The writing on my screen has gotten very small. How can I get the print bigger?

The print on the screen used to be a normal size and then one day it just got smaller and so fine that I cannot read some web pages. How can I correct this

    Dear fellow member, Try closing or minimizing all applications, right click anywhere on your desktop background, go to properties, assuming you're using Windows XP select Theme Tab and select Windows Classic or Windows XP Theme to reset all desktop style and fonts. If this is not the case, Try Under your browser - View Menu > Text Size > And select your appropriate font size you wish to use. Kind regards, Ben

    Windows XP? Start --> Settings--> Display --> Font Size -- > Normal / Large ---------------- or ------------------------ Start --> Settings--> Display --> Screen Resolution --> 800 x600

    sit closer to the screen!!!! Just kidding of course. If you using an application such as Word, excel etc then increase the font size up to at least 10 using the toolbar at the top of the screen or increase the Zoom to 100%. If it is the desktop icons et al that are small then right-click on the desktop (Not on an icon) go to properties, click on the settings tab, change the sliding scale under screen resolution one to the right and let go. Click OK. If it is still small then repeat the actions until you find a suitable resolution. Good luck!!

    Top left on your screen are various options - click on 'view' then click on 'text size' and make your adjustments.

    Press your mouse scroll wheel down, scroll up or down while pressing ctrl button, when happy with text size, press the mouse scroll wheel again. SORRY no need to press your scroll wheel down!!! (ctrl+scroll wheel up or down)

    Like Stephen H said ... in Internet Explorer, click "View" in the menu across the top of the screen, then on the drop-down menu, click "Text Size" and then click anything "Medium" or above.

    the easiest way is to hold ctrl and scroll up or down to make the text bigger or you could go to view text size and chose medium or if you have firefox go to view text increase or decrease and this should solve the problem you have if this doesn't work than it maybe your screen resoultion in display settings however if all of these fail to work than email me at dylz1210@yahoo.co.uk
