Change Your Font Size & Change Your Attitude

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips

Pssst… want to know a quick and easy secret to getting more done? Enlarge the font size you’re working with.

A study by optometrists published in the journal Optometry and Vision Science found that something as simple as increasing the font size on a document you’re working on can help you get more done. Not only will you work faster, but the task at hand will seem easier.


Interestingly enough, the effect it the same whether you’re young or old. There was no difference in the reaction of teens to the reaction of senior citizens.

Even the small difference of working with a 12 point font instead of a 10 point font can make a difference in the way you perceive the task. So go ahead, increase that font size or enlarge that screen view. You’ll get more done.

    How do I increase the font size on my desktop

    I have known this tip for a long time. Unfortunately, your newsletters are initially done in too small a type for my old eyes and when I enlarge the page, the printing then runs off the edge of the screen. Please practice your own advice and increase the size of your font, or at least use a method that will allow increasing font size and readjusting line breaks to prevent text from running off the side of the screen.

    In answer to Les Arthur comment. The solution to this is simple. Press Ctrl and the + key together at the same time until you reach the size you like. This do the trick for you so you don’t the “running of the screen” problem.

    I know about doing that – it is the same as pressing CTRL and using scroll wheel on the mouse. Most of the time, WS allows that in their articles, but often it pushes text off the side. They just need to make sure their formatting consistently allows that.
