Sometimes you can change the size of things on your screen by changing the screen resolution: On the Start screen, type screen resolution. When the search panel appears, click on Change the screen resolution, and if your device allows you, you can change the settings. This doesn’t always help though when you open an application that is not affected by changes to the screen resolution, and the text can still be very small and hard to read.
In cases like this, sometimes holding down the Ctrl key and scrolling with the center wheel of the mouse (if you use one) will zoom in or out, allowing you to see things better. If this doesn’t work, you can turn on Magnifier.
On the Start screen type magnifier. When the search panel appears, click on Turn magnifier on or off. When the Settings window opens, click on the slider under Magnifier to turn the Magnifier on.
Everything will now be bigger!
Click on the Magnifying glass symbol to change the settings, or click on the red X to close.
If you want to pin this application to Start for easy access, on the Start screen, type magnifier. When the search panel appears, press and hold Magnifier, and then tap Pin to Start. If you are using a mouse, right click Magnifier and then click Pin to Start.
You can also get to Magnifier by going to the Control Panel, and then choose Ease of Access, and then choose Ease of Access Center. There are other features there that may be useful.
