Control Internet Explorer and Windows Help Font Size


To set Internet Explorer’s font size (and Windows Help), cut and paste the
following code into iefontsize.reg file and run it to
hack the registry.

For Internet Explorer 5+

REGEDIT4
BLANK
LINE GOES HERE

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\International\Scripts\3]
“IEFontSize”=hex:02,00,00,00

BLANK LINE GOES HERE

For Internet Explorer 4

REGEDIT4
BLANK
LINE GOES HERE

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\International\1252]
“IEFontSize”=hex:02,00,00,00

BLANK LINE GOES HERE

See .REG files for background information on
.REG files.


The legal values for IEFontSize are 01,02,03, and 04 with 1 being the
smallest, 4 the largest and 2 being the default medium font. Experiment. Get a
font size you like. Keep the version of iefontsize.reg
that works best for your vision. Since Windows tends to lose these settings, use
the .reg file to keep the font size to what you like best.
