Make Monitor Print Larger

contest winner icon

If you have difficulty seeing your monitor, rather than get your reading glasses, hold down the control key with your left hand and with hand on mouse scroll away from you to make the print larger. To make it normal again, scroll toward yourself. This makes life much easier.

Of course this requires a mouse with a "scroll" wheel.

If you don't have a scroll wheel, you can also press the Control key and the + key at the same time. This will enlarge the text in increments.

Also, more sites are providing the "increase font size" feature, which is usually in the upper right side of the page. This feature can be shown in different ways-- most often with three different size A's.

Jeanne, I was aware of pressing the + key but thought scrolling was much faster which is why I posted it.
