Gmail problems small fonts to small


Reduce / Increase Text Size on My Gmail

Between the message list, search bar, labels and chat window, GMail's web interface displays a lot of information.

If your web browser is displaying all of these items in a large font, they may not fit comfortably on your screen.

Fortunately, you can easily change your web browser's text size on Gmail to ensure that all of the components fit.

Alternatively, you can use a special GMail Labs feature to change the default text size for all of the emails that you compose.

Navigate to your GMail inbox in your web browser.


Hold the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard and press the "-" key. Your web browser will shrink all of the text on the current web page.

You can repeat this step to shrink the text even more.

Hold "Ctrl" and press "+" to increase the text size if you shrink it too much.
Gmail Default Font

Navigate to your GMail inbox and click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen.
Select "Labs" from the drop-down menu.
Scroll down to "Default Text Styling" and click "Enable."
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes."
Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen and select "Mail Settings." Click the "TT" icon in the "Default Text Style" section. Select "Small."

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes." Your new email messages will automatically use GMail's small text size.

How to change text size in Internet Explorer


Some web sites use larger text while others use small, hard-to-read text. To change the size of text that appears on a web page in Internet Explorer, follow one of the two procedures below.<br /> <br /> <b>To change text size:</b><br /> <br /> To make the text that is displayed in your web browser larger or smaller, click View on Internet Explorer's menu bar. From the drop-down menu, select Text Size. The five choices for text size will appear: Largest, Larger, Medium, Smaller, and Smallest. Medium is selected by default, but you can choose the size that you want. To change to a different size, just go back to the View menu and choose a new size.<br /> <br /> Internet Explorer saves the selection that you make. If you load a new web page, or close and reopen your browser, the text size will remain at the level that you've chosen, until you choose differently.<br /> <br /> <b>To zoom:</b><br /> <br /> Another way to alter text size is to use the Zoom feature. Zoom increases or decreases text size, but it will also make everything else on the page (such as graphics) larger or smaller as well. Zoom options can be found under the View menu, next to Zoom. You can choose a preset percentage to zoom, or enter a custom value, or just go larger or smaller by stepped increments.<br /> <br /> The nice thing about zoom is that it has keyboard shortcuts associated with it, unlike the Text Size feature. By pressing [CTRL][+] you can zoom in (make everything appear larger) and [CTRL][-] will zoom out. If you want to reset the zoom value back to the standard view, press [CTRL][0]. These shortcuts will affect text size, but only in proportion with everything else on the page.<br /> <br /> Some web sites (such as Yahoo) are designed so that the Text Size feature won't override the text size specified in the site's code. For sites like these, you can use the Zoom feature to enlarge or reduce text size.

Windows XP text size is too small. How do I make it largerr?


Click on your Desktop with the right mouse button and select Properties from the Shortcut menu that appears. In the Properties window, click on the Appearance tab. At the bottom of the Appearance tab you will see "Font size:" click on that drop-down menu and you can select Normal, Large Fonts, or Extra-Large Fonts. This is how you change the size of the text that is specific to Windows.
To change the size of the text in Internet Explorer, open up Internet Explorer and find the View menu (it should be near the top left of the screen) click on View and in the menu that pops down, hover your mouse over Text Size so the menu will pop out to the right, here you can select Smallest, Smaller, Normal, Large, Larger, and Largest.
If you would like to increase the size of everything in Internet Explorer, you can hover over Zoom in the View pop down menu and change how much you are zoomed in, this will increase everything for you!

I hope this helps! If not, please comment back and let us know!
