Adjusting browser font settings

You can adjust the font settings in your browser to always use a specific size. This method will be retained, and all browser windows and tabs will use this size.

Please see the instructions to do this with different browsers:

Google Chrome
Windows Internet Explorer 11

Note: Some websites will not display the desired font size even after adjusting browser font settings. Use the quick font size change solution to increase font size.

Zooming to increase page size

You can zoom in to change the font size for your current browser window or tab. This method may not be retained if you open another tab or window.

Here are instructions for doing this with different operating systems:  

Windows users: Press the CTRL and plus.svg keys to zoom in, and the CTRL and minus.svg keys to zoom out.

Mac OS X users: Press the CMD and plus.svg keys to zoom in, and the CMD and minus.svg keys to zoom out.
