Default making forum text bigger

Folks, I may be getting old (not really) but when I both read or post here on BC I have trouble reading the text, it seems too small. Is there a way to fix that either on my end or in my preferences? I didnt see anything when I looked. Thanks

you can also hold down the ctl key and run your mouse scroll wheel.

I tried that...nothing changed on my end. Is it supposed to make the font larger?

go to msn.com and test there. Maybe it only works on ie.

You have to have a mouse with a scroll wheel to do this.

When you are on a page, hold down Ctrl and then scroll in or out with your wheel. The font will change.

If it doesn't, make sure the window is active. This may only work with IE 6.0, I haven't tried with 5.0 or below.
