You can change the dfont size from the menu, but that setting afects the entire page of print. You different size fonts are controled from the codes sent to the printer from the software. Recreate the document, or create a document with a sample of that small print and see if the printer prints it.

Make font larger on HP1510 printer


What font are you referring to? Have you prepared a document in a word processing program, or added text to an image file, and are disappointed because you want to see the text printed larger? If so, your best solution is to edit the document or image and change to a larger text size. For example, most text documents will normally default to either a size 10 or 11 text which is readable but small. Changing to size 12 or 14 will make the text look larger onscreen, and the text will also print larger. The font name and font size should be displayed on one of your processing program's toolbars, and is easily changed to a different font name or size. If you are simply copying an already printed document and want the text to appear larger, you should refer to your printer's User Guide. If you don't have the User Guide, you can download a free copy at this link:

HI,
One way 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 on that box for a drop down list and choose something, like 90% (there is a custom option at the bottom of the list if you need to set something unique in between what's listed) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out and choose the one that looks and works best for you without cutting off text somewhere. This will make it larger when printed out.

Another way that usually works to make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the 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.)

Sometimes adjusting the current window's magnification (lower right corner of screen or Ctrl button + scroll wheel on mouse) can have an affect on print size.

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.

Print too small


If you are using something like a BROWSER (IE, Chrome, etc) on the keyboard hold down CTRL and press ONCE the + button. Does this repeatedly until the font size is larger.

Please note this will NOT increase font on GRAPHIC text as those are set graphics and do not zoom.

For windows computers go to CONTROL PANEL and select APPEARANCE AND PERSONALIZATION

From there under DISPLAY select "Make Text and Other Items Larger or Smaller" Play with the settings within there until you get the font large enough for you to see.

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 you change font size of email printout?


Internet Browser Instructions

  • If you open your email account using a browser, there is a very simple way to increase the font. Font size options are located either under "Tools" ("Options" or "Preferences" then "Content") or "View" (text size) on your browser's main menu. Change the font to a larger size, which may be set by number or by selecting "Larger" or "Largest" font from the list of options. You may have to click "Advanced" or the similar option in the "Fonts" section of some browsers to adjust the font properly.

    Next, click "File" then "Print Preview" on your browser's main menu. This will show you how the email will look when printed. Click "Page Setup" and deselect the "Shrink to Fit Page" option. This will allow you to print the email at the new, larger font size. Be sure to return your browser's font size to normal when you are finished printing the email, or else all of your pages will display with a larger font.

Other Email Software
  • If you use a non-browser email software program to view your emails, insert your email contents into Microsoft Word (or a similar word processing program) to print it in large letters. Select the entire message from your email software then go to Word to paste the contents into a blank document. You can then select the text of the email and increase the size of the font. When you're done, print the file as you would normally. You can also perform this action with an email that you open inside of a browser.

Font size on printed copis different than shown on incoming email


Just maybe it is the size of the original e-mail and your monitor makes it appear larger. The way  that I do it is to copy and past the email into a word processor,like WORD, then set the type font to the size that I want before printing, then print from that file

Font size problem when printing documents


Font sizes are a program thing nothing to do with the printer
 Examine your E-mail client set up in the read section[Different E-mail programs different setting ] probably under a heading
Tools/Options and look at how the font sizes are organized.

Fonts and sizes are typically controlled by the application you are using. Are you sure you are increasing the font size? I've had some users confused by the zoom feature which is more like a magnifying lens. It just makes thing larger for viewing purposes and does not affect the print size. To change the actual font size of a document already created you would first highlight the text in the document. In Word (other applications are similar) you would then select Format from the main menu bar, then select Font. In the next box that appears you would click on the Font tab, and then in the Size field select a larger font size. After that click on OK and you should see your font size change. Let us know if that was your problem or not.
