web pages tiny

I updated my monitor to a 22" Samsung and web pages are very tiny (about
1/q and print is light. I have another computer using XP with a 22" and
everything is fine. Any suggestions?

When looking at a web page, hold down the CTRL key and rotate the mouse
wheel. One direction will make it bigger, the other smaller.

This is a Windows standard, and works in most applications.

No, don't change the resolution. Make sure the resolution is set to the
native resolution of your screen, which it probably already will be.

If just webpages are too small, you can zoom them by holding down Ctrl and
rolling the mouse wheel. The same is true of the icons on the deskop and
the contents of many applications.

If you want to make everything look bigger, do the following:

Control Panel | Ease of Access | Ease of Access Center

Make the computer easier to see | Change the size of text and icons

Select Larger scale (120 DPI)

That'll sort you out.

Hi,

From IE, click View/Text Size, choose something larger than the current
selection.
