Tips and Tricks – Bigger Fonts for Older Eyes

Here's a trick for Mac users whose type is too small, or worse, eyes that are getting old.

Disabling the Gestures feature on your Mac Trackpad will let you change your computer's font size for a more comfortable read. With Gestures turned on, you may be accidentally zooming in or out, or activating OS X features. To avoid this, disable Gestures by opening up System Preferences and clicking on "Trackpad". Under "Scroll & Zoom" and "More Gestures," there are several gestures listed that can be disabled. The amount of accidental input will be greatly reduced and you'll obtain more control of your Mac.
