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.

Can I change the text size on the display on a VTech DS6771-3


Can you use the Ctrl and + keys to grow your text? I can make my screen content bigger this way and grow text while reading this way. On your keyboard, hold down your Ctrl key while pressing the + key. Good Luck!

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.

The text size on Firefox is so minute I can hardly read it. If I fill in a form it becomes so small it is illegible. Do not have this problem on others, ie Google. Please help.


To reset the text size, press ctrl-0 (cmd-0 on a Mac). To temporarily increase text size, press ctrl-+. To permanently set text size, go into your preferences/options window, content tab, and look for the default font option.

Text size of message has increased


Check at the back if you have a rotating camera button and rotate it to its normal size. Or go to message settings and check in format text, change to small or medium size.

Cannot view Webpage


I guess you can simply increase the size of the text.....it will proberbly offset the rest of the web page but you can read it at least.

What browser are you using?

For firefox and internet explorer do this:
Click on 'view' on the toolbar at the top of the screen. Then click 'text size' for a choice of different sizes.

Did this help at all?
