How to Increase the Text Size on this Website
There are several easy-to-use tools and controls built into your computer and Internet browsers that will increase the overall size of the website—text, graphics and all. Here's how you can do it:
If You're Using a Mouse with a Scroll Wheel
An easy way to increase the print size—and the size of many of the other features—is to hold down the Control (CTRL) key while rolling the scroll wheel on your mouse. Rolling it away from you will make the print size bigger, and rolling it toward you will make the print size smaller.
If You're Viewing this Site in Windows Internet Explorer
When using Windows Internet Explorer, select the View option on the Menu bar. There are two options on this menu to explore. The first is Text Size. It has about five choices: Largest, Larger, Medium, Smaller and Smallest. Choose the one that's right for you.
The other option is Zoom, which is how you can increase the print size onscreen if you are not using a mouse with a scroll wheel. The Zoom submenu gives you multiple options for increasing print size.
You can also easily access the Zoom function by looking for a magnifying glass option in the bottom left corner of your browser window. Clicking on this icon will automatically enlarge the page.
