Save Your Eyes
Up The Size!
Because I’ve been a computer user since I was young, my poor eyes regularly remind me of my punishment for abusing them! LOL
However, regardless of how young or old you are, small fonts can be challenging on the eyeballs…
Fortunately, it’s easy to fix when it come to using Skype
How To Increase The Text Font Size In Skype
1. Log into Skype and in the menu bar select “Tools” and under the drop-down select “Options”. This will open the options panel.
2. From within the options panel, on the left-hand navigation, select “IM Appearance” and click it.
3. Now in the IM appearance settings, click on the “Change Font” button and you can easily increase or decrease the font style, font weight and font size.
You’ll find that different fonts look better at different sizes and that even a small increase in font size makes a big difference. You should also pay attention to whether you find serif or sans-serif fonts easier to read (That is, fonts with our without the little tips on the end of each character… for example Times New Roman vs Arial).
The default font size of 7pt Tahoma is rather wearisome on tired eyes and you’ll likely find that increasing it to an 8 or a 10 will, once you get used to it, lead to better eye comfort and eye health over time.
Enjoy this cool Skype tip! I’ve got more coming next week too!
