How to enlarge pribnt on screen

There are a couple of ways you could do this.

Depends on what program you are using, often just pressing the "command" key then the "+" key will 'zoom' the view, then use "command" + "-" to zoom out... this just zooms in on the file you have open at the time.

You can use the 'Zoom' function in System Preferences -> Accessibility, Zoom. This will 'zoom' on where the cursor is currently located to enlarge just an area on the screen.

If you want to change the whole screen, you could change the display resolution. Go to System Preferences -> Displays. Depending on your monitor, you can change the resolution to a lower number which will make everything 'bigger' on the screen.

Make screen bigger

To zoom in on a website in your favorite browser, making the website appear bigger, follow these steps:

Using the keyboard and a mouse with a scroll wheel:
  • Hold down the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard and roll the mouse wheel up to zoom in, or down to zoom out.
Using only the keyboard:
  • Hold down the "Ctrl" key and press the "+" key to zoom in, or the "-" key to zoom out.
To make the browser full-screen, taking up the whole screen on your computer, press the "F11" key. Press the "F11" key again to exit full-screen mode.

I hope that helps you!

    The letters on the facebook login page are huge how do i get back to regular size letters

    My name is Mace and I'm here to help.

    The fonts or letters or the whole page you may have accidentally zoom in. It is very simple to return the page to its regular size.
    Press and hold down the CTRL button in your keyboard while pressing a few times the the minus ( - ) sign in the number pads. Pressing the plus ( + ) sign will make your page bigger.

    You can also try
    Press and hold down CTRL button while you scroll forward or backward the wheel in your mouse to make it bigger or smaller.

    Hope this answer will help you.

    Cant figure out how to get it off the little blue symbols

    Either the "blue" coloured 'FN' is _stuck_ in the "down" position, or you have accidentally activated the "Sticky Keys" Windows "accessibility" tool.

    With "Sticky Keys", you press keys just _one_ at a time, e.g., CTRL then ALT then DELETE instead of pressing multiple keys (SHIFT and '8') at the same time.

    Restart, in order to turn-off "Sticky Keys".

    Or, "exercise" the 'FN' key, until it "unsticks" itself.

    My display is sooo big that i can't really see the whole page. I held down the command button while rolling the ball on my mouse and my screen got bigger and now I can't get it back to normal.

    Do the same but roll the ball the other way.
    Alternatively, open system preferences, go to universal access and turn Zoom off. Or on the keyboard press "Alt Command -" all at the ame time.

    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.
