    Now, what I would like to do is show you an example of just the normal size of the text when viewing something on Internet Explorer. So first I will tap on the Internet Explorer tile to open it. The tile has a lowercase E on it.

    What this function is really good for is to help you change the text for your specific needs. If you need the text to be bigger or smaller, you can edit it, and you can customize it, so it works exactly for you and just improves your entire experience of reading on the internet. To do that, we're going to go back by pressing the back arrow at the bottom of the screen. You may need to press the arrow more than once. We want to get to the Home Screen.

    You will see a blue bar below that you can press to change the size of the font.

  13. 13
    If you want the font to be smaller, you would make that blue bar very short.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    You can also make it longer by extending the blue bar all the way across. I am going to make mine very big just to give you an example. When I go back to the article, you're going to clearly see the changes.

  15. 15
    To go back, I'm just going to press the Windows icon at the bottom of the screen.

  16. 16
    Enter Internet Explorer again and open a website. Once you have a website open, what you need to do is look for the book icon at the bottom of the page. It should be just to the right of the URL address. This is the reading icon.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    If I press the book icon, the text on the screen will get bigger to reflect our personal choice that we've made in the Settings menu. Now, the text is massive. It's very big, and it's a lot easier to read if you have problems reading small text. As you can see, this is a way of increasing the text size.

    If we press and hold the left arrow at the bottom of the screen, it will show us all of the Windows that are open.

    We want to go back to settings, so we can just scroll through the open Windows to find that.

    Here we can tap on the blue bar again. This time we want to reduce the font size, so we'll press closer to the left side.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Now, if we go back to our web page on Internet Explorer, you can see that the reading view font size has decreased.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
