Fix your browser's font size so that it is always the same!


Adjust your browser so that the font size doesn't change from web site to web site.

Isn't it annoying to have a different font size on every web page you go to? Usually one page is too big, and the next is too small or you find the perfect font but it is only on the one page at the site You would think this issue would be resolved by now and a font size standard would be created That would be too easy for us, but don't worry because I have the solution for you

You can actually configure options in your browser to make it so that the font stays the same no matter where you go on the web.

Follow the steps below to adjust your browser's font size:

This is for Internet Explorer only

1 Open up you 'Internet Explorer' browser

2 Click on 'Tools', then select 'Internet Options'

3 Click the 'General' tab (it is usually selected by default)

4 Click the 'Accessibility' option (located near the bottom of the box)

5 Next, Check (click on) the 'Ignore font sizes specified on Web pages' box

Note: The wording may vary depending on which version of Internet Explorer you use

You now have your browser set so that the font size will remain the same from web page to web page.
