If you want to magnify the screen to see small letters, try this : hold CTRL key and press the +/= key (near the backspace key) to magnify the whole screen, and CTRL -/_ key to make it smaller again.

more permanent solution is to right click anywhere on your desktop background where there are no icons, and set your video properties to something smaller like 800x600, or 1024x768, yours is probably higher like 1680x1050 ....

or with windows 7, just right click anywhere on your desktop background where there are no icons, and click "personalize". then click on where it says "display" on the left side of the window, and change the setting from smaller to medium or larger.

you can change these settings anytime you like, so try these solutions until you find a combination that works the way you want it to look.

did that help?

Bold letters


Did you icons get big too? Pressing Ctrl + Mouse Wheel Scroll with make your icons bigger (also Right-Click > View > Large, Medium, Small). Did your resolution change? In Windows 7 and 8, you can check your resolution by right-clicking on the Desktop and select "Personalize". From there, select "Display" located to the lower left of the window. This should show you three options: Smaller, Medium, Larger. Choose the one you like the best. From here you can change your computers Resolution by clicking "Adjust Resolution" and select the one that shows you the most screen that you are able to still read. Most websites are designed to a minimum of 1024 by 768, so I would select at least that.

Screen print is too small to read and I cant seem to resolve the issue myself


You seem to have a very high resolution setting. This leads to very small font size and difficulty in reading the text, especially on web pages. To change resolution: 1. Switch on the computer. 2. Wait till the boot process complete. 3. Click (right button on mouse) anywhere on the desktop except where there are no icons. 4. A small pop up box opens. 5. At the bottom there will be properties. 6. Click ( left button on mouse) on properteis. 7. You will see another pop up box, which will say display properties. 8. Click ( left button on mouse) on settings tab. 9. Some where in the middle of the page that opens you will see screen resolution. There will be a slider which moves moves beteen less and more. Chances are that your slider is ket towards the end of more. 10. Bring this slider towards the center . You can click in the center or click and drag. Then click Ok. You may see another box saying it needs your permission to change resolution or will go back to original resolution. Select whichever option that will change the resolution to new one. The screen may blink or at times the computer may reboot. You will see that the fonts has now become bigger. Repeat the process if necessary till you find a resolution that is comfortable for you.

The letters on my computer r so small i cant read them, how can i make them bigger


You likely have your resolution too high.  I prefer my resolution high but I can read small writing easily.   To change this right-click your desktop and choose personalize then display settings  adjust to a lower resolution but try to keep the aspect ratio similar to the ratio of the monitor you are using or the image will look squished.  once you have finalized your decision you will have to tweak it using the controls on your monitor to stretch the picture out to the edge of your monitor.    Also you can use the ease of access in the control panel for an on screen magnifier, or simply increase the font size in personalize (left column) adjust font size (DPI) (dots per inch)
