Font sizes on this Forum and Webmail have shrunk dramatically - help!

the fonts on my PN webmail screen have suddenly shrunk (as indeed they have in the forum box in which I am now typing this). I recall previously seeing a box on the bottom toolbar with a list of percentages in it and you could select a figure and sizes would alter, but this has now disappeared.
Any suggestions, please?

Have you tried Ctrl 0 on the affected pages.
That's Control Zero on the numbers pad.

Thanks Strat, but that didn't have any effect.

You could just try Ctrl and + and see if they get bigger

Thanks Oldjim and Strat
I  am pleased to report that I have accidentally solved the problem. There is a toolbar at the top of my page above PlusNet's window(s) which contains tabs headed `Page', `Safety' and `Tools'.  Under the `Page' drop-down menu there is an item `Zoom' with various percentages to tick.  I have restored the 100% mode and happily can now read my screen.
So my mentally cursing PN probably not justified, though puzzled why the setting changed in the first place.

Does the toolbar show a keyboard short cut for changing the zoom level? Wondered if you'd unintentionally pressed that key combination.

If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel you should be able to press CTRL and use the scroll wheel to zoom in/out.
