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.
QUOTE Thanks

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.

This site is pretty awesome,I was checking out a few threads and will be coming here often.
My post was moved to Apple forums.I had to search to find it.I see you like to keep folks
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.
