Yes, it can be done.

To make it bigger:
Use your cursor to click the Ctrl key.
Next click Shift.
Then click the + key.

You will have to repeat the process until you get the size you want.

To decrease the size, simply click Ctrl with your cursor then click the - key.

There is no way to hold them down at the same time when using the on-screen keyboard.

 

Each key is clicked individually. When clicked the Ctrl and Shift keys will turn to a bluish color.

 

IF you follow the process and the size does NOT increase, drag your cursor over part of the text on the page to highlight it.

 

Then try again using the steps I gave you.

 

When I tried the process with the on screen keyboard it was iffy about actually increasing. Sometimes it did, sometimes it did not. I found that dragging the cursor on the page text did work when increasing the font size. After it increased the first time, I did not have to highlight text to increase it more.

I repeat you do NOT hold them down at the same time. That is impossible to do using the on-screen keyboard.

 

This will show you what I am talking about. I used my handy dandy screen recorder to document the process.

 

Note that the first attempt did not work to make the text larger.

 

I did have to highlight the text to make it work.

Only to increase the size.

 

It reduced it without having to highlight anything.

 

Just try it. Then report back with the results.

Starting at about the 47 second mark of the video is how to decrease.

 

You simply press the Ctrl key with your cursor, then move the cursor to the - key and press it.

Yes, that should reduce the size.

There are other ways to increase the size without using a keyboard.

What browser are you using?

In Firefox there are 2 ways to increase/decrease the page size.

1) One the right side of the page from the 3 horizontal bars.
CLICK the bars. A window will open up.
The second row will look like this; use the + or - to adjust the size.

2) From the menu bar. View/Zoom

If you do not have the menu bar and you want to add it, RIGHT click in a empty space above the address bar and choose MENU BAR.

I can't literally use the on-screen keyboard since I don't have a touch screen, but I can bring it up and see what it does when I use the standard keyboard.

 

With the standard keyboard, and this is echoed on the on-screen keyboard:

 

CTRL+Plus Sign  magnifies Firefox, Chrome, Edge, or IE11 in the conventional step-up amount (about 5%) in each

 

CTRL+Minus Sign reduces magnification in all of the above, and, in fact, can start reducing with additional steps beyond what was 100%

 

CTRL+0 immediately returns things to 100% with no magnification/reduction no matter what the state had been

 

Since I work with people who are blind or have low-vision as part of what I do for a living I learned that these keyboard shortcuts were universally applicable as far as web browsers go quite a while back.  They also don't require the use of the number pad for the plus sign, minus sign, or zero - the ones on the top row of the keyboard work just fine and you do not have to hit SHIFT for the plus key when you are using it in this context (so, for all practical intents and purposes, what you're hitting is CTRL+equal sign).
