You can adjust your settings to something more to your liking by right clicking on your desktop in an empty area - then choose "properties" from the menu that pops up.

In the new window go to the tab that says "settings" and adjust the screen resolution to something a little larger. If you change your desktop settings in this manner then a window will pop up immediately after the adjustment asking you if you want to keep the new settings or revert back to the old one. If you don't select something within like 15-30 seconds it will change back. It does that just in case you change the settings so bad you can't see anything.

Another place to adjust the size of your fonts is to go to the "appearance" tab of the same menu and look for "font size" and there you can make your fonts bigger and ridiculously big, in case you still need to after changing the resolution.

I hope you find this information helpful, have a blessed day!

How do you change the font size on the monitor


To change the font size, point your mouse to the desktop then right click. Click on Properties - Appearance (tab). The third option is FONT SIZE. You can adjust the size from there.


Hope this helps. Thank you!

Cant hardly read the screen the printing is so small and a little fuzzy


Change the display font size. In Win 7, right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution then choose make Text and other items larger or smaller. This brings up Windows Appearance and Personalization > Display (small, medium, large buttons). With Win7, you can also turn on Clear Type for LCD displays.

The earlier versions of Windows have the same display font option but it may be a subset of the Accessibility Control Panel. Macs probably have a similar control in the OS.

I hope this helps.
