I thought only an old fart ( as described by sleepy mike) like me had this sort of trouble. If you are using any form of Microsoft like 2000 85 or xp you can change the font by going to Control Panel and go to display. When you get to that area choose large or extra large fonts.
Changing Web page fonts and background colors
When Web authors and designers create Web pages, they often specify particular type (font) faces, colors, sizes, and background colors. These settings are specified for each item, or in a "style sheet," which is a type of template for specifying how different styles should appear throughout a Web page or site.
You can override any or all of these settings, which is useful if you have limited or low vision. You can specify your font and color preferences for all pages that do not use style sheets, and then you can specify whether to use any or all of your preferences on pages that use style sheets.

If you are using word or other application click on the area that shows generally 100% of what you are seeing. You can increase this to 150 and so on. Hope this helps
