    When I try to use Excel 2007 Developer Reference the details from any of the sub-menus are returned in Tahoma font at 5.5[/SIZE] size.

    Tahoma 5.5 type is completely unreadable with my old eyes on a 21” monitor.

    Do you have any ideas on how to get a more reasonable/readable font & type size as the default?

    I know I can cut & paste the text to a WORD document or use the magnifier, but neither of those are good choices, for a quick look at the help screens.

      There’s a button for the Font size next to the print button.

        I dropped part of my explanation when I cut and pasted from my working document. I always compose offline and then post.

        I have already set the Font Size button to Largest, with the 5.5 being the result.

      Curious. How are you determining the 5.5?

      What browser are you using? Most modern browsers allow you to adjust the text size by merely holding the Ctrl key while scrolling the mouse button. Or, did I miss your problem completely?:cheers:

        Browser = IE9. Problem seems to be with MS Help, in particulary 2007 Developer Reference. It first occurred in Excel 2007 Developer Reference, but I have replicated it in the WORD version and both the Online & Offline versions.

        I’m sure it is one of my MS settings but have run out of ideas as to where to look.

        I walked through my steps again and it looks like the problem appears when I try to access Help after clicking on the ‘Developers’ tab, then the ‘Visual Basic’ tab, and then F1 or the Help tab. But this is true in both EXCEL & WORD.
