How do i make text message bigger or bolder


I couldn't find a specific setting for that, but I can think of a kind of workaround, but only If you you have updated your device to (or if it already came with) Froyo (Android 2.2), since Eclair (2.1) lacks it. Anyway, go to 'Menu > Settings > Accessibility', and tick both 'Accessibility' (this one you can leave ticked for good) and 'Zoom mode' (for this one you'll get a confirmation popup screen) checkboxes. A magnifying square will appear. Untick this setting to remove it. With it activated, you can move it around by tapping, holding and dragging on any of the 4 white stripes on its edges. You can also set the magnification level, by tapping on '-' or '+'. If you don't want to keep activating and deactivating it whenever you need it, you can leave it partially hidden, by dragging it to one of the screen's corners which would bother you least..

Hope you are able to sort your problems out soon.

Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.

Regards, Carlos

Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 Magnification Issue


Normal 0 Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons. In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right Side Button and off it goes. You can change any of the button settings by clicking on the drop down.
Hope this helps. Bud

Screen magnified and will not unlock

ZoomMany iPhone applications let you zoom in and out specific elements. For example, you can double-tap or use the pinch gesture to expand webpage columns in Safari. Zoom is a special accessibility feature that lets you magnify the entire screen of any application you’re using to help you see what’s on the display.
Turn Zoom on or off: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility > Zoom and tap the Zoom On/Off switch.
NOTE: You cannot use VoiceOver and Zoom at the same time.
Zoom in or out: Double-tap the screen with three fingers. By default, the screen is magnified by 200 percent. If you manually change the magnification (by using the tap-and-drag gesture, described below), iPhone automatically returns to that magnification when you zoom in by double-tapping with three fingers.
Increase magnification: With three fingers, tap and drag toward the top of the screen (to increase magnification) or toward the bottom of the screen (to decrease magnification). The tap-and-drag gesture is similar to a double-tap, except you don’t lift your fingers on the second tap—instead, drag your fingers on the screen. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger.
For best results using three-finger gestures, relax and let your fingers touch the screen naturally.
Move around the screen: When zoomed in, drag or flick the screen with three fingers. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger so that you can see more of the screen. Hold a single finger near the edge of the display to pan to that side of the screen image. Move your finger closer to the edge to pan more quickly. When you open a new screen, Zoom always goes to the top-middle of the screen.

I Need Magnification I have low vision


You need the magnifier from the Accessibility tools. On Windows XP this can be found in Start Menu -> Accessories -> Accessibility -> Magnifier (if it's not installed, go to Control panel -> Add/remove -> Add Windows Components and install it)

On Windows Vista it's in All Programs -> Accessories -> Ease of Access -> Magnifier.

Monitor is enlarged, wont return to normal size


Hi, three possible things. 1) You have activated the magnifier. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Accessibility, Magnifier - deactivate, should be a small window bottom left of the desktop. or 2) Your screen resolution somehow changed. Right click on any clear part of the desktop, go to properties, Settings Tab. Adjust screen resolution to desired setting then click Apply/OK. or 3)You are in Safemode. Restart and if same large icons etc, do # 2. Hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post how things turn up. Regards
