If you have a hard time viewing small fonts on your computer, you’re not alone. Let us show you how to increase default font size. As traders, we spend the majority of our time in front of computer screens. While this might not affect some traders, most of us feel the pain of needing to sit in front of our machines all day. I used to walk away from my computer at the end of the trading day with a massive headache.
Small Adjustments Really Made An Impact
During the market hours when I was concentrating on my trades, I realized I was straining to see what was on my computer screen despite having a nice monitor setup. I made several changes like adjusting the height and distance of my monitors, taking short breaks throughout the day, and adjusting the font size of my computer. Right away I noticed a difference. These few adjustments really made an impact.
If you’re like me, you might experience similar issues. The changes I made to my trading computer setup were quick and simple. It took me five minutes to make these changes. I was just ignoring the issue for too long and put off making the necessary changes. Adjusting the font size on your trading computer to make it more readable is a two-minute change – maybe even less.
Increasing The Default Font Size On Your Trading Computer
- The first step is to go to your Start Menu.
- The next step is to click on the Settings app.
- In the menu choices on the left, click Accessibility.
- Next, select Text size from the options on the right.
- In the following window, drag the slider next to the Text size to change the font size.
- Choose the font size that suits you best using the preview section above the slider.
- Finally, select the Apply button to the right of the slider to save the changes made.
Once you log back on to your computer’s profile, you’ll see that the desktop icons, the fonts on the desktop icons, and all of the taskbar icons have changed. Everything has increased quite a bit. Now, you can go to one of your active windows and you’ll see that everything is much larger.
Make Additional Adjustments
Maybe the font size you choose was a bit larger or smaller than you expected. Undoing this change or selecting a different size is as simple as walking through these steps again. Walk through it once more in case you need to make additional changes until the size is a little easier on the eyes.
This is a simple change that can make all the difference when you spend hours on your trading computer daily.
