My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and as my eyesight is not that great now, I need to magnify the text when reading a web site or anything.  Making the fonts throws out of syn my other apps.
is there any program that I can use to draw a rectangle over the text or screen I wish to read in a bigger font.  Thank u.

In most popular browsers, you may hold down the Ctrl key and then tap the += (plus-equal) key to increase the font size and the _- (underscore-minus) key to decrease the font size. You may do this as many times as you want (increasing and decreasing the size) until the page is readable for you. This won't affect sizes in other apps. Regards, Joe

Meant to say in my first post – try the Ctrl-plus/equal key on this EE page...I think you'll like it. Usually, a few consecutive taps will get the size where you need it to be. Regards, Joe

In most apps, with the ALT key (bottom-left of keyboard) held down, use the mouse wheel to adjust the font size.
