With Windows XP there was that handy little tool in the lower right of the screen that allowed you to enlarge or reduce the size of the picture currently on your screen. Don't have this with Win 7. Or is it hidden somewhere.
Gary when you're online, hold the control key down while keying the + or - (plus or minus) sign to enlarge or shrink the view.
I might add that the function works on all the browsers I've used it on, not just IE.
This also works to enlarge/reduce the size of text.
