Normal size for dpi


DPI, or "font size" is variable, depending on your monitor's native resolution, The resolution you have selected for it in Windows (Desktop-->Properties[right-click]-->Display Properties-->Settings), and what program you are currently using (browsers can be "zoomed").

I would try adjusting your monitor resokution first, before changing display font size. Try this page for some help with XP: http://www.andybrain.com/qna/2008/02/09/how-to-change-the-font-size-in-windows-xp/

This page for help in Win7: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/443-dpi-display-size-settings-change.html

There really is no such thing as "normal" DPI font size. Most people with decent eyes would probably use 96 as a standard.

My font size is too small


There are a few different ways you may be able to increase font size. One is, if you have a "zoom" button on your keyboard with + and -, you may be able to use this by itself or by pressing "Ctrl" simultainiously with it. Another way is if you have a tool icon, upper right of your screen, may look like a gear, click on that and see if you have a zoom option there. You can also adjust you DPI, by clicking "start", lower left of screen, then on "control panel". In your list(icon), find and right click on "personalization". At the upper left of screen you will see "adjust DPI..". Click on that and you will see "larger DPI" amd a custom DPI tab. You can click on the box for larger DPI or can custom adjust your size by clicking the tab. Pick the size you want and click on apply, then restart system. Using the zoom you can adjust up or down at will, changing the DPI will increase size but, the only way to adjust will be to coinside with the zoom or by physically going back to personalization and changing it.

Change size of fomts


There are a couple of different ways to do this. If you have a "zoom" button on your keyboard with +(larger) and -(smaller) you can use that, you may have to hols down "Alt" for this to work. If you have a tools icon, might look like a gear, at the top right of your screen, click on that, and if you see "zoom", click on that and choose your font size. You can also try clicking on "start" at the lower left of your screen, then on "control panel". In your list(icons), find "personalization" right click on, and open. At the top left of screen, you will see "adjust font size(DPI). Click on that and you will see "larger font size" with an empty white circle on the left. Click on the empty circle, then restart for it to take effect. You can also do a custom DPI in that same window. Make sure you restart after each change of font size. If you figured out your zoom, you can adjust font size whenever you want.

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.

How do I increase the size of the text being displayed on my laptop monitor ?


Hello,
To increase/decrease the font size,
1. Right click on the desk top screen (or double click on control panel, then choose personalize icon)
2. Under "Task" double click " adjust font size (dpi)" then click "continue".
3. Click "larger dpi" or "custom dpi" box. Choosing custom setting should indicate 100%.

To increase font size, type a percent greater than 100 (ie. 105%) or to decrease size, use a percent less than 100 (ie. 95%).
4. Click "ok". You may receive a message to restart computer for change to take effect.
5. Restart computer. Repeat process until you are happy with the results.

Can't enlarge font. The print is so small from a printing, that you can barely read it.


If the font size from the printer is smaller than on your screen then you need to adjust the font in the print options/advanced tab. The font rint out is defaulted to either 8 or 10. Go to Print Preview...Print options and go to the advanced tab and set print font size to Scale for A4 paper.

It sounds like you are printing to postcard size paper.

The font size on my HP Pavillion N5445 is too large. When checking the text size, it is already on smallest and is still too large.


Are all fonts too large or just icon fonts?

You could reset the screen to a higher resolution. Please note that everything will appear smaller including webpages and desktop icons.
Click Start\Settings\Control Panel
Then Click Display
When the box opens click Settings
When the new window opens you will see an adjustment called "Screen resolution" and a slider marked 'more' at one end and 'less' at the other.
Most modern monitors are set to 1024 by 768 pixels or above. Try moving your slider to a higher setting then click Apply\Ok
