    First i would like to say thanks fore al the help i hav goten from this wonderful site.

    i have a smal problem.
    i usuly use my TV as a computer screen, i just enlardge my icons and other stuff that i usuly use.
    And if therese somthing more importent i just switch to my regular monitor.
    well my problem is this, i would like to know if its possible to make explorer bigger, i usuly use: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\International\Scripts\3\IEFontSize

    and change it up to the biggest setting witch i think is 04 00 00 00 ore somthing..
    but the problem is, this just makes the text bigger (usuly, some web pages seem to stay the same eny way thught?..) i would like the hole explorer to be come bigger.
    I would be very very happy if some one could help me whit this.
    Thanks alot

    Here's what I do to help readability of text:

    From within IE:

    Tools>Internet Options>Accessibility

    Place a check in the box next to "Ignore font sizes specified on web pages" and click "OK" until you're back in IE.

    Now select View>Text Size and play with those settings until text is clear enough.

    Most web sites (ahem) get way too fancy with their text design. This tweak is the Great Equalizer.

    Hope this helps! :)
