    Using WinXP and IE 7. At the bottom right of my screen in IE, I can click on
    100% and the zoom will go to 125% or I can double-click and it will go to
    150%. The next click brings it back to 100%. Is there a way to change the
    default from 125/150 to 150/200?

    If not in IE7, how about in IE8?

    Thank you!

    It's not changeable.
    From IE Help:

    Zoom in on a webpage

    Internet Explorer Zoom lets you enlarge or reduce the view of a webpage.
    Unlike changing font size, zoom enlarges or reduces everything on the page,
    including text and images. You can zoom from 10% to 1000%.

    Click to open Internet Explorer.

    On the bottom right of the Internet Explorer screen, click the arrow next to
    the Change Zoom Level button .

    To go to a predefined zoom level, click the percentage of enlargement or
    reduction you want.
    - or -
    To specify a custom level, click Custom. In the Percentage zoom box, type a
    zoom value, and then click OK.

    Notes
    If you have a mouse with a wheel, hold down the Ctrl key, and then scroll
    the wheel to zoom in or out.

    If you keep clicking the Change Zoom Level button , it will cycle through
    100%, 125%, and 150%, giving you a quick enlargement of the webpage.

    From the keyboard, you can increase or decrease the zoom value in 10%
    increments. To zoom in, press Ctrl+(+). To zoom out, press Ctrl+(-). To
    restore the zoom to 100%, press Ctrl+0.

    Thank you, KCB! I knew all that but was hoping there was a workaround that
    would enable me to go to 200% with one click.
