Here you can increase the font size by 125% or 150%. make your selection. This works as follows:

  • Smaller – 100% (default). This keeps text and other items at normal size.
  • Medium – 125%. This sets text and other items to 125% of normal size.
  • Larger – 150%. This sets text and other items to 150% of normal size. This option appears only if your monitor supports a resolution of at least 1200 x 900 pixels.
