How to Make Your Printer Print Bigger Fonts

Updated April 17, 2017

For some, the standard size font that is typically printed on online documents is too small. When the font is too small, the text can be difficult to read or understand. To resolve this issue, you can make the font larger by adjusting print settings.

Locate the toolbar when you see a document you want to print on the Internet. You can find it at the top of the page with the "File" and "Edit" options.

Place your cursor on the arrow next to the printer icon to reach the "Print Preview" option. If you do not have a printer icon, simply place your cursor on the "File" option and click on "Print Preview."

Locate the "Shrink to Fit" option. You will see this option once the "Print Preview" window opens. This bar is located at the top of the document.

Choose a number that will give you a bigger font, but will allow all the text to appear on the document. The 125 per cent option will typically enlarge the text and keep the document format the same.

Click the "Print" button once you are satisfied with what you have chosen. If you do not like the results, go back into the "Print Preview" window and choose a smaller "Shrink to Fit" percentage.
