Font size


G

Gary

As I get older, I'm finding font sizes to be too small in web pages and
in documents, sometimes. I need to spend a few moments adjusting fonts
so they're large enough to read comfortably.

In my Mac work, there's a shortcut: Cmd+ and Cmd- that allows me to
adjust font size easily.

Is there a similar easy method for Windows 7, either with operating
system shortcuts or with some application I could buy and install?

That is a matter for the browser, not Windows 7. If you are using IE,
there are two options that will enlarge the the type on a web page. The
first sets only the font size and won't work if fonts are set to an
absolute size in pixels. On the "Page" drop down menu select "Text
size." The second option is to enlarge the whole page. On the same
"Page" drop down menu, select "Zoom." If you have the Status Bar
enabled, the Zoom option is also available in the bottom right corner.
The Zoom can also be called with Ctrl+ and Ctrl-.

I assume you want to enlarge the entire desktop image, not just the text.
To do this semi-permamently, go to "Control Panel -> Display". To
temporarily enlarge a portion of the desktop use the Magnifier tool. To be
effective this requires Aero.

A Windows standard to change font sizes, working in many (but not all)
applications, including IE, Word, etc.: hold down the Ctrl key and
scroll the mouse wheel; one direction makes it bigger, the other
smaller.
