Setting More General Options

The General tab also boasts four buttons at the bottom:

  • Colors— Click this button to display the Colors dialog box. There you can deactivate the Use Windows Colors check box to set the default text and background colors used in the Internet Explorer window. If you leave this check box activated, Internet Explorer uses the colors defined in the Display properties sheet. You can also use the Visited and Unvisited buttons to set the default link colors. Finally, activate the Use Hover Color check box to have Internet Explorer change the color of a link when you position the mouse pointer over it. Use the Hover button to set the color.

  • Languages— Click this button to display the Language Preference dialog box, which enables you to add one or more languages to Internet Explorer. This makes it possible for Internet Explorer to handle pages in foreign languages. You can also use this dialog box to set up relative priorities for the designated languages.

  • Fonts— Click this button to display the Fonts dialog box, which enables you to determine how web page fonts appear within Internet Explorer.

    Tip

    To change the size of the fonts Internet Explorer uses, select Page, Text Size, and then choose a relative font size from the cascade menu (for example, Larger or Smaller). If you have a mouse with a wheel button, hold down Ctrl while pressing and turning the wheel. This changes the onscreen text size on the fly.


  • Accessibility— Click this button to display the Accessibility dialog box. From here, you can tell Internet Explorer to ignore the colors, font styles, and font sizes specified on any web page. You can also specify your own style sheet to use when formatting web pages.
