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.

How do you reduce the screen size i:e all the words on screen have enlarged in size

If you are referring to the size of the text within your browser (when you are on the internet only), try pressing the CTRL and - Keys at the same time (CTRL and the 'MINUS' Key)
If everything on the screen is bigger, programs included:
1) Right click on your desktop and go to properties. 2) At the top of the screen, click on settings. 3) Under "screen resolution" drag the slider to the right (towards more). More resolution makes things smaller on your screen. Less resolution makes them bigger.
Good luck!

How do i increase the font size on my samsung impression . the font is really small in the text message

Well when you are sending a text message you cannot make them any bigger. However when you reciew them you can enlarge and make the text smaller. so when ever you veiw a text message just hit the up and down button (volume controlls) on the left side of the phone and you can see when you hit up the text gets bigger and when you hit down the text gets smaller.

Browser Enlarged

If part of the web page is not visible on the screen, you may have accidentally dragged it off to the side. Click the green button at the top-left corner of the web page to resize the window to fit on the screen.
If your screen resolution is set to 800 x 600 or less, most web pages won't fit on the screen. If possible, increase resolution to at least 1024 x 768 in System Preferences > Displays.
You may have accidentally hit Command (Apple key) and the plus sign (+) key -- this makes the text bigger. To reduce text size, hit Command and hyphen (-) key.
Finally, if Zoom is turned on in the Universal Access setting, you be looking at only part of the screen -- zoomed in like using a magnifying glass. Hold down Command (Apple key) and ALT key and hyphen (-) to see if this is on -- it will unzoom (zoom out) by one step. Turn this off or on in System Preferences > Universal Access.
I hope that helps.
