Hi bigsis15 and welcome to 7S. If you mean to change the fonts when you log into gmail online then once you're logged in click on the little gear icon at the top right click on Settings and in the General tab there's an entry called Default text style where you can change the font and the size. However, this only applies to the size of text in messages you compose and if you want to change the size of fonts in general you need to change the default size of your browser fonts

Many thanks for your response Shimshom. I did learn it would change for the present message but not a permanent change. I might go back to Windows Live, I mostly know what im doing in there !!
Thanks again.:)

You're welcome. It is easier to work with what we know. I tend to use a desktop email client such as Thunderbird or Fossamail so can get all my emails in one place without having to log into an online account
