God says that he will help those who help themselves, and he means this by us helping others. Thank you Lord!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank "Bleeping Computer" for this endeavor they have accomplished. I was begining to think that there wasn't any concise direction for persons such as myself to follow with their computer problems, but this community has stepped forward and achieved this collective goal. As a new member I am amazed at how well you have all come together to reach this goal, and the continued maintenance that is required is accomplished.
I am visually impaired; and suffer from eye strain on a continual basis, and I am wondering if "BC" could increase the overall font size in the postings? Please understand that my physical affliction is not something I carry on my bannered sleeve for others to deal with. This is the only time I will ask you for your consideraation. I thank you all for your time and consideration :thumbsup: , and if I had four thumbs, I would offer you six.
DO YOU KNOW WHY GOD DIDN'T GIVE US THREE HANDS? bECAUSE WE WOULD MOAN AND GROAN THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE FOUR!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

Hi KYME

Welcome to BleepingComputer.

Try holding down the CTRL key and using your scroll button on the mouse to alter text size. This should work wherever you have text.

Cheers

In addition to the "Ctrl" key and Scroll Button method of increasing text size (Which I use a lot),
here is a free utility magnifier that works on various OSs.

Virtual Magnifying Glass


Windows XP also has an installed magnifier.

Hi,

Also, on IE7 (for those who use it) you can press and release the Alt key to see the menu, then you can select
View, then their will be an option to set text size.

For Firefox, on 3.0 the Text Size has been replaced by the word Zoom, but it still functions the same,
hold down the ctrl key and press the + key to zoom in (Make the text appear bigger) and hold down the ctrl key and
press the - key to zoom out.

That should help also. :thumbsup:
