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.

How can I change the font on my aol emails received? It just changed all by itself.


it would actually depend on how you access/view your e-mails. if you are using AOL.COM, holding down the CTRL key and using the mouse scroll wheel up or down will increase or decrease the size of the fonts. Take note though that it will also affect all other web pages you will view. Another thing to check if the front settings on the browser program you are using either internet explorer, firefox, chrome . Check the internet options/browser settings and look through the content section and see if you will find an option to adjust the size even the font type settings. After doing so, clear temporary internet files and close then re-open your browser to make sure the changes made will reflect. if in case you are using AOL's software, check through its own settings/preferences for fonts.

How do I increase the font size regarding my aol in box mail?


The same thing happened to me. All of a sudden, the email inbox and saved favorite places lists have changed to a crummy small font & the letters "bleed" together. Very difficult to read & there's no way to change it! Grrr!!

How to change font size


A recent comment about small fonts in AOL Desktop prompted me to explain how to increase the size of your fonts in your Windows Operating System. AOL Desktop will recognize your preferred OS font size so that text throughout the program will be larger. (To increase your browser font size, which is handled separately, go to the Tools menu in the AOL Desktop browser, choose "Power Browsing" and go to "Page Display".) To set the font size in your Operating System (warning: this will apply to all your other applications, not just AOL), go to your Display Properties in Windows XP / Personalization Settings in Windows Vista. On XP, you can right-click on your PC desktop background and choose "Properties", then select the "Appearance" tab". Look for the "Font Size" menu at the bottom, and choose the dropdown for your preferred font size (e.g. normal, large, and extra large). In the screenshot below, you'll see the steps I just described below. I'm running "Large Fonts" so you can see how it impacts my window chrome...

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

I"m assuming you're using Internet Explorer. On the menu bar go to "View" then go to "Text Size" and choose the size of text you want on your web pages.
