Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My mom can't get on the internet because the font keeps changing size. It jumps from normal 100% to very small. So small, we can't even see it. It is hard to see where to click to put it back to 100%. Some times it goes to a very large font. So large only a few letters can be seen. What do I do to stop it from jumping size?

Hi,

I've no idea why the font size keeps jumping from large to small. Maybe its because you are resting your hand a little to heavy on the Ctrl key on the keyboard.

Anyhow, to adjust the font size on a web page hold down Ctrl and use the - and + keys to use the internet zoom feature.


Regards.

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 to change text size to be larger


This depends upon what program you are running.

If you mean the Internet, you can change the view settings on most browsers by zooming in (go to "View" in your toolbar).

If it's a Microsoft application like "Word" or "Excel", you can increase the font size or the magnification of the document - again, from the toolbar.

Are you using Internet Explorer? If so you should see a "100%" in the bottom right hand corner. Click on that and it will change to "125%". This is the magnification level of web pages and can be changed all the way up to 400% or a custom size. Easiest way to change sizes.

Change the print size


Go to you control panel, open and bring up Display (properties). Click on Appearance and check to see that "Font Size" reads normal. I tried it on my Computer just now and the change to extra large is frightening. :D

Prints very small


The font size is going to be controlled by the program you are using. For normal word processing you would use a 10 or 12 point font.

If you are referring to printing from a browser like Internet Explorer, you can change the font from the Internet Explorer menu VIEW > TEXT SIZE > MEDIUM (normal).

Note: Internet Explorer font settings effect Outlook Express too.
