Easiest way is use the buttons on your keyboard labeled Ctrl+ Shift at the same time while rolling your mouse wheel forward.  Other ways would depend on what browser you are using.. generally found under "tools" or "options" would be a way to increase font size/type of font.

When I want to have a whole web page made easier to read I use 'Control and the + key' together a couple of times to get size that makes me happy.  To reverse is Control and the - key.

Oops, I just noticed that when I increased the size of the fonts, my avatar picture also grew larger.  I don't want to take up so much space in my posts.  Is there any way I can reduce the avatar or should I just not worry about it?

What you see is what you see.. it doesn't affect what anyone else sees.  Only if you were to use a command in your posts to make your text super big would it affect anyone else.  So as long as having a big picture doesn't bother you, keep reading big print  and enjoying it  ;D
