Whether you've got a laptop with a tiny screen or a desktop with a giant monitor, your computer's fonts may be too small to read comfortably. Or, conversely, they could be larger than you need. Fortunately, you don't have to invest in a new pair of glasses. Whether you have a PC or a Mac, you can easily adjust the text size either for the entire operating system or just for particular parts of the interface. The methods vary based on your operating system and how much fiddling you want to do.
Many people find the text on the screen difficult to read, for example if you are working at a higher screen resolution or using a laptop with a smaller screen you may find the text too small to read easily. Also if you have a vision impairment you may also want to increase the size of the text to make it easier to read.
Font Size Changes You can also change the font size on your computer by using software commands. To change the font on your desktop or folders in Windows 10, Windows Central describes the process:
Right-click on your desktop and select "Display settings." Use the slider to change the size of the text.
Mac Font Size Changes In order to increase the font size on your Mac, you can lower your computer's resolution, change the size of the desktop icons, and increase the size of a sidebar size.
Choose the Displays Menu. Choose the Scaled button in the Resolution area. In the next window, select a lower resolution size.
Browser Font Size Changes You can also adjust the font size in your browser:
Firefox: Select tools -> options -> content -> font and color. Here you can change the default font size for the browser. Note that some websites have their font size set and the browser can’t always change it.
Safari: From the Safari menu, choose Preferences. Under the advanced tab look for the accessibility section and click the button for "Never use font sizes smaller than" and choose the font size that best meets your needs.
Internet Explorer: Select menu -> view -> text size. Or, depending on the version, there may be a slider in the bottom right corner you can move to increase the page size, much like zoom.
Google Chrome: From the Chrome menu, choose Preferences. This will open a settings window. Scroll down to the Appearance section, find the font size drop down and choose your font size, ranging from very small to very large.
