Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Wouldn't a quick fix simply be to hold down ctrl and use the scroll wheel to increase/decrease font size on web pages?
If the browser is the only application where you need a larger text then Ctrl and scroll wheel as well as crtl+/crtl- are good options for enlarging and shrinking the text.
Well, I used to make big text with words on my computer screen, but now I forgot. It was easy, all I remember is typing [ and closing it ] but I don't remember what to write in it. Do u know that trick?
To make everything on my computer screen larger I press control and the + sign until it is the size I want.
I'm sure I'm not the only one that knows this, but I just hit control and + or - to make the fonts bigger or smaller. May just be a temporary fix.
Re: Article C2226 - This is in response to "I am old . Me too (pushing 80), and the way I change the text size in Windows 7 is I click on the sunburst or whatever the heck you call it in the upper right hand corner. This brings up a window with Print, File, Zoom etc. I click on Zoom and at the bottom is "Custom." You can then enter any number that's best for your viewing. I find that 112 works for me. Hope this helps.
I totally agree with Mark and Jerome about making the text larger or smaller using the ctrl + or - keys or the ctrl and the center scroll wheel on the mouse. They are only temorpary while you have that particular browser up and running. Works the same with the MAC also.
sorry i have tried your way but there is a problem with programs and internet windows not displaying the whole page it is so much easier to change your font and images this way
right click on your desk top click on peronalize,
click on windows color, look down to the dtop down box and click on icon, change the number to what you want to see your icons at and then change the font size this way no problem with programs or the internet
I have Windows 7 and could not find the area you mentioned in your suggestion "how to make font larger".
I have read the article and would like to receive your newsleter.
