  • You can open Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display and change the DPI setting.

    In some programs you can press Ctrl and move the mouse wheel to adjust the font size.

    Answers to questions like these often depend on what programs you are
    using for these functions (e-mail, scanning, and copying). Please tell
    us.

    But note the following, which is a Windows standard and works in many
    (but not all) applications: You can change the size of the fonts
    displayed by holding down the Ctrl key and scrolling the mouse wheel.
    One way makes it smaller, the other bigger.
