Try changing the default font Lotus Notes uses to one of the standard fonts (if you can, that is). For some reason Lotus Notes is using a bitmap font as its default, which it shouldn't be doing

Gmail problems small fonts to small


Reduce / Increase Text Size on My Gmail

Between the message list, search bar, labels and chat window, GMail's web interface displays a lot of information.

If your web browser is displaying all of these items in a large font, they may not fit comfortably on your screen.

Fortunately, you can easily change your web browser's text size on Gmail to ensure that all of the components fit.

Alternatively, you can use a special GMail Labs feature to change the default text size for all of the emails that you compose.

Navigate to your GMail inbox in your web browser.


Hold the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard and press the "-" key. Your web browser will shrink all of the text on the current web page.

You can repeat this step to shrink the text even more.

Hold "Ctrl" and press "+" to increase the text size if you shrink it too much.
Gmail Default Font

Navigate to your GMail inbox and click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen.
Select "Labs" from the drop-down menu.
Scroll down to "Default Text Styling" and click "Enable."
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes."
Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen and select "Mail Settings." Click the "TT" icon in the "Default Text Style" section. Select "Small."

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes." Your new email messages will automatically use GMail's small text size.

When I reply to an e-mail on OUtlook 2010, the font size is very small - and I cannot read the original or what I am typing. Any ideas on how to restore the normal size


Having trouble seeing that small default font of Microsoft Outlook emails? There are three ways of making Outlook email text bigger.
The first includes increasing the text size of the outgoing email messages.
The second includes increasing the text size of messages that are replied to or forwarded.
The last includes making all the text of incoming emails larger as well.

Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.
Find the Personal Stationary tab, then find and click the Font button located under the New Mail Messages heading.
On the Font tab that appears, there will be a variety of options including changing the type of font, style, size and color.


Find the drop-down menu that is under the Size heading and select a bigger number.
Click OK and the new setting will take place the next time a message is composed.

Replies or Forwarded Mail
Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.

Find the Personal Stationary tab, then click the Font button that is located under the Replying or Forwarding Messages heading.
Find the drop-down menu that is under the Size heading and select a bigger number.
Click OK and the new settings will take place the next time a message is replied to or forwarded.

Incoming Email Messages
Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.

Look for the Display Font heading on the Personal Stationary tab and increase the size the size of the font by selecting a larger number.
This will increase the text size for all plain text incoming email.
However, it will not increase the text size of incoming HTML emails.

Set the option to read all incoming email as plain text if it is necessary to increase the text size of all incoming emails.
To do this, go to Tools, then click on Options, then look for the button that says Email Options and click Read all Standard Mail as Plain Text.

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

How do I change the print size in everything that appears ont the computer


That will depend on what operating system you are using. Typically, you have to change the default font size in each application, including the file viewer ("Finder" in Mac OS, "My Computer" in Windows). For example, in a Mac OS X Finder window, you would click the arrow next to the gear icon and select "Show View Options" from the bottom of the pop-up menu. This will give you a font size selector along with other options. Another example more typical of individual applications is the Firefox Preferences menu ("Tools" in Windows). Here you would click the Content tab to bring up the default font selection.
Sometimes changing screen resolution affects the apparent font size - going to a lower resolution makes the fonts look larger. (If a character occupied a 20x40 space at 1280 x 960 resolution, that same space at 640 x 480 will look twice as large.) This will not hold for all applications; many automatically rescale fonts when the resolution is changed.
You can also use Universal Access to zoom in on the screen with

I have a very small font size on my aol mail. How do I increase the font size


You can increase the font size by going to your browser's settings and changing the font size from there. How to get to these settings depends on which browser you use. An alternative is decreasing the resolution of your monitor.

My font is too small on my computer how do i change it?


In Mac OS X, it is not possible to change the system font size directly. You can however change the resolution by
  1. Going into System Preferences
  2. Under the hardware section, select Displays
  3. Change to a desired (or usable) resolution
And that's it.

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.

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.
