Thanks, all. I had forgotten that you have to select the type first. Jean

Select the text you want to change the size of (or press CTRL-A to select the whole file).

Towards the top left of the screen it'll say something like Normal - Times New Roman - 8 (depending on which version of Word you're using.

Change the 8 (or whatever it is) to a larger number until you're satisfied with the size.

10 or 12 is usually fine.

Have you looked at the font size? I think from memory you need to highlight the text and then select the font and size that you want from the menu at the top there. Not much help am I? )))

I am trying to print a document in word, and I can get the type the right size on the screen, but for some reason cannot get it to print in anything but small print. Can anyone help? Jean
