Print too small


If you are using something like a BROWSER (IE, Chrome, etc) on the keyboard hold down CTRL and press ONCE the + button. Does this repeatedly until the font size is larger.

Please note this will NOT increase font on GRAPHIC text as those are set graphics and do not zoom.

For windows computers go to CONTROL PANEL and select APPEARANCE AND PERSONALIZATION

From there under DISPLAY select "Make Text and Other Items Larger or Smaller" Play with the settings within there until you get the font large enough for you to see.

The text size on my computer is too small. I can't figure out how to increase it. Please help


1. Right-click the Desktop and select Properties.
2. Save the current screen settings so if you're unhappy with the results, you can back the changes out. Select the Themes tab, click Save As, and enter the name Original Display Settings. Click OK.
3. Select the Appearance tab, change the Font Size drop-down to Large Fonts, and click Apply to view the new text size. The text in the dialog won't change but the desktop and Start menu will. You can also try the Extra Large Fonts setting.
4. You can also click Advanced, select individual elements of the Windows display, and change their sizes, although this is more difficult to do and the results are less rewarding.
5. If want to back out all of the changes you made, go back to the Themes tab, open the Theme drop-down, select the entry that says Original Display Settings Without "(Modified)", and clickOK.

How to enlarge fonts on my e-mails -they have


Most email clients have a text zoom feature. This is also most likely the cause of your fonts "becoming small".
Usually you can find the option under View -> Text-Size when looking at an email.
You can also usually hold down CTRL on your keyboard and move the wheel on the mouse up or down till you get the right size.
The actual settings depend largely on what email client you are using though, so if my suggestions do not work then specify what email program you are using - e.g. Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express or Thunderbird.
