Need larger typeface for easier reading on monitor

there are a couple of ways you can get larger font. On your keyboard you may have a "zoom" button with a +(larger) and -(smaller), where you can adjust your font up and down as necessary. If you have a tools icon at the top right of your screen, might look like a gear, click on that and see if there is "zoom" in there, click on that and click on font size you need, again you can adjust up and down as required. You can also click on "start", lower left of your screen, find "control panel" and click on that. In your list(icons) you should see "adjust font size(DPI) at upper left of your screen. Click on that and then click on continue. You should see "larger font size" with a empty circle on the left. Click on the empty circle to select, or, you may want to click on "custom DPI"(lower right) to do a custom size. I recommend going with the first option and resatrt for it to take effect. If this is not the size you want, you can then try the custom DPI. Make sure you restart after each change of font size. If you figured out you zoom, you can now still adjust the size there also.
