Solo Tip Tuesday: Change the Size of Your Font On the Fly

by Sara Crocker on March 13, 2012

If your mouse has a wheel on top for scrolling, you can easily change your font size on the fly. Here’s how:

Press and Hold the button. While holding down the button, use the mouse wheel to:
• Scroll down (or towards you) to make the font larger
• Scroll up (or away from you) to make the font smaller

Each click of the scroll button changes the font size slightly—so you have almost unlimited control over the font size. When you want to change it back, simply make it smaller using the method above until you get the size you want.

When you decide to change the font size back to the default, go up to the toolbar and:
• Choose View
• Choose Zoom
• Choose 100 percent

Another way to change the size of the font is to go up to the toolbar and:
• Choose View
• Choose Text Size
• Choose from among the choices of Smallest to Largest

The disadvantage to increasing the size of the font is you will see less text on your screen, but that may be made up by the fact that you can actually read what’s on the page.
