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.

I want to know how to increase the size of my fonts on my printer . where the computers fonts are large enough when I print out aany thing it is small I have a lexmart x 5070


iterry,
The font size is controlled by the application, whether it be MS Word, Excel, or whatever.
If it is Microsoft Word, then:
1. Open a document
2. Select [Select All] from the [Edit] menu option
3. All text is now highlighted.
4. [Format] [Font]
5. Select the font Size, etc.
6. Print it out.
You may not want to "save" this document.
Do the same for other documents, etc.

Lettering too small


to change the lettering of titles, right click on the desktop and click properties and then go to appearance. to change the font of a webpage, hold down the Ctrl button and use the scroller on the mouse to scroll up to make it bigger, or down to make is smaller. (*Note- I use Firefox, and I do not know what to do on Internet Explorer. I am assuming it would be the same for Safari. I do not know about Google Chrome or any other browsers)

Changing font size for larger monitor.


You can adjust your settings to something more to your liking by right clicking on your desktop in an empty area - then choose "properties" from the menu that pops up.

In the new window go to the tab that says "settings" and adjust the screen resolution to something a little larger. If you change your desktop settings in this manner then a window will pop up immediately after the adjustment asking you if you want to keep the new settings or revert back to the old one. If you don't select something within like 15-30 seconds it will change back. It does that just in case you change the settings so bad you can't see anything.

Another place to adjust the size of your fonts is to go to the "appearance" tab of the same menu and look for "font size" and there you can make your fonts bigger and ridiculously big, in case you still need to after changing the resolution.

I hope you find this information helpful, have a blessed day!
