Dark screen/ large font size in explorer

I have two problems with my compaq.  First, the screen has become very dark.  I changed the graphic colors to makeit a bit lighter but the screen is not the way it used to be.  Is there a simple fix that I can do?  Second, when I use internet explorer, the font is abnormally large.  I have changed the text size to the smallest setting but on some websites, the text is still huge.  Is there a way that I can fix this?  Are the two problems related in anyway since they relate to a screen.

How do you get your computer screen back to normal size

You can right click on a empty space on the desktop then click properties. When the Desktop Properties window opens click the Appearance tab. Go down to the font size and you can change it to normal, large or extra large. Normal is what it should be.

You can also get there by going into the Control Panel and changing the Font size on the display. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open the display, click the Appearance tab and change the Font Size.

If that don't do what you are looking for you can click the Settings tab on the display to change the Screen Resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and therefore the more you will get on the screen.

I"m assuming you're using Internet Explorer. On the menu bar go to "View" then go to "Text Size" and choose the size of text you want on your web pages.
