How big letters look on your screen depends on the way your computer is set up—how big your screen is, how your software is set up, etc. In many web browsers you can easily change the font size, but in Internet Explorer you may need to change a setting if you want to enlarge the text.

If you are using Internet Explorer, please follow these instructions and you will be able to change the print size on your screen:

  • Click the "Tools" menu:

Select Tools Menu


  • Select "Internet Options...":

Select Internet Options


  • Click the "Accessibility..." button (near the bottom on the right):

Click the Accessibility Button


  • Make sure the box "Ignore font sizes specified on Web pages" is checked:

Check Ignore Font Sized Specified On Web Pages

  • Once you make this change in your browser settings, you can go into the “View” menu in Internet Explorer, click “Text Size” and then select whichever size you like.
