In December 2010 and February 2011, Facebook made some radical changes to the layout of the site and the appearance of your personal profile page. One of the most-talked-about changes was the reduction in font size for messages and link text from an 11-point to a 9-point font. Although a small number of browser plug-ins exist to make Facebook text larger, they can be hard to configure and don't work with all browsers. Nevertheless, virtually all browsers allow you to enlarge text on Facebook -- or any other website -- with a couple of keystrokes and without downloading extra software.

Go to the Facebook.com homepage. Log in with your username and password.
Scroll to a wall post that you want to read. Alternatively, click the "dual-folders" icon to view your personal messages.
Press and hold the "Ctrl" key. Tap the "+" key a couple of time to enlarge the text in your browser screen. As you tap the "+" key, the text font grows in size. The more time you press the "+" key, the larger the font becomes.
Reduce the size of the text font by first pressing and holding the "Ctrl" key, then tapping the "-" key until the text size returns to normal.
