There are a couple of things you can do. One is, if you cilck on your tools icon, upper right of screen, a window will drop down. In this window, scroll down to "zoom" and another window will open. It should highlight what your current zoom is and, you should be able to increase or decrease you font..You can go large or small as much as you want. The other way is to increse your DPI. Click "start", then find "control panel" and click on to open. In your list find "personalization". right click on and open. On the top left of window you will see"adjust font size(DPI). Click on that. A window will open and you will see "large scale" check the box next to it and click on apply. You have to restart for it to take effect. You can go bigger by clicking on "custom DPI. You can mix you zoom with this too.

Ok, you didn't specify what you were running so I will assume Windows.
In XP: Right Click on the Desktop, then properties. In that window click the Settings tab. Click advanced (button close to the bottom on the right) In the general tab You can change the DPI setting. This will make thinks appear larger without compromising a good resolution.
In Vista: Click Start, Control Panel when that window opens type in the search box in the upper right ride of the window Adjust Font Size It will give you an icon for Personalization Adjust Font Size (dpi) There you can do as stated in the XP section.
In Windows 7 Right Click on the desktop and click Personalize On the bottom left there is a link for Display, click that. In the next window you have your DPI settings.

All OS's (that I know of) require a reboot after this change.

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

Common Projection TV Problems and Fixes


In this article we will will outline some of the most common projection TV problems, fixes, pros and cons, and average lifespan.
Average Lifespan: 7-20 YearsPros: Large screen size and excellent picture quality. Some model support HD. Very reliable when they are cared for.
Cons: Heavier and bulkier than the newer plasma or LCD sets so if you live in a cardboard box it may take up a bit more room.
Common Problems/Fixes
Common Problem #1 - Convergence: One the most common problems that you will run into eventually is a convergence failure. This is when the TV colors do not align anymore and the TV will look 3D, warped or distorted. This is a very common problem and a fairly simple DIY fix. Parts to repair this can be found over the internet from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Below are a few photos of a typical convergence problem and a link to a video on YouTube with more details.
utube.png You-Tube video "9oI1Nzq7CR8" placeholder (do not delete) utube.png

Notice how the image looks 3D...this is a classic example of a convergence failure...it may also look warped or have a wave look. But the wave will not fluctuate.

Common Problem #2 - Dull or Dark Video
The second most common problem we see on projection TV sets is whats known as the dull video issue. This is commonly caused by discolored cooling fluid in the lenses. Over many years - usually around 5-7 years - the fluid will discolor and cause the video to wash out or look dull. Changing the CRT fluid out every 7-10 years will restore the image clarity back to factory new conditions. You will actually be amazed at how sharp and clear the video looks once a fluid repair has been done.
Here is a before and after photo notice how it looks washed out. In some cases the images will look like they have halos around them or the screen will have a reddish tint. Bottom line - if your projection TV has never had the lens fluid replaced the video is not as sharp as it can be. You can get fluid kits from the same sites mentioned above. Doing this repair yourself or through a shop will make the video look amazing.

Common Problem #3 - Dead set with no videoIn these cases there can be more than one common issue depending on the TV brand and model. But to make things simple if the TV has no audio or video and its making a constant chirping sound the issue is caused by a short in the convergence. The fix is to do a convergence repair. If however its not chirping constantly it can be one of many issue from failed capacitors, diodes, flybacks, etc.

Change to larger font on aol e-mail


AOL Mail is an email service provided to the customers of American Online as well as Web users.

When you print an email using AOL Mail software, you may notice that the font size either appears too small or too large.


AOL Mail gives you the flexibility to adjust the font size and thus, the size of the print.

Note that these instructions apply to AOL 9.0 or higher.


If you have an old edition, follow instructions from the link specified under Resources.

Launch your AOL Mail software from the Start menu or desktop shortcut.


Log in using your AOL screen name and password.


Click "Settings" on the top bar.


Click "Font and Text."


Click the font type drop-down menu to choose either a larger or smaller font type than the current one.


Click the font size drop-down menu to choose either a larger or smaller font size based on your preference.


Click "Save."

Hope this helps

Font to small


You have two things going on. You can set the font size to your specs, but if for some reason you change the resolution of the screen, your fonts will look really small.
My advice--check your screen resolution. If it's OK, go in and set the fonts to large.
