Re: How do I change the size of the windows on AOL
Right click anywhere on your desktop, click Properties, and choose the Settings Tab. In the middle of the screen you will see Screen Resolution. Choose a resolution with a higher number than you are currently using. Let me know if this doesn't help.

TO CHANGE THE DEFAULT FONT SIZE FOR E-MAIL IN AOL 9.0/9.1
1) Click on the Settings button at the top of the AOL window.
2) Click on Font and Text.
3) Click on Font.
4) Click on the Down Arrow next to: Arial, then click on Times New Roman or whatever font you want.
5) Click on the Down Arrow next to 10 or whatever the font size is, and then click on the 12 or 14 or whatever font size you want. (The larger the number, the larger the font size.)
6) Under Text Settings, click on ₪ Small, ₪ Medium or ₪ Large [click on only one of these] for "Where possible, display the following size of text on AOL."
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.
The same thing happened to me. All of a sudden, the email inbox and saved favorite places lists have changed to a crummy small font & the letters "bleed" together. Very difficult to read & there's no way to change it! Grrr!!
A recent comment about small fonts in AOL Desktop prompted me to explain how to increase the size of your fonts in your Windows Operating System. AOL Desktop will recognize your preferred OS font size so that text throughout the program will be larger. (To increase your browser font size, which is handled separately, go to the Tools menu in the AOL Desktop browser, choose "Power Browsing" and go to "Page Display".) To set the font size in your Operating System (warning: this will apply to all your other applications, not just AOL), go to your Display Properties in Windows XP / Personalization Settings in Windows Vista. On XP, you can right-click on your PC desktop background and choose "Properties", then select the "Appearance" tab". Look for the "Font Size" menu at the bottom, and choose the dropdown for your preferred font size (e.g. normal, large, and extra large). In the screenshot below, you'll see the steps I just described below. I'm running "Large Fonts" so you can see how it impacts my window chrome...
If you have a Yahoo! account, you can change the appearance of your messages.
For example, you can change font color or size.
If the default font size for Yahoo! is too small or too large, there are two ways to change the font size.
You can change the font size while composing a message or you can change your settings and change the font size for all messages.
Click "New" to compose a message and click "Rich Text" beside the "Subject" line to show font options.
The appearance bar will open in your e-mail message; you can change font color and size here.
Highlight the text you want to change the font size. Change Font Size in a Yahoo! Mail Message
Look to the font options toolbar above the e-mail message and click the arrow beside "12," the default font size.
A drop-down list will open with the available font sizes.
Select a different font size from the drop-down list.
The font size of the selected text will change.
Change Font Size Permanently in Yahoo! Mail
Sign in to your Yahoo! Mail account and click "Options" located at the top, right corner of the window.
Select "More Options" from the drop-down list.
The Options page will open.
You can change your signature or message settings here. Select "General" from the list of options and look to the section marked "Plain text font."
Click the arrow beside "12," the default font size and select a different font size from the drop-down list.
Enter on a page that has text. Then from the top-right menu, click on Page menu and watch down to the Text Size. You have some options like Smallest, smaller, medium, large, very large. Choose the desired.
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.
