjusting/selecting fonts and how they’re displayed. You may even choose the option to have the web site display its fonts as intended or you may override that choice and choose your own font and size of display. If that doesn’t work, check the Personalization and choose Ease of Access Center. There’s a Magnification option that might help.
