Computer Tip: Increasing font size

This may be a little off subject but I thought it valuable if you don't know and useful for all - including veterans.

If you use a PC, many functions are available to make the computer experience a lot better and easier if you are aware.

A very good site to see many of the functions built into a PC (Personal Computer) intended for Windows users - especially Windows 10 - can be found on this page:

It's a good page for using the keyboard to make the computer experience a better one.  From time to time I intend to use this blog for what I consider helpful information that everyone ought to know - including and especially veterans.

(A blog (a truncation of the expression "weblog")[1] is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries ("posts"). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page.)

Just as the above link is a good page for using the keyboard to make the computer experience a better one, specifically some may not know that by depressing the 'CTRL' key and tapping the '+' key one can make the words larger.  By tapping the '-' key the reverse happens.  If you have a scrolling option on your mouse, CTRL and scrolling will produce the same advantage.  Making the print on a site larger (and easier to see) or smaller.  Try it.

One can change the font size on a Mac screen, too. Command-+, double-tap trackpad, or use thumb and fore-finger on trackpad to pinch zoom in, like on a phone or iPad.
