    Hi mac forum members and mods.I'm new here,
    Let me start by admitting I'm a 15 yr PC user with a new macbook.
    I tried searching the new members must read stuff,but I need help
    understanding how to change my text size.How do I make it bigger.
    I apologize if I posted this in the wrong place,and urge you mods to
    put it where it belongs.I am familiar with v bulletin,as I'm a mod on
    another site they host.Please be gentle.

    Where are you trying to change the text size?

    - Within the OS environment such as the desktop & icons?
    - Within a specific application?
    - Or here at Mac-Forums?

    Sorry...but I really don't understand your reply.

    Since you are new to Macintosh computers...that's why I mentioned the options above....to figure out where you're trying to change the text size.

    thinking here.I sense an adventure out there.I love my new mac,but must admit I live up to
    my username.Please advise me if you think I should be posting somewhere else.
    If you move it,please let me know where.Kindernoob out.
