Change font size in e mail


The printer prints whatever it's told to by the computer. Your printer really doesn't control the fonts.

When you are printing stuff from the internet (web pages, email, etc.) the reason for the small print is that it is related to the size of the monitor and it's viewing setup (the higher the screen resolution, the smaller the print will be when printing it out even though it looks good on the monitor).

One way you can make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet Explorer), click on "View," then "Text Size" then select a size like "Larger" or "Largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to.)

Another method is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "File" then "Print Preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "Shrink To Fit" in it. Click the arrow for a drop down list and choose something probably above 90% or more (maybe 100 or 125%) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out.

The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like Word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.

How do you change font size of email printout?


Internet Browser Instructions

  • If you open your email account using a browser, there is a very simple way to increase the font. Font size options are located either under "Tools" ("Options" or "Preferences" then "Content") or "View" (text size) on your browser's main menu. Change the font to a larger size, which may be set by number or by selecting "Larger" or "Largest" font from the list of options. You may have to click "Advanced" or the similar option in the "Fonts" section of some browsers to adjust the font properly.

    Next, click "File" then "Print Preview" on your browser's main menu. This will show you how the email will look when printed. Click "Page Setup" and deselect the "Shrink to Fit Page" option. This will allow you to print the email at the new, larger font size. Be sure to return your browser's font size to normal when you are finished printing the email, or else all of your pages will display with a larger font.

Other Email Software
  • If you use a non-browser email software program to view your emails, insert your email contents into Microsoft Word (or a similar word processing program) to print it in large letters. Select the entire message from your email software then go to Word to paste the contents into a blank document. You can then select the text of the email and increase the size of the font. When you're done, print the file as you would normally. You can also perform this action with an email that you open inside of a browser.

How do you adjust Fontsize on a Lexmark X5270 printer? In printing out emails the font size is VERY tiny I would like to have a larger font to make reading easier.


Actually, you can change the font size through the application you're using to make your emails. Try to explore the application settings before printing your emails. The Lexmark printer nor the printer software is not capable of changing the font size of your documents on your computer.

I have tried every thing that i could with out sucsess to enlarge the printer font size on my documents i can't hardly read them thay are so small.


If you are trying to print emails directly, you must change font size in Internet Explorer options for font size which controls email print size in Outlook Express. You may copy to a Word doc to control fonts there.

When I print out articles or emails the font is very small(tough to read) I can increase the font on my computer, but I want to print the bigger font size . I have an HP Photosmart4700


You can only change the font in the software that you are making your documents with or with your email try changing the font type and size. This is the only way to adjust the size of your font.

Print size has changed to very small off internet


Assuming that normal printing is fine, This is due to the size of the print in the email. To output larger print you'll have to copy the email into a document, change the size and then print the document.

Font size problem when printing documents


Hi, my name is adam. I am pretty sure what you are describing is a common problem. Before you print you need to go to print setup or print preview and change the zoom settings so that when it prints it can be zoomed to where you can see it clearer.
