I just clicked onto the forums, and noticed that I have more threads on the page and the font is smaller. Is this me or have changes been made? I attempted to change the text size under "view" on my toolbar with no success. The font is too small for me!! Thanks

Try a Ctrl-+ (hold down the control key and press the 'plus' key); that should make the web page in Internet Explorer larger, and it should make the fonts larger as well.

A Ctrl-- (hold down the control key and press the 'minus' key); that should make the web page in Internet Explorer smaller, and it should make the fonts smaller as well.

This also works in FireFox.

For real amusement, type a succession of Control-Minus's and watch the web page shrink to nothing!

If you are running Firefox, there is a little addon that makes everything bigger on all pages, depending on how you set it up. Of course, if you go to a page where the type is very small, it's not going to be as big as it is in other pages. But if it's just an occasional page, I use the Ctrl-Mouse scroll button thing.
