IE won't hold the Text Size settings

IE won't hold the Text Size settings

Post by Jay Steven » Tue, 25 Apr 2006 23:12:53


Everyday after launching IE I always have to reset my text size to "larger"
from medium. It keeps going back to medium after each re-start.
I started noticing this after making Outlook my default E-mail handler I
always used OE for that.
I don't know if it's a coincident or not.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

IE won't hold the Text Size settings

No, it is not a coincidence.
Read my standard response:

If IE-View-Text Size does not stick....

---solution 1
If you are using Eudora 4.2 or greater then use Tools-Options-Viewing
Mail and uncheck "Use Microsoft's viewer"
It is Eudora that is setting the IE text size and unchecking that
option will stop it.

The key that Eudora 4.x will change is this:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\International\Scripts\3]
"IEFontSize"=hex:02,00,00,00

---solution 2
In Outlook 2000 go to Tools/Options/Mail Format/Fonts/International
Fonts, and for each font
change the "Font Size" entry to your desired size.
