If you want to make font and text larger in a Word document, just look at the taskbar and click font pull-down window (usually the default is Times Roman) and pick whatever font you want, then click the pull-down window (usually the default is 12) and pick a larger size.
Or you need to make a display adjustment. Click Start, Click Control Panel, Click Personalization, click Display Settings, choose Resolution up or down which will adjust icon and font size on your computer.
Or click start, Control Panel, Personalization then:

  • In the left pane, click Adjust font size (DPI). If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  • In the DPI Scaling dialog box, do one of the following:

    • To increase the size of text and other items on the screen, click Larger scale (120 DPI)-make text more readable, and then click OK.

    • To decrease the size of text and other items on the screen, click Default scale (96 DPI)-fit more information, and then click OK.

    To see the changes, close all of your programs, and then restart Windows.

    Enlarge text size

    Create Menu tab right click in the top of screen (toolbar) you will see a number of toolbar options select the menu bar
    This will add to your screen toolbar File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help select the View from the drop down list will be a Zoom with percentages % and text sizes largest to smallest and Full screen option
    Increase the Font Size in Email
    Email font size is easily controlled while composing messages, but the messages you receive have been sized by the sender.
    Some contacts may be perfectly comfortable writing in size 8, but such text can be a strain on the eyes, even with good reading glasses.
    The printed hard copies of email messages with small text are even more difficult to read.
    There are a few ways to quickly change font size for ease of reading and better quality print-outs.

    Open an email message with particularly small text. Increase the email font size of the text using step 2, 3 or 4.
    Click on the "View" selection from the menu bar.
    Roll the mouse pointer over the "Zoom" choice.
    Click on one of the choices that is greater than 100 percent.
    Click "View" and cover "Zoom" to make a larger choice if the first choice does not increase the text size sufficiently.

    Click the "View" option on the menu bar. Roll the cursor over the "Text Size" selection.
    Choose one of the options that will increase the text size.
    For instance, if the current size marked with the dot is "Medium," then click "Larger" or "Largest" to make the print appear bigger.

    Use a mouse with a wheel to increase the email font size.
    Press and hold the "Ctrl" key while rolling the wheel on the mouse.
    The text will shrink as you roll in one direction, and grow bigger as you roll in the other.

    Change font size before printing.
    Click the "File" option on the menu bar.
    Click "Print Preview."
    Click the "Size" drop down which may display "100%," or "Shrink to fit."
    Select a choice greater than 100 percent to increase text size.
    Click the "Print" button to view the results on a hard copy.

    When I reply to an e-mail on OUtlook 2010, the font size is very small - and I cannot read the original or what I am typing. Any ideas on how to restore the normal size

    Having trouble seeing that small default font of Microsoft Outlook emails? There are three ways of making Outlook email text bigger.
    The first includes increasing the text size of the outgoing email messages.
    The second includes increasing the text size of messages that are replied to or forwarded.
    The last includes making all the text of incoming emails larger as well.

    Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
    Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.
    Find the Personal Stationary tab, then find and click the Font button located under the New Mail Messages heading.
    On the Font tab that appears, there will be a variety of options including changing the type of font, style, size and color.

    Find the drop-down menu that is under the Size heading and select a bigger number.
    Click OK and the new setting will take place the next time a message is composed.

    Replies or Forwarded Mail
    Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
    Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.

    Find the Personal Stationary tab, then click the Font button that is located under the Replying or Forwarding Messages heading.
    Find the drop-down menu that is under the Size heading and select a bigger number.
    Click OK and the new settings will take place the next time a message is replied to or forwarded.

    Incoming Email Messages
    Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
    Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.

    Look for the Display Font heading on the Personal Stationary tab and increase the size the size of the font by selecting a larger number.
    This will increase the text size for all plain text incoming email.
    However, it will not increase the text size of incoming HTML emails.

    Set the option to read all incoming email as plain text if it is necessary to increase the text size of all incoming emails.
    To do this, go to Tools, then click on Options, then look for the button that says Email Options and click Read all Standard Mail as Plain Text.

    Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

    How to increase text size when running laptop and % icon does not show in lower right right hand corner of screen

    To change the text size you will need to right click on a blank part of the screen/desktop so you get display properties or click start then settings then control panel then display. When you get that window up you can click on the appearance tab along the top. In this window along the lower left is font size. You can increase the size of the font by clicking on the box then selecting the size you want. This will change the size of the font as soon as you click on apply. This only changes menu text sizes.

    To change everything overall you want to click on the settings tab then the advanced button lower right. It should come up to the window we want but if not it is under the general tab. Under DPI settings (sometimes will show as text size or font size but all are the same setting) the default is set to 96 try selecting the 120 size. This will increase the size of the text used. You can also select custom and enter any number. You will probably have to reboot the computer after changing this unless you have it in the section below to apply without restarting. Hit apply and reboot if required and your text will now all be bigger. If the text is too much bigger than stock some programs or windows may not look right or the text is not aligned. Thats typical if the text is too big or the window it is in is a fixed size and can't change. If this happen you can try the custom setting to find a bigger size that won't cause problems.

    You can also use the visually impaired utilities one of which is a magnifier. That just enlarges an area around the mouse so it isn't quite as easy for daily use.

    I'm stumped on the % icon thing. What normally is there is the clock. Unless this is a icon that shows battery charge or something like that? You can usually get these to display again by starting the utility from the start menu - all programs and then look for a setting that says display on toolbar.
