Make Text Darker

I use Google Chrome, Version 75.0.3770.100 and have Windows 7 32bit. I am looking for a way to make my website Text Darker. I don't know if it is a Browser function or a Windows function. There is one site I frequent a lot and am going blind trying to read the light text. Any suggestions? Thanks,

Hi bigmck-

I don't use Chrome but I do you use Opera, which is a Chrome browser. In the Settings, there is a Website option and under Display, you can set fonts. If Chome has that option, click on Customize Fonts.

I was thinking a little more about this. IE allows you to change the zoom level in any page rather easily. You might try one of these methods in Chrome-

That won't darken the font but maybe you won't need to if you apply a higher zoom level.

I appreciate the extra thought. I have it zoomed 150% now and any more is just too much. == I have mentioned it to the website and I am hoping they will do something to correct it.

No, it didn't. The website just needs to make the text darker. I appreciate your efforts. If you have any other ideas, please post.

I don't have any more ideas but maybe if you posted the website in question it could help.
