How to Make HP Fonts Bigger

By Erin McManaway

The Windows font size setting on your HP computer or laptop controls how large or small text appears on your screen. Changing this font will increase the size of text on desktop icons, menus and some computer programs. Larger text can help provide better visibility for computer applications, especially on an HP computer that has a higher screen resolution. You can adjust the text size until you find a size that is large enough for your needs.

Step 1

Click the "Start" button to launch the start menu from your task bar.

Step 2

Click "Control Panel" and select "Display." This will show you what your current font size is, with 100% being the default size.

Step 3

Click "Set custom text size (DPI)" from the menu.

Step 4

Type a number into the percentage text box with 100 being the default size. You will see a sample of the text size under the ruler display.

Step 5

Click "OK" once you have found a text size that you like.

Step 6

Reboot your HP computer to see the font change take place. If you decide you need a larger or smaller font, return to the font DPI settings to change them again.
