If you use Mozilla Firefox for your web browser (click here to go to the Mozilla site) when you print you can zoom in and out if you go to file > page setup the screen below will come up just un click shrink to fit page and enter in a zoom scale (larger makes your text lager & smaller makes your text smaller)

also with Mozilla you can zoom in and out on the page you are viewing by holding down 'ctrl' on your keyboard and clicking the + key to zoom in and the - key to zoom out.

i hope this has been helpful.

How do I change the print to larger as print has gone very small

Depending upon what progra you are using, you can usually click on VIEW, then select ZOOM. Zoom in or out until you find the text size you need to use.

If you want to change ALL of Windows' text sizes, right-click somewhere on the desktop and select PERSONALIZE. Click, DISPLAY, then SET CUSTOM TEXT SIZE (DPI). Increase the percentage until you find a comfortable size to work with. You will perhaps need to reboot your computer after changing the text size.

How do I change the text size in my printer

Have you tried changing the text in the document you are printing? Maybe you have to go to the print portion of your program and change it in the program before you print?

I just want to be able to enlarge my print size

  • 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 size (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 size

  • Log on to your computer and open the document you want to print. Click on the "Print Preview" button on the toolbar.
  • 2 Click on the "File" menu and choose "Print Preview" from the drop-down list if the "Print Preview" button is not available. The "Print Preview" function will show you exactly what the finished print will look like.
  • 3 Click the "Close" button to close the Print Preview window, then highlight the entire document and click on the "Format" menu. Choose "Font" from the drop-down list and change the font.
  • 4 Click the "Print Preview" button again to see the finished print. Continue to adjust the font size until the print looks good

    How do I enlarge a page so I can read it? When printing something from the internet, how do I enlarge the print? I have printed a pattern and cannot read it.

    There's no option to enlarge the font or text of what you are printing from the Internet. What you need to do is to copy the page that you would like to print and then paste it in a Word document.

    From the Word document, there's an option for you to change the font size and color.

    Have a great day!

If you don's see "page" click on menu bar, it should open up the options available, there. It's right next to tools. that should do it. Also if you want larger text when viewing websites, click on View, and you can adjust the text the way you want it to look.
