Print Larger

Print Larger

Do you sometimes print something off just to be disappointed by how small the text size is? Sometimes it’s so small, you can hardly even read it! I know that seems to happen to me all the time and nothing else drives me crazier! Are you with me? If you are, keep reading!

Depending on what program you’re working in, you can usually enlarge the text size of what you’re printing in the same general manner. Whether you’re printing off an e-mail you want to keep or a document you’ve been working on in MS Word, you can change the text size with just a couple easy steps.

To do this, go to what you want to print and highlight it all. You can either hit Ctrl + A to select it all, you can go to the Edit menu, Select All choice or you can drag your mouse over all of the text to highlight it. (There’s always so many options!) Okay, once you have it selected, use the drop down menu for the Text Size and choose a bigger size. Most programs start out with size 10 or 12, so you may want to bump yours up to 14 or 18. You can usually go all the way up to 36 or even 72, depending on how big you want it.

Once you have the text size changed, just go to File, Print and print the document out just like you normally would. Just keep in mind that if you do make the text as big as, say size 36, it will take up more paper to print it all out. Do what you deem necessary!
