Web pages are too Large

I just hooked up my second PC and when I went online, all the webpages are very large. Not just the text but everything. I have to scroll sideways to see the pages. I don't know what could have happened. It was fine when last used in May.
Thank,s John

Different resolution?

Is it possible you're using a lower resolution on the second system as opposed to the first?
