i just got a new to me computer !!! free !!!!!!!!!!!!! it has windows 7 on it. i cannot figure out how to make the font sizes larger in forums like this one.

On mine you go to the bottom of the screen where the Micro Soft little flag is, hit that and look for magnifier.

ctrl plus + and ctrl plus - will zoom in and out in chrome, IE and firefox.

Fix'n it, you can change how the windows show up on the taskbar by right clicking on the taskbar and clicking properties.its in there.

Along with CTRL + and CTRL -, CTRL 0 resets it back to default which is what you've been changing.
