Increase the Text Size in Your Browser

You can make the text on your computer easier to see and read in a number of ways. Increase the text size in web browsers such as Internet Explorer or Firefox temporarily, or every time you surf the internet.

Temporary Fix:
Use Your Shortcut Keys

To increase or decrease the magnification of a web page, press Ctrl and '+' (plus) to zoom in or Ctrl and '-' (minus) to zoom out. To return the page to its original size, press Ctrl + 0 (zero).

This shortcut works for all browsers and websites. It's that simple!
