    How to solve the small font problem in Internet Explorer

    Use this trick to change font sizes on webpages in real time.
    Works on firebird and other webbrowsers too.

    - Go to any webpage

    - Click on the page (not on a link in the page)

    - Hold CTRL and roll up and down your mousewheel


    Hint: This trick works here too!!!



    have fun! =)

    I knew about that ever since i started using Firebird from Mozilla. Mozilla Firebird lets you get the font till a single letter fills up your screen hehe. So i guess Firebird is the winner of enlarging fonts on sites. ^^

    There's really a way to remove IE from your computer? I thought it's like integrated into XP though. =/

    I think he said he just got rid of the shortcuts. I deleted them all too so it's just in the IE folder (in Program Files), unfortunatly I havn't taken the time to re-do the associations with some programs so when I open up links in some apps it brings up IE
    As far as I know there isn't a way to get completly rid of it, and if there is it's with some serious work (like those Windows 98 Lite and XP Lite OSs might not have them - thats a lot of work).

    On the original post; I am right with Sophisticated. The thing is, the feature annoys me more than it does anything, because with FireFox I get the font I want all the time and I accidentally change it

    Internet explorer is part of the windows shell.


    You can NEVER delete internet explorer without deleteing windows explorer (which has the start button, desktop shortcuts, etc).


    With that said, you can get rid of windows explorer, and then IE would go with it.

    You would simply replace it with one of the many premade shells out there that are way more efficient than windows explorer, but your desktop icons etc would work differently as it is a different shell.
