Easily increase font size

    I've seen a few (not many) people say they type in CAPS because it's easier for them to read due to poor eyesight. I just wanted to share something that not everyone may know. I think most do, but for those who do not, you can do the following to easily increase font size.

    Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and hit +

    you can also Ctrl - to make it smaller or Ctrl 0 to reset it to default size.

    There are other things you can do (browser add-ons, etc) to increase font size - I'm aware of that - but this is the easiest way to do it for those who are not quite as computer savvy as others (me included).

    I use the Ctrl + method 2 times and that seems to be the best fit for me.

    Warning - it will increase surrounding items on the site too - but at least you can read easier if your eyes aren't as kind to you as others. :)

    That is so clever - and I never knew about it. Thanks!
