Larger Text for Tired Eyes in Windows

If you’re finding it difficult to read things on your computer because they look a little small on your screen, there’s a quick way to remedy this in Windows 7.

1. Open the Start Menu in the lower left and select Control Panel.

2. Then choose Appearance and Personalization.

3. Select the option to Make text and other items smaller or larger.

You’ll have the option to decide how much larger you’d like to make things. Making text larger can affect the display of some items and be aware you might have difficulty getting everything to fit on a page.


You can choose from the presets of 125% or 150%.

4. You also have the option of selecting a custom size for text. You’ll find that to the far left of your screen.

You can select a size from the drop-down menu or drag your mouse along the ruler.

You will need to shut all of your programs and log off Windows for the changes to take effect.  If you find you don’t like the new custom size, just repeat the steps and put it back to 100%, which was the default.
