How to Enlarge the Size of the Text on this Website

Zoom Feature:

Hold the control key down with your left pinky finger and scroll the wheel up or down to zoom in on the text! Now that is cool! Note that once you have zoomed in on the text size in one window, it will remain in the enlarged state in all future windows requiring that you zoom out again if you wish on other websites. Note that most web pages are not designed to be rendered properly in a zoom state.

IE's zoom may also be accomplished without a wheel mouse using the zoom feature of the status bar in IE7 at the very bottom right hand corner of your screen. There you may see a little magnifier image and a number like 100% or greater. Clicking on it will increase the number or click on the little arrow to display the menu where you can choose the zoom level or restore it to 100%.

Note that zooming on on a page will make the text larger but it will also enlarge the images and in many cases seriously deteriorate the qualiity of the these images. For optimal image viewing your browser should be set to 100% or normal viewing.

NOTE: If you don't see this information at the lower right hand corner of your browser window, you may not have a later version of IE... or you may not have the status bar enabled. To enable it, go to the menu bar at the top of IE and go to View > Status bar and check it... or go to the tools menu and select Tools > Toolbars > Status bar.


Other Options:

The most basic way to enlarge text is to go to the menus at the top of your web browser, select View | Text Size and choose something larger than what is checked.

-OR-

Right click anywhere on your open desktop (computer screen) and choose "Properties" from the popup menu.

This will bring up the display properties dialog box also accessible from the Display applet in the Windows Control Panel.

On the Appearance tab you can change your font size or "DPI" setting to large size if it's currently set to small or normal. You can also set the font size for various Windows options like icons, window title bar, menus, etc to a custom size and font. Personally we like Verdana. Back in the Display Properties, click OK and Windows will either change the settings dynamically or do it after a reboot, depending on how you have your system configured.

Or you can also click on the Settings tab and on the General tab of the display properties dialog box, click on the 'Advanced' button, and you should have the ability to change your "DPI" setting not only to large size but also the ability to choose a custom size. Back in the Display Properties, click OK and Windows will either change the settings dynamically or do it after a reboot, depending on how you have your system configured.
