    Is the font on your screen too small, as well as the printout?

    What program(s) are you printing from (such as Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, etc?

How do I change the font size on my canon 860 printer?


There is no font size on any printer. The printer only prints what you send to it. Change the font in the doument you are printing before you send it to the printer.

Printing envelopes from stamps.com from the MP tray on a Canon Imageclass 4350d - after printing I get a message asking "use current size". If I say yes it prints again, if I say no it prints again.


This can likely be solved with one of the following solutions.  If these do not work, please feel free to contact me at social(at)stamps.com. Thanks! This can likely be solved using one of the following solutions. If these do not work, please feel free to contact me at social(at)stamps.com.

How do you adjust Fontsize on a Lexmark X5270 printer? In printing out emails the font size is VERY tiny I would like to have a larger font to make reading easier.


Actually, you can change the font size through the application you're using to make your emails. Try to explore the application settings before printing your emails. The Lexmark printer nor the printer software is not capable of changing the font size of your documents on your computer.

The font size is very small on the my printed doc. and I want to increase the font size


Fonts and font sizes are managed within the program you are using, the actual font files, and your operating system (typically Windows). This is especially true with some languages on the internet - you will need Language Packs from the program manufacturer to successfully display the characters of some languages.
If the printer works with other fonts and other programs just fine, but is having a problem with one specific font or program, then you will need to contact the manufacturer of the font (Or Microsoft, if it is a font that came with Windows), or the program manufacturer, for more assistance. The printer only prints what is sent to it, if other programs work fine, then the printer, its driver, and the related hardware are fine. Any printer does also not include fonts in the installation of the printer driver, so reinstalling the printer driver will not replace or solve font problems. If the printer is not working from multiple programs, let us know so we can troubleshoot this issue. Otherwise, you will need to contact your program manufacturer for information on how to manage fonts or the manufacturer of your specific font.

Font size is controlled by the source program, not the printer unless it is printing info stored in the printer and this can be accessed even without the printer communicating with a computer.

You didn't mention what it was you were trying to print, such as MicroSoft word, Wordpad, Notepad, from your screen?
Are you using a PC or Mac?
These things are necessary for us to help you.

Each of those sources have settings that can influence print size.
Look for 'View' or 'Font size' in the menu of whatever your source is and set it to a level you want to see.

If you are doing a screen printout, setting the font size will influence both screen and print sizes.
