Changing screen resolution within a specific internet window - how to change it back

Hi. I recently got a windows 8 Lenovo laptop, and I've managed to change the resolution to TINY in two open chrome and IE tabs - one for yahoo mail and the other for amazon, somehow hitting some keys in combination that changed it only for that window and no other. Now i have no idea how to change it back to a readable size. can anyone help?

(my general screen resolution has not changed)

thank you.

In IE right click anywhere at the top (blue blank space) and tick the status bar. At the bottom of the page the status bar will show the zoom in percentage. Click the down arrow near it and select the zoom value. You can also select a custom value. It will be in Chrome's 'tool' section as well but I don't use that particular browser.

Only do it on the pages that have been zoom diminished.

Control and + increases font size in a window, control and - makes it smaller.

The OP stated it's for a particular page on a tab on the browsers. General zoom would zoom all pages.
