One way to adjust/set the default size (to get a larger font size) is through your Control Panel - Display - Settings window, where you can select a larger font.
If you are using a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer), there is way to increase (or decrease) the font size (displayed on the screen) using the "magnification" option at the bottom right corner of the screen. Simply click on the "magnifying glass" and increase/decrease the value, e.g. to 150% .

Hi. For Windows XP, right-click on the desktop and select Display. When the Display dialog box opens click on the Advanced button. When the Advanced settings open select the General tab (normally selected by default) and in the DPI setting box change this to a larger setting.

You may need to experiment before you find a suitable settings

For Windows 7 the procedure is slightly different. Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left corner of the Personalize screen there should be a Display option. click on the Display option and select one of the available DPI settings or select Set custom text size (DPI) from the left side of the screen and enter a custom size.

Like with XP, you might need to experiment to find the correct setting.

Cheers.

SOURCE: Toshiba Laptop spontaneous font size change

Disable the dreadful "pinch-zoom" of the Snyaptics touch pad.
How it is supposed to be used is at
http://www.synaptics.com/solutions/technology/gestures/touchpad . However, I tried these "gestures" and none of it worked on my touchpad.

On Windows7, one can disable this poor excuse for a feature by going to Control Panel->Hardware and sound->Devices and printers->Mouse->Device Settings->Settings [button half-way down, on the right]->pinch zoom. Then uncheck "enable pinch zoom".

How to make font size larger


On a WIN7 or 8 PC, right click on desktop, left click Screen Resolution and lower the resolution to make everything larger. If you just want the fonts larger, go into Control Panel, Display & change the font size. Both methods don't always give you the desired visual results, but there is no harm in trying each. Good Luck

How do I make my font size larger


under the heading you can see the font name and a number next to it is the font size that you can change to make it larger before you type. If you only have to make a word or paragraph larger then you need to highlight it then change the font size.

How do I enlarge font especially on e mails


To change the size of text in your email messages:
  1. Click the "Mail Options" link in the upper-right corner of the page.
  2. Click the "General Preferences" link.
  3. Next to "Font Size," select your preferred font size. "Smaller" will make the font of messages one size smaller than your browser's default setting; "larger" will make the font one size larger.
  4. Once you have chosen a new font size, click the "Save" button to activate your new settings.
  5. Yahoo will confirm the changes by displaying, "Your changes have been recorded."
Please note that the above steps will affect only the text of your email messages, and only those messages displayed in plain text (the fonts of HTML messages will not be affected).
To change the font size of all of the text in the Yahoo interface, you must change the default font size of your browser.
Internet Explorer users:
  1. In the View menu, choose "Text Size."
  2. From the menu that appears, select your desired font size.
  3. Your selection will take effect immediately.
Netscape users:
  1. From the Edit menu, choose "Preferences." This will open up another window.
  2. Click on the "+" symbol to the left of "Appearance." Note: Netscape 6.0 users will see a little triangular arrow.
  3. Select "Fonts."
  4. Netscape will display your current font settings. Make all desired changes and click "OK."
  5. Your selection will take effect immediately.
To change the font size of other browsers, please refer to your browser's help files.

I need to make the font size LARGER.


To print a larger font size, you need to change the size of the text in the document.
For example if this document is a WORD document then when the document is opened in WORD you select your text and then click on the Font size and change it to a larger size.
If it is a new word document, you can set the font size before you start typing.
Don't forget to save the changes in your document.

Fonts and sizes are typically controlled by the application you are using. Are you sure you are increasing the font size? I've had some users confused by the zoom feature which is more like a magnifying lens. It just makes thing larger for viewing purposes and does not affect the print size. To change the actual font size of a document already created you would first highlight the text in the document. In Word (other applications are similar) you would then select Format from the main menu bar, then select Font. In the next box that appears you would click on the Font tab, and then in the Size field select a larger font size. After that click on OK and you should see your font size change. Let us know if that was your problem or not.
