Change text size on the screen

If you have difficulty reading the text on your screen, you can change the size of the font.

  1. Open the Activities overview and start typing Universal Access.

  2. Click on Universal Access to open the panel.

  3. Switch Large Text to ON in the Seeing section.

Alternatively, you can quickly change the text size by clicking the accessibility icon on the top bar and selecting Large Text.

In many applications, you can increase the text size at any time by pressing Ctrl++. To reduce the text size, press Ctrl+-.

Large Text will scale the text by 1.2 times. You can use Tweaks to make text size bigger or smaller.
