Question about Computers & Internet
Good morning, I have read all of your solutions, but can't find one for mine. My dad uses aol as his browser, and would like to set the default font at 14 when he composes mail (he does not use broadband or dial-up, but rather Comcast high speed internet). The default setting is at either 10 or 12, and he hates having to use the arrow you have mentioned, to change the font size every time he responds to and composes mail. Can you please help us? Thank you
Hi - no problem. I can help you out. When signed on to AOL, look at your top tool bar. Click on Settings. This will open the Help window. After the Help window opens, look under the "T" section and click on Text and Font. Clicking on this will open a smaller box labeled Font and Text settings. After the box is open you can change the size and look of your font. Just use the little arrows next to the font and size. The sample will change to show you how it will look in your emails. You can also change the color, bold or not, italics or not, etc. if you wish. It's all there. Once the sample looks the way your dad wants his text in his emails to look, just click on the Save button at the bottom of the box and you'll be all done. If this solves the problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Tips for a great answer:
Note: This will change the font size for everything other than e-mail, chat messages and instant messages. (In other words, for web pages or for the general AOL pages.) 7) Click on Save.
8) Close the Font & Text window by clicking on the X button in the upper right-hand corner of the window.
