Have you ever been reading online and thought “Wow, that text is small?”

I’m on my second pair of bifocals and I certainly find that a frequent thought that occurs to me!

And fortunately, there is a simple Windows trick called a keyboard shortcut that will allow you to quickly and easily increase the size of the text you are reading online.

And to do this you open a webpage with text upon it, like the blog page you’re looking at now, you press and hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and at the same time push the scroll wheel on your mouse away from you and the text should become much larger!

And if you then find that the text is too big for your liking you can always do the same thing in reverse to decrease the size of the text you’re looking at online; simply press down and hold the Ctrl button again and then pull the scroll wheel on your mouse towards you and that should decrease the size of the text your looking at.

Two Ctrl Key Notes:

1) You may notice in looking at your keyboard that there are actually two Ctrl keys and you may wonder which one you should use to try this tip. And the answer to that is either key – as they will both do the same thing.

2) The Ctrl key is also known as the Control key, Ctrl is actually an abbreviation of the world Control.
