All browsers come with balanced fonts, readable and easy on the eyes. However, there are times when you just get tired of watching same font style or maybe the font size is not big enough for you. Some people have weak eyesight so they need to make the fonts bigger to be able to read comfortably.
For all these reasons, all browsers come with the option of changing fonts, both size and type. If you are having issues with the fonts you can easily change them from your browser’s settings. Although the process for reaching these settings is not same for every browser. You need to know how you can change fonts on your particular browser and we are here to help.
In all browsers, changing font settings is quite easy, all you have to care about is figuring out which setting will work best for you and leave the rest to us. We will cover all major browsers and hopefully you will find your browser in them too.
Tip: If you are only looking for making fonts bigger or smaller to see them better (can be quite handy for reading small wordings), then you can also use your mouse to zoom in or zoom out. All you have to do is press “Ctrl” key and move Mouse wheel to zoom in or wheel down to zoom out (of course, if you have a mouse with a Wheel). If you don’t have a mouse with a wheel, then you can also press “Ctrl” key and use “+” (Plus) and “–“ (minus) keys to zoom in or out. Furthermore, if you like to get back to default zoom then just press Ctrl+0 to reset to default zoom.
