    Bigger font
    Hi,
    I've had my imac for a few months now and it is basically be used as it came out the box.
    The screen resolution is set at 2560x1440, when I'm on the net I am finding it hard to read as everything is to small, I'd like the font to be bigger but I do not know how to change it, I'd like to stay at 2560x1440 as it fills the screen up nicely.
    Can someone tell me what to do and how to do it.

    Cheers Kev.

    Each browser does font settings differently. What browser are you using? As a temporary measure, you can zoom in by pushing Command - "+".

    Indeed.

    Or if your using Safari right click in the toolbar and select "Customise Toolbar" and drag the zoom buttons into toolbar.

    Go to Chrome > Preferences > Settings > Show advanced settings... > Web content. You can change some settings there that might be of help.

    How to increase font size
    I was a PC guy so I listened to MAC users on how to solve the problem of huge scree / tiny font. It was simple. Download Chrome Google, go to preferences, advanced setting (at bottom of page) and web settings, Font can be set from tiny to large. It works!
