Changing the size of the text

You can change your text settings through your browser options in the top toolbar on your page: in Internet Explorer, go to View > Text size and select your desired text size setting (e.g. larger, smaller); in Netscape browsers go to View>Text size. Select a larger or smaller 'percentage' or click on 'larger' (or 'smaller') to go one size up or down.

Changing your computer screen settings

To change the size of the image shown on your screen on a PC running the Windows 95 and upwards operating system, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display > Settings and change the desktop area by using the sliding bar.

On an Apple Macintosh, you can use the Monitor & Sound Control Panel to change the resolution.

Having difficulty with your keyboard or mouse?

You can fine-tune your mouse and keyboard settings under Start>Settings>Control Panel>Accessibility in Windows 95/98/NT/2000 and XP.
