[ad]Dear Computer Lady,
I can’t get my text bigger in Facebook.
I am going to start out by assuming that you are viewing Facebook on your PC computer (not a phone or tablet) and that you are using a web browser, probably Internet Explorer, or possibly Chrome or FireFox to view Facebook.
If this is the case, you just need to open Facebook in your browser, hold down the “Ctrl” key and scroll up or down to make the page bigger or smaller.
Make sure that you have the focus on the web page you are viewing, you can click once on the page if you are unsure.
There is also a menu that controls the size of your web page view.
In Internet Explorer, click the gear in the upper-right corner of your window, point to “Zoom” in the drop down menu, then select a percentage to view your page at.
In Chrome, click the menu icon in the upper-right corner of the window, go to the “Zoom” section and click the plus or minus symbol to increase or decrease the size of your page.
In FireFox, click the menu icon in the upper-right corner of the window, and click the plus or minus symbol in the second row to increase or decrease the size of your page.
Hope this helps, Elizabeth
