Dear PC Doctor:

I wear bifocals, and sometimes I just can’t get the distance right for seeing things comfortably on my computer screen. Is there a way to make what I’m looking at bigger?



Dear Squinting:

I feel your pain! Fortunately, the answer is yes, you can make things that you are looking at on your computer bigger and easier to see.

If you are using a Mac, go to System Preferences > Displays > Display. Choose Scaled instead of Default. Click the thumbnail options and choose the one that feels most comfortable for you.

In Windows 10, open Settings and go to System > Display. Under Change the size of text, apps, and other items, you'll see a set of options. Choose something bigger than 100% if you want to increase the size of what you’re viewing.

I hope this helps!
Until next time,
Happy computing!
PC Doctor
