How to Increase the Font Size on "Age of Empires 3"

Updated July 19, 2017

"Age of Empires 3" is a real-time strategy game for the PC. As with most PC games, "Age of Empires 3" will automatically configure its settings based on the specifications of your computer and monitor. While there is no direct option to change the font size in the game, you can increase the font size by lowering the resolution. This will make dialogue and windowed text larger. However, because the resolution changes everything in the game, scenery and other objects will also grow in size.
