    Which browser? Firefox supports larger fonts by just using Ctrl and +

    Why you want such big font?

    Could be because the CSS style fixes the font style. If you're using IE, forget it, go for Firefox.

    for IE,
    go to tools, choose internet option, select accessibility at bottom right, tick ignore font size specified on webpage, click apply.
    come out to menu again, got to view, select text size, choose the size you want.

    dell just delivered their 30 inch LCD to me.
    i set my resolution to the max, and realised the fonts all became too small from my viewing distance.
    i already up the font size as mentioned but seems like no effect at all.
    any idea?

    this monitor woes is really slowing down my pp works....

    but how to stick to it when they delivered 2 to me and it has the same problems?

    it's crap.really.

    the 30 inch is definitely better than the 27 from my experience.

    anyway, i may give up dell and go get apple.

    i really cant take this monitor **** anymore.

    If the font is in graphic format, it cannot be resized

    have you tried this suggestion, it should work for IE 7.0 (may select also ignore font style). However, if you're using IE6 then the short-cut is a bit diff. but similar feature also available.

    It all depends on how the webpage is coded. As mentioned by Rashkae, if CSS stylesheets are used, it is not quite possible to change the font size as the coding is in font pixels. For example, font size of a simple sentence on a webpage can be coded in 2 way:
    i. Conventional HTML tags, controlable in display size in browser under menu option View -> Text Size:

    <font size="4">This is a test</html>

    ii. CSS Style Coding, not possible to change the size of the font in browser as it is in pixels:

    <font style="font-size: 10px;">This is a test</html>


    Alternatively, toggle your desktop to display a larger font DPI size. Go to Control Panel -> Display Properties -> Settings Tab -> Click on Advanced Button.

    Change the DPI setting and choose Custom. Next Enter a larger DPI like 150&#37; or higher. Depending on your resolution setting for your monitor.

    Hope this helps.

    thanks all.i'll go home and try.

    i thought getting a bigger monitor means i can sit further back to browse webpages.
    but when i set to max resolution, it seems like all fonts become smaller and i have to actually sit nearer to browse...

    ironical isnt it?

    No, that's really how it works, and how a lot of people LIKE it to work.

    If you want to sit further back, you should reduce your resolution... Of course, it'll look horrible.

    but but but....why?
    why people like to look at smaller fonts and sit so close till eye strain?
    if all the methods doesnt work, i reckon i will have to lower the resolution.
