We all know someone who needs to have their phone at arm’s length to read a text or check out our blogs. Our Tip of the week is designed to help you adjust your font size to make it easier to read what’s on your phone screen. We’ve also included some tips for Chrome users on pc/laptop/tablet.

 

Android

The steps for changing the font size on an Android phone is more or less the same, however, the wording might be slightly different depending on the make and model of the phone.

  • Settings
  • Display
  • “Font size and style” (Samsung) or “Text and display” ( Huawei)
  • Here you can adjust the size

Chrome Browser PC/Laptop or Tablet

We’ve mentioned in previous tips that Chrome is the most popular browser. If you are using FireFox, Opera or Explorer then we look forward to your comments below. In general, you’ll find this feature in the Options/Customise/Control menu of most browsers.

 

On Chrome, look at the top right-hand corner of your browser, you’ll see 3 vertical dots which is the Customise/Control menu. Click on this and you’ll see the menu of controls dropdown. You’ll have the option to Zoom which increases the text size by clicking on the plus sign. You can adjust to your own liking using the plus and minus buttons.
