Using Your Browser to Resize the Text on This Website

WV.gov has gone to great lengths to see that our website will allow visitors to size the text in a web browser to meet their personal needs. For your convenience, we have added a font sizing tool to every page of the portal located in the 'Settings' icon, which floats to the right of every page. In the event you would like to further adjust your font size please refer to the instructions below for your specific web browser.

Resizing Browser Fonts

Microsoft Edge

In the menu at the top of your browser window (Settings and more) there is an item labeled 'Zoom'. This will allow you to 'Zoom In' or 'Zoom Out'. Alternately, you can hold down the keyboard key labeled 'Ctrl' and press the keys '+' or '-' to increase or decrease the page zoom, respectively.

Chrome

At the top of your browser window, select the menu icon (Customize and Control Google Chrome). Within the dropdown, there is the item 'Zoom'. Press the up and down arrows to increase or decrease the page zoom. Alternately,you can hold down the keyboard key labeled 'Ctrl' and press the keys '+' or '-' to increase or decrease the page zoom, respectively.

Firefox

In the menu at the top of your browser window (Open menu), there is an item labeled 'Zoom'. This will allow you to 'Zoom In' or 'Zoom Out'. Alternately, you can hold down the keyboard key labeled 'Ctrl' and press the keys '+' or '-' to increase or decrease the page zoom, respectively.

Safari

In the menu at the top of your browser window labeled 'View' there are the items 'Zoom In', 'Zoom Out', and 'Make Text Bigger'. Alternately, you can hold down the "command" key (the one with the apple logo on it) and press the keys '+' or '-' to increase or decrease the page zoom, respectively.

Opera

At the top of your browser window, select the Opera icon (Main Menu). Within the dropdown, select the item 'Page' and then 'Zoom'. Press '+' or '-' to increase or decrease the page zoom. Alternately, you can hold down the keyboard key labeled 'Ctrl' and press the keys '+' or '-' to increase or decrease the page zoom, respectively.

Resizing System Fonts

If you find the above approach does not fix a text size problem you are experiencing it is possible your machine may have unusual system font size settings (perhaps to compensate for a high resolution display setting). Do not adjust these unless you still experience unacceptable font sizes after you have adjusted you browser fonts and have made sure your browser will not override system font settings.

Windows 10

Select the 'Start' button, then select 'Settings' > 'Ease of Access' > 'Display'.
To adjust the text, move the slider to the left to make text smaller, or move the slider to the right to make text larger.
To make everything larger, including images and applications, change the display size under 'Make everything bigger'.

Windows 8

Right-click the desktop and select 'Screen Resolution'.
Click 'Make text and other items larger or smaller'.
Move the slider to the left to make text smaller, or move the slider to the right to make text larger.
