Try holding the Ctrl Key and scrolling the mouse wheel to reduce the size. You may have magnifier running. Click the Windows plus U to bring up the utility screen and turn it off.

How to make the letters bigger on my facebook account

Step 1:
This amazingly easy trick will instantly enlarge hard to see text on your screen! Should you ever want to decrease the text, this trick in reverse will minimize text as well!

Spending lots of time online can cause eyestrain, especially if you encounter very small text. Don't squint or hunch over your screen! Squinting causes wrinkles! Using these tips you can read screen text comfortably! With the press of two keys, you can enlarge the screen text without going into your settings. Simply press and hold down the "control" key, while pressing the "plus sign" key. Be sure to keep the "control key" depressed while you press the "plus sign" key. Each repetition will enlarge the text. This can make reading small text SO much easier! To return the text back to its original (being polite to the next user), simply press, and hold down the "control" key and the "minus sign" key. Each repetition will decrease the text . also Create Menu tab right click in the top of screen (toolbar) you will see a number of toolbar options select the menu bar this will add to your screen toolbar File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help select the view from the drop down list will be a Zoom with percentages %
and text s largest to smallest

More than double of enlargement needed for reading. Is not too funny for such a exipensive huge big screan come up with so tiny letters?

Bigger screens have bigger resolutions and so have more desktop space. The side effect of this is things look smaller often.

Individual applications will often have settings for text "zooming" and enlargement. Often under the "view" menus.

There is a nice article here on getting the most from your monitor. You might find it interesting.

HTC Touch Pro text font size keeps shrinking

I was having a similar issue only my text was getting bigger. I found this link and it answered our problem and it also had other useful information:

The HTC Touch Pro supports SMS, MMS and email. Thanks to the 3D interface, users will be able to thumb scroll longer messages in the Inbox. Dynamic font resizing (zooming in/out with the scroll wheel) is also available. HTC Touch Pro also offers Message delivery reports in its Settings menu.

After reading that I tried it out on one of my text messages and sure enough it changed the font just like it said it would.
The center button allowed for the zooming in (bigger) and out (smaller). All you had to do was run your finger around it in a clockwise and/or counter clockwise motion.

I hope this helps you out.
