Text Constantly Changes Size in IE8 when Windows Change
In early January, I upgraded my laptop software from Vista SP2 32 bit to
Windows 7, 64 bit. When I did this, my IE went from IE7 to IE8. Ever since
that upgrade, I have had problems with text size changing. I know how to set
text size. I've tried it various ways. I typically and would like to have
text size set to medium with zoom set at 125% or 150%. Yet, when I change
windows or reboot, the zoom very often resets back to 100%.

At first I thought this was a Windows 7 problem. However, last week, I
accidentally upgraded IE7 to IE8. on my desktop. That desktop is still
running Vista SP2, with all the latest upgrades. Since that upgrade to IE8,
I have had the same problems with text sizes inadvertantly changing on their
own on my desktop as well as my laptop.

I did not have this problem with IE7 or IE6 or prior versions. I know I am
not accidentally scrolling to change the text (or zoom) size. I have been a
long time Windows/DOS user, and while I'm not an expert, it seems to me that
something is wrong with IE8.

This is becoming more and more of an annoying problem and would appreciate
any support/suggestions on how to fix it.

Thank you,

Richard

You change text size via View | Text Size, not via Zoom settings.

Hi Richard,

Tools>Internet Options - General tab, Accessibility button, check "Ignore
font sizes specified on web pages".

Advanced tab, uncheck "Reset zoom level for new windows and tabs"

or

you can add a user Stylesheet that will over-ride all web page settings.

Regards.
