How to Make Web Pages Larger

By Lucosi Fuller

The Internet is a wonderful place where you can read about anything that's ever been put inside the Web's wide-spanning database, but some websites have incredibly small print that can barely be read by people with the best vision. To change the small print so that it's more visible, you can increase the size of the web page so that everything that appears on-screen is larger. You'll no longer have to strain your eyes or get close to the screen while you browse the Web.

Step 1

Click on the down arrow beside the icon that looks like a magnifying glass at the lower right corner of the screen in Internet Explorer, and a menu will appear. To increase the size of a Web page, click on a number that is higher than 100 percent, which is the default size. You can click on the "Custom..." button to change the size to fit your preferences.

Step 2

Click on "View" on the toolbar in Mozilla Firefox, run the mouse pointer over "Zoom," and then click on "Zoom in" to increase the size of a Web page.

Step 3

Click on "View" in Safari, and a drop-down menu will appear. Click on "Make Text Bigger" to increase the size of your Web page.

Step 4

Click on "View" on the toolbar in Opera, and a drop-down menu will appear. Run the mouse pointer over "Zoom" and select a larger size than the one that has the asterisk (*) beside it to make Web pages bigger.

Step 5

Click on "Control the current page" in Google Chrome, and and a drop-down menu will appear. Run the mouse pointer over "Text zoom" and click on "Larger."

Tips & Warnings

  • In the Safari, Opera and Google Chrome Web browsers, altering the Web page from the "View" menu will increase the text size or the image size, as opposed to the entire Web page.
