Latest Keyboard Tip--how to quickly enlarge print

 

I am not computer savvy and when someone gives me a tip that makes working on the computer easier, I listen.  One of my Montana cousins just sent me this tip:

This is for everyone  whose eyesight isn't what it used to be.  I
just found out about it, and thought I would pass the information on. It's
very useful when trying to read small e-mail print (especially in the  early
hours).
If you hold down the Ctrl key on your key board and turn the small wheel in
the middle of your mouse, the print size will change - it will either get
larger or smaller - depending on which way you turn the wheel.

Pass this on to other friends who may find it very useful....I'm glad I was
told.

Now, this worked on the email she sent me because I tested it--and it worked on this note when I copied it into Word to spell check it--I do not know why it will not work in this blog.  I hope someone else finds this helpful--I do not want to be giving everyone "old news."

You can still enlarge the blog text.  There is just not a shortcut for the blog text like you found for other text print.

Just click View at the top of your browser window, then Text Size, and finally change it to the size you desire.

Leslie,

Thank you so much for the tip.  I had turned my print down on accident and was going crazy trying to fix it.  I did a search and found your site.  Thanks again.

Hi Cheri,  I wish I had the answer for you, but I don't.  Maybe, you could call the help line for your product.  Have a great holiday and good luck!

Googled 'change screen font size' and up came your post--thanks so much for this tip!  My laptop does not have a wheel as it's a touchpad deal, so I plugged in a mini mouse from an older laptop, pressed ctrl and scrolled with the wheel, and now I can see the screen again--thanks!!  I had accidently given some command with the keypad to reduce the size...not going to experiment to see what I did :D  !!  Thanks again :)
