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:
Open Screen Resolution by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, and then, under Appearance and Personalization, clicking Adjust screen resolution.
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.
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.

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.

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.
