Font size on printed copis different than shown on incoming email

I have a Gateway laptop MA2 (6561GZ) and use a HP-Q7266A all-in-one printer. When I receive email and try to print it out, the printed font size is about half to one-third the font size of the original email. What can I do to adjust the font size to appear the same as shown on the incoming email?

    All well and good, I suppose, if you want to copy & paste all email received. There has to be a better solution?

Just maybe it is the size of the original e-mail and your monitor makes it appear larger. The way  that I do it is to copy and past the email into a word processor,like WORD, then set the type font to the size that I want before printing, then print from that file

    I guess I should have never answerd your question and told you the truth. Thanks for the low score since the answer is different that what you wanted to hear. I see why so many questions go unanswered thanks to people like you that score on what you want to hear not just  the truthful answers.

Make font larger on HP1510 printer


What font are you referring to? Have you prepared a document in a word processing program, or added text to an image file, and are disappointed because you want to see the text printed larger? If so, your best solution is to edit the document or image and change to a larger text size. For example, most text documents will normally default to either a size 10 or 11 text which is readable but small. Changing to size 12 or 14 will make the text look larger onscreen, and the text will also print larger. The font name and font size should be displayed on one of your processing program's toolbars, and is easily changed to a different font name or size. If you are simply copying an already printed document and want the text to appear larger, you should refer to your printer's User Guide. If you don't have the User Guide, you can download a free copy at this link:

If you are trying to print emails directly, you must change font size in Internet Explorer options for font size which controls email print size in Outlook Express. You may copy to a Word doc to control fonts there.

You can only change the font in the software that you are making your documents with or with your email try changing the font type and size. This is the only way to adjust the size of your font.

Print size has changed to very small off internet


Assuming that normal printing is fine, This is due to the size of the print in the email. To output larger print you'll have to copy the email into a document, change the size and then print the document.

The manual doesn't list scaleable font size as a feature. You will probably have to set your font size in the document you are making.

Font size problem when printing documents


Font sizes are a program thing nothing to do with the printer
 Examine your E-mail client set up in the read section[Different E-mail programs different setting ] probably under a heading
Tools/Options and look at how the font sizes are organized.
