My OS I win 7 64 bit and whenever I search for a direction, the text seems to be of a small font size.  How can I enlarge the text to print it as a bigger font.  I tried enlarging on the screen to a bigger font by scrolling my moue then printing it, but it is still in the same original small font. Thank u for your suggestions.

If Google Maps is getting its font size from IE, then you may be able to adjust the overall size level in IE with View and Zoom and also View and Text Size. The latter may adjust the text size for you.

If Google Maps is getting its font size from Windows, there is another approach.

Right Click on the Desktop and select Personalize. Click on Windows Color (the underlined link). That brings up Windows Color and Appearance. Go through the item list and there are 7 or 8 items with Text sizes. Default is Tahoma 8. Make them 10 point and see if that helps. Message box is one of the items for example. Just look for all Fonts: Tahoma 8 and make them 10 point.

See if this helps.
