You could try going to "control panel" then personalisation and finally display settings look for the low high resolutions slider and adjust accordingly ( for windows vista)
this will adjust you monitor resolution so more items can fit on your screen

for windows xp i think from memory that it is "display settings" in the control panel you need i hope this helps in some way

Increase font size


Print is so small? Are you talking about on a piece of paper you printed out that it is small? If so what program did you use to print it? If it's a document in something like Microsoft Word, you just highlight the text and increase the Font Size.

If you are talking about the fonts on the screen and webpages being small you can Right Click on an open space on the desktop and select Properties to get the Display to open. Or you can click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open the display then select the Appearance tab and change the Font Size. It can be Normal, Large or Extra Large.

  3. Make sure that the Hide fonts based on language settings check box is selected. If it's not, select it, and then click OK.

I want to know how to change my text size because the words are o big


Go to your control panel in the start menu. Search "Display" in the search box and then click Display when it appears. Then choose to expand things by 125% or 150% with "medium" or "large" respectively.

How to change text size to be larger


This depends upon what program you are running.

If you mean the Internet, you can change the view settings on most browsers by zooming in (go to "View" in your toolbar).

If it's a Microsoft application like "Word" or "Excel", you can increase the font size or the magnification of the document - again, from the toolbar.

Text has changed


Try opening the Control Panel and double click on Fonts (it's the tenth icon from the top). You may also try to open add0remove programs and see if you accidentally installed some type of Font Program in another language. If you did, try to uninstall it as well. GOOD LUCK!!
