Evidently I've hit a button which has increased the font on my PC. It is very large and not much fits on the screen. Can you tell me what to do?

Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Hold down the 'CTRL' key and then press the '-' (minus /hyphen) key. The text size will decrease each time you press the minus key with CTRL held down. If you adjust too far and the text size becomes too small, you can enlarge it again by holding down the CTRL key and pressing the '+' key.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

If you are on a windows PC and on the Facebook screen you can use a keyboard shortcut to increase the font size for the page. The keyboard shortcut is to press the Ctrl key and the + key on your keyboard simultaneously until the font increases to the desired size. If the font becomes too large, the Ctrl key and the - key will shrink the text.

Increase font size


Print is so small? Are you talking about on a piece of paper you printed out that it is small? If so what program did you use to print it? If it's a document in something like Microsoft Word, you just highlight the text and increase the Font Size.

If you are talking about the fonts on the screen and webpages being small you can Right Click on an open space on the desktop and select Properties to get the Display to open. Or you can click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open the display then select the Appearance tab and change the Font Size. It can be Normal, Large or Extra Large.

Increase my font size


You did not specify your operating system.
For Windows XP
Go into your Control Panel by first clicking on the Start Button.
Then click on the Control Panel icon located in the right column of the Start Menu.
If your Start Menu is set to the Classic View, then begin by clicking on the Start Button.
Then click on Settings, then click on the Control Panel icon to open up the Control Panel.
Now, Double click on the Display icon to open up the Display Properties Window.
Then click on the Appearance tab at the top of the screen.
At the bottom left side of the screen you will see an area to change the Font Size:
Use your mouse to switch between normal, large and extra large according to your preference.
Then click on the OK button to save your changes and exit Display Properties window.
Windows XP will immediately adjust to your new Font Size without restarting your system.
Then close the Control Panel to return back to your Windows Session.

My writing is so small i can't read any thing on my computer because of this i can't read anthing you write back so can someone call me at 901-283-0239


You can increase the size of text by pressing control + or - buttons press control button first. Also there is zoom in the tools section and also you can increase the size of text in the control panel or the web page under tools sections of most browsers. If we new the browser or what you text is small in or even if it was small every where you can change the resolution size of your Windows. Win 7 you can incease text by going to control panel click on display once there go to where it says increase your text size. Not sure what your operating system is either. So assuming it is Win 7 I hope that this assists you. John

Text too wide for screen


If you want to increase the font size of the text on the page and you're using a scroll wheel mouse, here's a handy little trick- hold down the Control button while rolling the scroll wheel up or down. This will increase/decrease the size of the text on the screen but won't affect the graphics.
