Hold down the CTRL key while tapping the + key. The - key will make it smaller

Good tip Ron, that one is new to me. smiley=thumbsup.gif


Here's another:
If your mouse has a scroll button you can turn it while holding down the control key. As in Ron's tip it will change the size depending on the direction you turn the button.

Ken, my tip worked with Dos 3.1, years before the mouse was invented...

Yours is for the modern age.  Smiley

Thanks
