How do you make your font smaller?

Yesterday at work I don't know what I did but now my font is HUGE! And I don't like it that way. I tried the desktop properties and found no option to change the font. I tried holding down the buttons on the mouse while rolling the mouse scroller and that didn't work either. PLEASE....if anyone knows how to fix it I would be very grateful, grateful enough to give you 10 points!!! Thanks!

:)

Update:

Thanks. I feel like such a blonde sometimes (recently went dark aubrun, but am naturally blonde). The View thing worked.....You Saved My Life!! Not really but, hey, It looks so much better now!!!!!

    Make Font Smaller

    If you are using the internet and you want the website's font bigger, go to view and then click text size. But, with what you are talking about, it seems as though the font of everything on your computer is tiny. Here is what you do: Go to Control panel, then when it opens, click apperence on the top tabs. On my computer, it is the 4th tab from the left. Then, at the bottom, there will be a drop down arrow under font size with three different settings to choose from. You should maybe try the biggest first and adjust from there. I hope my advice helped you, and sorry it's so long. I know how it feels to not have an answer that helps!

    If you are running Windows XP, hold down the control key(marked Ctrl) and roll the little wheel that is between the two buttons on the mouse back and forth. It will make the fonts on the screen larger or smaller. Otherwise, go to: start/settings/control panel/display/settings/advanced then change the DPI setting there per the instructions shown.

    If you are referring to the font in a web browser then you can change it by simply holding ctrl and scrolling the mouse wheel. Hope that helps!

    try holding down the control button and scrolling on the scrolling thing in between the two clickie things on the mouse (sorry, I don't know the correct terms for these things) Hopefully you can figure out what the scrolly thing is lol. Sometimes I accidentally enlarge or reduce text size without meaning to because I do that.
