Font sizes not accurate

When I click on a font size like maybe "12" it gives me a very large size like maybe a "36" or something. I cannot get it corrected to do the font size I want.

    Are you saying when you print the font size is wrong or is the font size wrong on the computer screen?

I think your screen resolution had changed. For that right click on your desktop and select properties and select settings tab.

There Goto Screen Resolution and select the screen resolution to 800x600 or 1024by768.

Hope this will help

Hi i changed the font size on my email how do i get it back to bigger font

Assuming you are using Outlook, click on Tools > Options > Stationary & Fonts.
This will give you a window entitled Signatures and Stationary with e-mail Signature and Personal Stationary tags. Click on either to vary respective fonts and sizes. The Personal Stationary tag gives you options to change fonts for new e-mail messages and for Replying/Forwarding messages. Just click on the respective FONT button.

How do I increase the type on my AOL emails

You will need to find the font & font size options on the AOL email system. The font will be what the letters look like and font size will be how large the letters are. Standard font and font size is Times New Roman 12 (this message is in that font and size). You can increase the font size from anywhere like 14 to 72 or so. Try 18 or 20.

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!

How do I make my font and text size bigger?

If you want to make font and text larger in a Word document, just look at the taskbar and click font pull-down window (usually the default is Times Roman) and pick whatever font you want, then click the pull-down window (usually the default is 12) and pick a larger size.
Or you need to make a display adjustment. Click Start, Click Control Panel, Click Personalization, click Display Settings, choose Resolution up or down which will adjust icon and font size on your computer.
Or click start, Control Panel, Personalization then:
  • In the left pane, click Adjust font size (DPI). If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  • In the DPI Scaling dialog box, do one of the following:

    • To increase the size of text and other items on the screen, click Larger scale (120 DPI)-make text more readable, and then click OK.

    • To decrease the size of text and other items on the screen, click Default scale (96 DPI)-fit more information, and then click OK.

    To see the changes, close all of your programs, and then restart Windows.
