    Changing the font size on Windows 8 PC

    On my Windows 8 PC I find the font size too small for the display screen. It is quite tough to read the instructions on screen and is a big strain for the eyes. How can the font size be corrected on the PC?

    Re: Changing the font size on Windows 8 PC

    Windows PC offers fonts according to preset sizes. The default size set up until manual correction is ‘smaller-100%’. This is described in correspondence with the screen resolution. The font size on the PC can be increased by increasing this preset size. This can be done by first opening the settings page. From this page select the option for control panel. From the control panel select display from which you will be able to select font size. Set it to greater size and confirm the selection.

    Move your mouse pointer to the top right corner of the screen and activate SEARCH,
    Type DISPLAY in the box,
    click SETTINGS,
    click DISPLAY,
    select SMALLER---100%, MEDIUM--125%,LARGER--150%, from those three preset text sizes.
    click APPLY ,

    This will increase the font size across Windows 8.

    Dear friend,

    If you are having problem during reading the instructions on screen, you should do the following:
    1. Decrease the screen resolution of the monitor. Right click on desktop and go to Personalization menu. Go to display option. Here you can either adjust the resolution which will affect the monitor regulation or select display size as Medium or Larger. Both will produce the same effect.
    2. You can use magnifier tool that comes with Windows 8. It will magnify a small portion of your screen.

    Thanks!

    - Click search
    - enter Display in the search box
    - Click Settings, and then click Display.
    -Now choose smaller , medium or larger as per your monitor requirements
