The answer may vary according to which operating system your computer uses and also the type of mouse you have.

One way is to hold down your Ctrl button with one hand while moving the scroll wheel on your mouse with the other. The text on your screen will enlarge if you roll the wheel forward, and reduce if you roll it backward. Change accordingly

Another way is to click on View in the main toolbar in the upper left hand corner of your screen and then scroll down to click on Zoom. A sub menu will pop up and you can then choose to Zoom Out. Change accordingly.

You can also click on the small black arrowhead pointing downward near the magnifying glass (it has a plus symbol in the center of the glass) in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Click on Zoom Out from the pop up menu. Changge accordingly

One method is to click on the View command in the main toolbar. Scroll down to Zoom and click to bring up the sub-menu. You can then choose to Zoom In, Zoom Out, or set a custom percentage of screen text size to be viewed.

You probably by accident zoomed out on your computer. On Google Chrome: Go to the top right corner and click the icon left to the wrench tool. Click the arrow and hit zoom. It will ask you to zoom in or out. On other software like Mozilla Firefox, click "view" then 'zoom' it will ask to zoom in or out.

Hold down the control key (Ctrl) and tap the key marked with + and = to enlarge the text. Tap the _ and - key to reduce the font size. This zooming also alters the whole page, not just the font and text.

If you use Internet Explorer, click on "view" in the upper left corner. Then, click on "text", and choose what size of text is fit for you!In Google Chrome, click on tools (picture of spanner) and zoom in closer to the page.

If it is on the internet then you go to view and scroll down to text size.. if it isn't please me know and i will help you out! May also try pushing "ctrl" down and then tapping the minus "-" button twice. Works the same if your needing to increase text size as well, just push the plus sign(+)

There are three ways in which a computer can be zoomed. They include use of a magnifier, use of the control key and the mouse and use of the zoom feature in a browser.

You can increase the percentage size of the area, to zoom in. There is a Zoom icon on the view tab. There is also the Zoom slider on some versions of Excel, at the bottom right of the screen.

Without knowing where on the computer the text has gone really small it is hard to help you. If the text has gone small on the desktop when you start up the computer then you need to make the text larger through the screen resolution part of your operating system. If the text has gone small in a word processing program then you will need to select the text and change the font size of that text.

It's possibly a zoom issue. Go to "view" on your browsers toolbar and then "zoom". You should then be given the option to zoom in.

To change the size of text and images on a web page, press Ctrl and + at the same time to zoom in and Ctrl and - at the same time to zooms out. To reset to default, press Ctrl and 0.
