Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
DPI setting does not affect "everything", least not on Windows XP up to SP3. Some programs just ignore it, leaving some small non-scaleable text areas to struggle on with (e.g. HTML messages in Outlook and Outlook Express). Is the only proper fix to change apps, e.g. Thunderbird and Firefox...?
Please tell me how I can enlarge my Text. Was able to the other day, but afgter downloading files that I was told gto download, when I went to VIEW,, where I usually enlarged my text, there was no work showing that said; as always; enlarge text. Could not do it at all.
What do I do now to get the VIEW column as it was orginially!
I await your reply and Thank You for whatgever help you can give me.
I am subscribed to ''ask Leo''..but never asked this question. I would like you to e-mail me the answer if possible.I can make my fonts bigger to write a letter, and it also comes in an e-mail answer the way I set it. What I can't change is eg: the game free cell....I can't make it bigger ..it's so small to see the cards..same with any writing besides e-mail..is not ok.. Can you understand what I'm trying to explain? Thanks...Lorrie
Great !! I hit some wrong buttons yesterday and the text wasn't fitting in my screen anymore...small fonts and the result was a headache, i have been searching in my PC for over an hour untill i gave up. AFterwards i just googled the probelm and i found the answer on your page CTRL +...that simple life can be ;-) thx a zillion
If you have a mouse that has the scroller thing in the middle, you can hold down ctrl, and then use the scroller thing to zoom in and out.
This article was somewhat helpful to me; I tried the Custom setting and increased it from Large (125%) to 150%. But what I really wanted to find is if it's possible to tell webpages that use serif fonts (like Times New Roman) that I really want them to use sans-serif fonts (like Arial). I find serif fonts much harder to read even when I increase the font size dramatically.
BTW, I use Firefox.
You can get an add on for Firefox called No Squint. I had the same problem. Got tired of adjusting the size on every page. Now it's all the same. Hope this helps.

Thank you so much. Ha it was kinda simple to change the setting. I guess I just wasn't looking good enough. Thanks again, now I can read up on National Geographic!
