Scroll the Size of Your Text!


Have you ever visited a web page where the text is so small it’s barely readable?


This question was answered on October 27, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Text comes in all different sizes – big, small, short and tall Sometimes while browsing the Internet we may find it too large or small for our taste (or to see period) In such an instance it’s nice to know there is a simple way to resolve it

Follow the steps below:

1 While displaying the web page, hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard.

2 Now use the scroll wheel on your mouse to increase or decrease the size of the text.

That’s all there is to it! It’s safe to say this won’t work with every website, but most support this function

In the event that you don’t have a mouse with a scroll wheel, go to View > Text Size > from there you’ll have a choice of several different sizing options Enjoy!
