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.

    Hello,

    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

On Aol, I wish to change the font from 12 to 14 permanently not just for one "reply", ie, I want the default to be 14, not 12, is there a way to do this ??


TO CHANGE THE DEFAULT FONT SIZE FOR E-MAIL IN AOL 9.0/9.1
1) Click on the Settings button at the top of the AOL window.
2) Click on Font and Text.
3) Click on Font.
4) Click on the Down Arrow next to: Arial, then click on Times New Roman or whatever font you want.
5) Click on the Down Arrow next to 10 or whatever the font size is, and then click on the 12 or 14 or whatever font size you want. (The larger the number, the larger the font size.)
6) Under Text Settings, click on ₪ Small, ₪ Medium or ₪ Large [click on only one of these] for "Where possible, display the following size of text on AOL."
Note: This will change the font size for everything other than e-mail, chat messages and instant messages. (In other words, for web pages or for the general AOL pages.) 7) Click on Save.
8) Close the Font & Text window by clicking on the X button in the upper right-hand corner of the window.

Change to larger font on aol e-mail


AOL Mail is an email service provided to the customers of American Online as well as Web users.

When you print an email using AOL Mail software, you may notice that the font size either appears too small or too large.


AOL Mail gives you the flexibility to adjust the font size and thus, the size of the print.

Note that these instructions apply to AOL 9.0 or higher.


If you have an old edition, follow instructions from the link specified under Resources.

Launch your AOL Mail software from the Start menu or desktop shortcut.


Log in using your AOL screen name and password.


Click "Settings" on the top bar.


Click "Font and Text."


Click the font type drop-down menu to choose either a larger or smaller font type than the current one.


Click the font size drop-down menu to choose either a larger or smaller font size based on your preference.


Click "Save."

Hope this helps

Font sizing


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.

Change font size in e mail


The printer prints whatever it's told to by the computer. Your printer really doesn't control the fonts.

When you are printing stuff from the internet (web pages, email, etc.) the reason for the small print is that it is related to the size of the monitor and it's viewing setup (the higher the screen resolution, the smaller the print will be when printing it out even though it looks good on the monitor).

One way you can make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet Explorer), click on "View," then "Text Size" then select a size like "Larger" or "Largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to.)

Another method is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "File" then "Print Preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "Shrink To Fit" in it. Click the arrow for a drop down list and choose something probably above 90% or more (maybe 100 or 125%) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out.

The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like Word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.

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.

My mom can't get on the internet because the font keeps changing size. It jumps from normal 100% to very small. So small, we can't even see it. It is hard to see where to click to put it back to 100%. Some...


Hi,

I've no idea why the font size keeps jumping from large to small. Maybe its because you are resting your hand a little to heavy on the Ctrl key on the keyboard.

Anyhow, to adjust the font size on a web page hold down Ctrl and use the - and + keys to use the internet zoom feature.


Regards.
