Dear all,

I have a new laptop running on Windows 7 and Office 2007. Now, the laptop screen is pretty wide (15.6") and all UI names and all functions are really small – by this I mean really all predefined fields, email text, etc. I know there is a way to enlarge the font, but I don't know how to do it? Just to make it clear, I know how to increase the font in Office documents, but this is a different issue. Please, if someone knows how, explain how.

Thank you
Andreja

Andreja,

I do not know what UI means, but to increase the size font on the computer screen while browsing the Internet, you might just press Ctrl key and not releasing it press "+" key.

Pressing Ctrl and "-" keys you'll be able to decrease the font size.

HTH,

Dmitri

Hi Andreja,

Go Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display and select Medium or Larger. That will change UI font size.
