Question

I upgraded to IE 7. The zoom begins @ 100% each time I start IE. I want it to be 75% but cannot make it default to it. Do you know how to do this?

Answer

By default, Internet Explorer 7 resets the Zoom level to 100% for every new window and new tab opened. To preserve your Zoom Level setting, use these steps:

  • Open Internet Explorer
  • From the Tools menu, choose Internet Options
  • Select the Advanced tab
  • Under Accessibility, deselect the following option:

Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs

  • Click OK

The user specified Zoom level setting must be preserved from now on.
