By default, the font size in Internet Explorer is set to "medium text size", but can be easily changed in just a few clicks, as you'll learn in this tutorial. In most cases, web designers will do a good job at selecting a font family and text size that matches the needs of users and the requirements based on display size and screen resolution. If this is not the case, Internet Explorer offers you a couple of solutions: starting with Internet Explorer 8, you can not only decrease or decrease the font size of some or all of the text on a web page, but you can also zoom in or zoom out the entire web page - although this approach will help when the entire page looks too small on screen, changing the text size itself is the preferred solution when what you are trying to read is too small - or looks too tiny, based on your current screen settings.
