How to Make Fonts Larger

Hefty fonts add dimension and emphasis to words to help get your meaning across to your desired audience. Whether used to separate the title of an article from the body or to stress urgency such as "Buy Now!" there are times when a large font size is simply the better choice. In other situations, fonts may be too small to read comfortably on a computer screen.
