Why are my fonts so tiny on Facebook?


You may find that the default font size for your Facebook home page is too small.
There is not a way to adjust the font size of your home page through Facebook, but you can use the zoom function on your Internet browser.
This process only takes a simple keyboard shortcut and is compatible with several Internet browsers, including Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer.

Open facebook.com.
Enter your Facebook log-in information and click the "Login" button.
Hold down the Ctrl key and press the "+" key. Press the "+" key several times, until your Facebook home page font is at a size that is to your liking.

I can not get the printer to print from the internet in bigger size font all the words come out very small


If you are using Internet Explorer 7 or 8 you have an option to scale the size of the printouts. The default settings is to have Internet Explorer fit everything to the page.

Instructions on how to change these settings can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/community/columns/shrunk.mspx

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!

My words in my compt. are so small i cant even read my websites well.my kids played wiyh it and they shranked all the words.can u help?


Assuming you have a MS Windows OS. There are a couple of ways to remedy this situation. Option one is to change the screen resolution by right clicking on the desktop screen and selecting Properties and then Settings. Change the Screen Resolution to something lower than the current setting. This will cause everything to enlarge on the screen. Option 2 is to just change the font size as the standard. Right click on the desktop screen and select Properties. Select Appearance and change the Font Size to Large Fonts or Extra Large Fonts. If you are trying to change the font in Internet Explorer then choose View/Text Size, select Larger or Largest. That will change only the fonts inside Internet Explorer.

Prints very small


The font size is going to be controlled by the program you are using. For normal word processing you would use a 10 or 12 point font.

If you are referring to printing from a browser like Internet Explorer, you can change the font from the Internet Explorer menu VIEW > TEXT SIZE > MEDIUM (normal).

Note: Internet Explorer font settings effect Outlook Express too.
