Has your font size mysteriously changed in Internet Explorer?  You may have accidently stumbled on a little known feature which can be quite handy but also quite annoying if you don't know how to change it back...

If you have a wheel mouse and are using Internet Explorer you can use the wheel to very quickly alter the size of the text on most Web sites.  This is very handy to make the page fit your screen better or also "zoom in" on smaller text so that you can read it for those a little older

To adjust the text size, just hold down the [CTRL] key as you roll the button up and down. As you do the text will either increase or decrease depending on which way your move the wheel.  Simply reverse the process to return your screen to the way it was.
