    New Windows Secrets Newsletter - Copy and Paste/Print Font Size

    I like to print out my Windows Secret newletter so that I can read it at leisure. Unforturnately when I print it out the new newsletter format, the print is very small thus making it hard to read. I have tried to copy and paste the newsletter and increasing the font size but was not real successful in this endeavor. Under the old publishing system, I was able to copy and paste or print it out at the same font size the newsletter had.
    Is there some way to print a readable newsletter that was printed?

    Regards

    I downloaded and installed cutepdf. I was able to convert the newsletter to a pdf. Was able to see pdf in increased size but it won't print in a larger font size to be readable. Thanks for reply and suggestion.

    John,
    when your on the page you want to print, hold down the Ctrl key then use the mouse wheel to change font size.

    Will check out the shortcut. Thanks Roderunner.

    Clarification: When the newletter is received at my ISP homepage mailbox, I am able to read it fine. The font size seems to about 12.0. I download it to my PC using Windows Live Email. Still able to view newsletter as the font size looks to be 12.0. But when I print the newletter out the font size is small and nearly unreadable. Font size looks to be 5.5. If I copy & paste to Win Word, font size is 5.5. Under the old publishing system I had no problem copying & pasting to Win Word and maintaining font size (12.0). I like to print out the newsletter for convience. I don't like reading to much on the computer due to eye problems.

    thanks for your reply

    Tried the CTRL key/mouse wheel shortcut. But still prints out in small font.

    Thanks and regards

    If FF means FireFox browser, I do not use it. I use IE9 or Chrome. The problem is not the viewing the newsletter, the problem lays in printing it out in the font scale that it is viewed as. 'ie' viewed at 12.0-print out at 12.0-not 5.5.

    Thanks for your continued replies.
