How to Make Text Bigger or Smaller in Google Chrome

Google Chrome has a default text size. Sometimes, you might want to make the text big or small. In this article, I will show you how to increase or reduce text size on websites using Chrome.

Change Text Size on Chrome

Let’s start with a quick shortcut. I use this when a specific website has a very small font size. There is no need to fiddle with Chrome settings.

Press the CTRL key and then press the + (plus) or – (minus) icons to increase or decrease the text size.

You can do the same thing with the mouse too. Press and hold the CTRL key and then use the scroll wheel to increase or decrease the font size.

So, how do you restore the default font size when you are done?

Press CTRL + 0 (zero).

Next, let me show you a Chrome feature that lets you change the default font size for any web page you visit.

To change the default font size in Chrome:

  1. Click the three-dots settings icon.
  2. Choose Settings.
  3. From the left pane, select Appearance.
  4. From the Font size drop-down, select your new font size. This changes the default font size on Chrome.

You have the following options:

  • Very small
  • Small
  • Medium
  • Large
  • Very Large
