If you are using Internet Explorer, click on the word "View" at the top left of your screen. Select "Text Size" and choose a larger text size.

If the adjustment available isn't sufficient there are other adjustments through "Display" in the control panel.

If you are using Firefox, click "View, again top left of your screen.
Choose "Text Size".
Click on the + Increase button

If you have a scroll mouse and are using Firefox, pressing Ctrl while scrolling will increase or decrease text size as well as the size the page is displayed on screen.

If you are using Firefox, Netscape or any Mozilla-derived browser hold the control key down and press the + sign. Also, Ctrl-minus will make the font smaller.

Open Internet Explorer
Go to:

View > Text Size > Largest

or if that doesn't work, have you tried to change the resolution size of your monitor? I ask because it sounds like you might have a new computer. Try this:

right click on any open space on your desktop > Properties > Settings

There is a slide control for resolution. Set it to the lowest numbers, as this will make the images on your screen the largest.
