    2 users on HP computer - the text size on 1 user has gone small

    The text size has suddenly gone small, since yesterday, on one of the users' site, but the other is perfectly O.K.

    I have tried correcting it through the 'display', but this hasn't solved it. Any suggestions welcomed!

    Try CTRL + 0 (number 0, not letter O)

    AFAIK, pressing Ctrl and 0 (zero) resets the font size to default, in most browsers.

    Pressing Ctrl and + in most browsers, increases font size. Actually, you need to go with Ctrl Shift + to get the plus sign.

    Ctrl and - decreases the font size.

    The User with the smaller size font may have pressed the Ctrl key accidentally while scrolling with a mouse wheel. In most browsers, that action changes the font size to bigger or smaller.

    Solved it, by looking and actually seeing what is on my screen - that is, in the top right hand side of screen are 3 horizontal dots which when pressed showed that somehow the zoom had accidentally been changed to 75%, so was able to reset it to 100%! Sorry for being so stupid.
