How to Make Fonts Small


Depending on what you are writing and space considerations, your font size may need to be smaller than your system's default. Decreasing the font size is one way to fit more information on the page and save space. Another reason to decrease font size is when the text in your browser or on your monitor appears too large in relation to your screen resolution. Adjusting font size is a simple, fast operation, since most browsers and word processing software offer easy adjustment.

Things You'll Need

  • Word processing software
  • Go to the Control Panel and select "Personalization." Click "Adjust Font" size on the left hand menu. Select "Default Scale." Click "Apply" and then "OK."

  • Open the Mozilla Firefox browser. Go to "Tools" on the top toolbar and select "Options," then "Content." Select a font size in the "Fonts and Colors" menu and click "OK." This option is not available for Internet Explorer.

  • Open Microsoft Office Word. Click the "Home" tab on the top toolbar. Select a font size from the drop-down menu under "Page Layout."

  • Open Notepad. Click "Format" on the top toolbar and select "Font." Choose a font size from the right hand menu and click "OK."

  • Open iWork if you have a Mac. Click the font size from drop-down menu under the "Shapes" icon.

Tips & Warnings

  • Highlight the text then press Ctrl + Shift + < to decrease the font by one size.
