Hard to Read

Learn how to increase the size of everything in your browser.

At Silver Travel Advisor, we believe that internet accessibility is important even if you are not suffering a visual impairment.

Have you ever found that sometimes the images or prints on a web page are too small? Have you ever wondered if there was an easy way to fix that? Well the simple answer to that is... YES!

With today's browsers, you can make web pages easier to read by magnifying the entire page (zooming in). By zooming in, everything on the web page will be magnified.

OPTION 1

Everything is about the keyboard and what is known as a shortcut key.

Zoom in
On your keyboard, hold down the Ctrl key
and press, as many time as you need, the + key.
Each time you press the + key, the web page will appear closer.

Zoom out
On your keyboard, hold down the Ctrl key
and press, as many time as you need, the - key.
Each time you press the - key, the web page will appear further.

Release the Ctrl key once the web page appears to your satisfaction.

OPTION 2

Everything is about the browser itself and the menu items.
