Text sizes

All web browsers have some built-in provision for making the text on screen larger or smaller. Normally this is achieved from the keyboard using the following shortcuts:

  • CONTROL (CMD on Mac) and '+ (plus)' to make text larger/zoom in
  • CONTROL (CMD on Mac) and '- (minus)' to make text smaller/zoom out
  • CONTROL (CMD on Mac) and '0 (zero)' to return to the default setting

In some legacy browsers (such as Internet Explorer 6) it's necessary to adjust text sizes from a menu instead. To do so select 'View / Text Size' from the menubar and increase/decrease the size of the text as required.

Identifying your web browser

If you’re not sure which browser or version you’re using, simply select ‘Help / About…’ from the main menu. The specific menu option may read ‘Help / About Internet Explorer’, ‘Help / About Opera’ etc.
