Zooming and Text size in Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office

You may at times need to zoom in on a web page or on an office document. You can quickly change the font size appearance by doing the following:

While holding down the control (Ctrl) key use your scroll wheel on your mouse to zoom in or out. (If there is a keyboard key you can use instead of a scroll wheel I am not aware of it)

Remember that the changes you make using the ctrl-scroll wheel remain in effect till you change them back. If you are seeing tiny text or very large text on all your browser web pages or Office documents then this setting has probably gotten changed somehow and you can adjust it back using the above method.
