Increasing or Decreasing Text Size

Some users might find screen text easier to read by increasing or decreasing the size at which text is displayed. To do this you should adjust your browser settings:

If you have a mouse with a wheel and are using any standard browser, you can increase and decrease the size of the fonts in your browser by holding down the Ctrl key and rolling the mouse wheel up or down. Alternatively, you can press down and hold the Ctrl key and press either the + (plus) or - (minus) keys on the top of the keyboard for the same result.

Most browsers support pressing the Ctrl key and 0 (zero) at the same time to reset the font back to its default.
