How to Increase Font Size on Web Pages


Font size or text size on web pages is not universal. Some web pages may use dramatically smaller text than others, making it hard to read. The best solution to overcome this problem is by increasing the font size within your web browser. If this makes the font size on other pages too large, you can always change it back to its original setting.

Mozilla Firefox

  • Click "Tools" on the Firefox menu. Select "Options."

  • Select the tab labeled "Content." Click on "Size" next to "Fonts and Colors." Choose your font size, ranging from nine to 72.

  • Click on "OK" to save your changes.

Internet Explorer

  • Click "Page" at the top part of Internet Explorer's menu.

  • Select "Text Size" from the list of options.

  • Choose from "Smallest, Smaller, Medium, Larger or Largest." Click on your selection to save your changes.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can also use your "Zoom" feature to enlarge (zoom) text on web pages (Mozilla Firefox). Click on "View," "Zoom," "Zoom Text Only," and then hold the "CTRL" button on your keyboard while scrolling your mouse wheel forward. This will enlarge the text size on a web page, but not the icons or images.
