Hello,
To increase/decrease the font size,
1. Right click on the desk top screen (or double click on control panel, then choose personalize icon)
2. Under "Task" double click " adjust font size (dpi)" then click "continue".
3. Click "larger dpi" or "custom dpi" box. Choosing custom setting should indicate 100%.

To increase font size, type a percent greater than 100 (ie. 105%) or to decrease size, use a percent less than 100 (ie. 95%).
4. Click "ok". You may receive a message to restart computer for change to take effect.
5. Restart computer. Repeat process until you are happy with the results.

How do I reduce the size of text on the computer?


If that change relates to the size of text in the browser, you might want to press [CTRL][-] (Control minus) to reduce it or [CTRL][+] to increase it.
If on the other hand, you are concerned with the size of the text in other windows, you will have to open the Graphic Propertires and adjust the display parameters (font size to default).

You can make the text and other items, such as icons, on your screen easier to see by making them larger. You can do this without changing the screen resolution of your monitor or laptop screen. This allows you to increase or decrease the size of text and other items on your screen while keeping your monitor or laptop set to its optimal resolution.

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.

Our Acer laptop will not show a whole screen of some websites. The monitor is too small. Is there a way we can increase this?


You can increase the screen resolution, however it will make the text and pictures smaller, but more will fit on the page..

Right click the background of your desktop, click personalize, click display settings, and on resolution increase the size one click at a time till it looks how you want it to look..

Or another way is to press control and the minus sign while your logged onto the web page itself your trying to view.
