Look for a command called Zoom or Text Zoom and change it back to 100%
Or hold down Control button (command on a Mac) and scroll up and down with the mouse wheel to change the Zoom level

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.

How to change text size to be larger


This depends upon what program you are running.

If you mean the Internet, you can change the view settings on most browsers by zooming in (go to "View" in your toolbar).

If it's a Microsoft application like "Word" or "Excel", you can increase the font size or the magnification of the document - again, from the toolbar.

My writing is so small i can't read any thing on my computer because of this i can't read anthing you write back so can someone call me at 901-283-0239


You can increase the size of text by pressing control + or - buttons press control button first. Also there is zoom in the tools section and also you can increase the size of text in the control panel or the web page under tools sections of most browsers. If we new the browser or what you text is small in or even if it was small every where you can change the resolution size of your Windows. Win 7 you can incease text by going to control panel click on display once there go to where it says increase your text size. Not sure what your operating system is either. So assuming it is Win 7 I hope that this assists you. John

Windows XP text size is too small. How do I make it largerr?


Click on your Desktop with the right mouse button and select Properties from the Shortcut menu that appears. In the Properties window, click on the Appearance tab. At the bottom of the Appearance tab you will see "Font size:" click on that drop-down menu and you can select Normal, Large Fonts, or Extra-Large Fonts. This is how you change the size of the text that is specific to Windows.
To change the size of the text in Internet Explorer, open up Internet Explorer and find the View menu (it should be near the top left of the screen) click on View and in the menu that pops down, hover your mouse over Text Size so the menu will pop out to the right, here you can select Smallest, Smaller, Normal, Large, Larger, and Largest.
If you would like to increase the size of everything in Internet Explorer, you can hover over Zoom in the View pop down menu and change how much you are zoomed in, this will increase everything for you!

I hope this helps! If not, please comment back and let us know!

How to change print size


The printer prints whatever it's told to by the computer. Your printer really doesn't control the fonts.

When you are printing stuff from the internet (web pages, email, etc.) the reason for the small print is that it is related to the size of the monitor and it's viewing setup (the higher the screen resolution, the smaller the print will be when printing it out even though it looks good on the monitor).

One way you can make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet Explorer), click on "View," then "Text Size" then select a size like "Larger" or "Largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to.)

Another method is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "File" then "Print Preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "Shrink To Fit" in it. Click the arrow for a drop down list and choose something probably above 90% or more (maybe 100 or 125%) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out.

The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like Word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.

Want to make my text size larger


In the "basic text" box are 2 A's, a large one with an up arrow to make the text larger, and a small one with a down arrow to make the text smaller. Just click on the large A until you get the size you want.

Yahoo web page and email are so small I cannot read them even with a magnifying glass. Second time this happened. What is the problem?


When on line go up to the 'view' lable close to the to of the screen click on 'text size'. Select a setting from Largest, Larger, Medium, Smaller, and Smallest. Close and go off-line. Go back on-line and recover an e-mail to check if that is large enough.
