Re: How do I increase letter font size on my new laptop?

Hi,

 

You may try this:

 

Hold down the Ctrl key and press + (plus) sign few times (press minus sign will make text smaller). OR you can use these steps:

 

To make the text on your screen larger or smaller
  1. Open Screen Resolution by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, and then, under Appearance and Personalization, clicking Adjust screen resolution.

  2. Choose one of the following:

    • Smaller - 100% (default). This keeps text and other items at normal size.

    • Medium - 125%. This sets text and other items to 125% of normal size.

    • Larger - 150%. This sets text and other items to 150% of normal size. This option appears only if your monitor supports a resolution of at least 1200 x 900 pixels.

  3. Click Apply.

    To see the change, close all of your programs and then log off of Windows. This change will take effect the next time you log on.

Regards.

BH

Hello Raineman,

 

I see that you are trying to increase the font size on your computer. I would like to help with this issue but I need some information.

 

Can you provide the model and product number of the computer? Here is a link that shows how to find that information.

Re: How do I increase letter font size on my new laptop?

Hello Faye48. I understand you would like to increased the letter size on your new laptop. I located a Microsoft document on how to adjust this content: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/make-screen-text-larger-smaller#make-screen-text-larger-s...

 

I have provided the Windows 8 troubleshooting, under the assumption that your new computer contains Windows 8. If the troubleshooting is for Windows 7, the steps are essentially identical.

 

Please respond if you have any other questions or concerns.
