Where do you want to change the font size on the overall computer or in a word document?
In a word document you will see a number at the top of the window that represents the font size that you can change. If you have problems within word there is a Help option where you can simply type: Font Size and it will bring up instructions to change.
To change font size on everything in the computer: Find an open space on the windows desktop and Right Click then select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens click the Appearance Tab then look down towards the bottom left you will see where you can change the font size from Normal to Large or Extra Large. Change the size then Click Apply then click OK.
You can also get the Display Properties by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Once the display opens click the Appearance tab to change the font size.
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
You could reset the screen to a higher resolution. Please note that everything will appear smaller including webpages and desktop icons.
Click Start\Settings\Control Panel Then Click Display When the box opens click Settings When the new window opens you will see an adjustment called "Screen resolution" and a slider marked 'more' at one end and 'less' at the other. Most modern monitors are set to 1024 by 768 pixels or above. Try moving your slider to a higher setting then click Apply\Ok
