How do I reset my gmail page so all information is on the screen. Right now I have to shrink everything everything from left to right on the page. It is difficult to read. Please help. Thanks. Deb


Is this occuring with just one email, or the whole email page (eg. inbox page)? 1st, try clicking on the "box" at the upper RH corner of the web browser window. If you see a "double box", then the browser window is set correctly.

If its an email that doesn't show all the text without scrolling, its likely someone has sent you an email where the text was loaded without formatting, and it never returns to next line... If you close that email, the rest of the email should be ok...

The last thing to check is your browser size... if you hold down your CNTL ket, and use your "-" sign, the text in the browser window will get smaller. Conversely, if you hold down the CNTL key, anf hit the "+" key, the text will increase in size.....

How to change text size in Internet Explorer


Some web sites use larger text while others use small, hard-to-read text. To change the size of text that appears on a web page in Internet Explorer, follow one of the two procedures below.<br /> <br /> <b>To change text size:</b><br /> <br /> To make the text that is displayed in your web browser larger or smaller, click View on Internet Explorer's menu bar. From the drop-down menu, select Text Size. The five choices for text size will appear: Largest, Larger, Medium, Smaller, and Smallest. Medium is selected by default, but you can choose the size that you want. To change to a different size, just go back to the View menu and choose a new size.<br /> <br /> Internet Explorer saves the selection that you make. If you load a new web page, or close and reopen your browser, the text size will remain at the level that you've chosen, until you choose differently.<br /> <br /> <b>To zoom:</b><br /> <br /> Another way to alter text size is to use the Zoom feature. Zoom increases or decreases text size, but it will also make everything else on the page (such as graphics) larger or smaller as well. Zoom options can be found under the View menu, next to Zoom. You can choose a preset percentage to zoom, or enter a custom value, or just go larger or smaller by stepped increments.<br /> <br /> The nice thing about zoom is that it has keyboard shortcuts associated with it, unlike the Text Size feature. By pressing [CTRL][+] you can zoom in (make everything appear larger) and [CTRL][-] will zoom out. If you want to reset the zoom value back to the standard view, press [CTRL][0]. These shortcuts will affect text size, but only in proportion with everything else on the page.<br /> <br /> Some web sites (such as Yahoo) are designed so that the Text Size feature won't override the text size specified in the site's code. For sites like these, you can use the Zoom feature to enlarge or reduce text size.

Gmail problems small fonts to small


Reduce / Increase Text Size on My Gmail

Between the message list, search bar, labels and chat window, GMail's web interface displays a lot of information.

If your web browser is displaying all of these items in a large font, they may not fit comfortably on your screen.

Fortunately, you can easily change your web browser's text size on Gmail to ensure that all of the components fit.

Alternatively, you can use a special GMail Labs feature to change the default text size for all of the emails that you compose.

Navigate to your GMail inbox in your web browser.


Hold the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard and press the "-" key. Your web browser will shrink all of the text on the current web page.

You can repeat this step to shrink the text even more.

Hold "Ctrl" and press "+" to increase the text size if you shrink it too much.
Gmail Default Font

Navigate to your GMail inbox and click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen.
Select "Labs" from the drop-down menu.
Scroll down to "Default Text Styling" and click "Enable."
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes."
Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen and select "Mail Settings." Click the "TT" icon in the "Default Text Style" section. Select "Small."

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes." Your new email messages will automatically use GMail's small text size.

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.

Photoshop cs4 serial


What version of Windows are you using? Changing the font sizes for one specific application would be difficult, though it is possible to do this for the entire operating system relatively easily. I know everything between Windows XP and Windows 8 allows you to change your DPI settings, which would increase the size of buttons and text system-wide. However, some versions of Windows let you specify your preferred text size in the Accessibility section of the Windows Control Panel.

I wauld like to make the lettering larger and add this to my toolbar.The lettering is so small i am getting eye strain!!!


If you mean you want to see the text in your internet browser larger, then in Internet Explorer explorer left-click 'View' (in toolbar next to 'Edit') and then slide down to text size and select larger or largest. In Firefox, select Tools, then Options, then Conten (third tab on top), then change the font size by selecting a larger number from the drop-down menu that currently should be shoung a number across from the font type (like Times New Roman). Sorry I can't increase the size of this text for you to read this solution.

P.S. Both I.E and Firefox have zoom functions under 'View' to temporarily zoom in or out on text and images.

The text size on my e-mail page and other pages has reduced and is difficult to read. How do I increase the font size?


Go to control panel; display where you can change the text size.
Also changing the resolution to say 800x600 will make the text larger.

How do I increase the text size on incoming e-mail or stuff I want to print. larry


The easiest way to increase the text size on screen of your e-mails and browser contents is to simply hold the "Ctrl" key and scroll up with your mouse to zoom in and scroll down with your mouse to zoom out. If you don't have a scrolling mouse, hold the "Ctrl" key while pressing the "+" and "-" sign to adjust the text size.

If you want to increase the size of the font on documents you are printing from web-sites, you have to look for the "Printer Friendly" button, or the "Print" button on the actual web-page. The developers of the article you are seeking to print have to manually do this themselves.

If it's in a text document or something similar, you can highlight all of the text at once by pressing "Ctrl+A" (The control key and the A button, not the plus button) and increasing the font size in the program you are using.

Two things you can try!

1.From your Browser you can change text size in the browser.
I am using Internet Explorer for this example
Click on View from the top tool bar, Select Text Size.. you can increase and decrease the text size of a web page.

2.Before you print check Print Preview and Increse the page size.
My Browser defualt to Shrink to Fit,
I can change that to 120% and it will print the page very large.

Most programs in Windows will offer a Print Preivew
there you can make adjustments, and this can also be accomplished with Page Set Up..
