Default big letters

Hi all the letters have enlarged on my computer, I don't know why this has happened. Could someone tell me how to get them back to normal.
Many thanks.

is it in general or just on web pages?
if just on web hold down ctrl and use the scroll wheel till its good.
if it is in general check the font size in your display properties
(right click on your desktop and go properties, go to the appearance tab and change your font size to normal.

Gav223, you need to follow the directions exactly as ADZ gave you in his posting. You will see the drop down menu box for Font Size.
