    Default IE 10 or google problem?

    3 days ago I went to gmail and all the text was very large - I went to zoom and changed it back to 75%. I then opened an email and the test was so small I could not read it - I changed zoom back to 100%. When I open another email it is back to very small and I have to change it. When the email text is correct the google text is huge - when the google text is the correct the email text is very small.

    What caused this text size problem to change when I have not changed anything in gmail since I started with it many, many years ago and how do I solve the problem and get things back to "normal"? - tks - jb

    I use an email client in Win 8.1 called Thunderbird it is free and very similar to common older email clients like Outlook Express and Outlook

    You can adjust the viewing size in Thunderbird and it will work with Pop and Imap servers as well
    (Internet message access protocol (IMAP) is a protocol for e-mail retrieval...like Gmail accounts )

    It is user friendly IMHO

    Abseh - tks for the reply, I replied to you but for some reason it does not seem to have made it to the board. I have used gmail for many years and don't want to change - this is just strange actions that I have not been able to solve. - jb

    Hi Jeb,

    Did you ever get your Font situation corrected for Gmail? Which browser are you using to access your Gmail acct.?

    If Google Chrome, the following link might help:


    GMail Text Size | Reading On Screen
    If you think you might be infected with malware or have recently cleansed your computer of malware without the help of an expert, please read and follow the instructions in How to Start Removing Viruses and Spyware from your Computer. This can alleviate time consumed in trouble shooting your current computer problems.

    If your problem is solved, here's how to say thanks!
