Stop Eye Strain in Excel 2008

You can make text bigger in Excel by zooming to a larger percentage with the Zoom control in the toolbar, or by selecting the cells containing too-small text, choosing Format > Cells (Command-1), and then setting options in the Font pane. You can also increase the default font size for new sheets by modifying the Size field (next to the Standard Font field) in the General pane of Excel's preferences.


Watch TidBITS Staff Commentary on the WWDC 2012 Keynote

Send Article to a Friend

As is our wont, we gathered virtually to chat about the various announcements being made during the WWDC 2012 keynote. What was new was that we were using Google+ Hangouts On Air so we could all see and hear each other (and some of the audio from the keynote). We were live at the time for anyone to watch, and Google+ Hangouts On Air are automatically recorded, so if you want to see and hear our unedited reactions in real time, check it out on YouTube. We’re far from expert at this sort of thing, and we’re still learning the tools and techniques, but we’d love to know what you think!favicon follow link
