How do i increase font size to writ e checks?

Let's adjust your screen resolution to make the font size larger, @melaniekhartshor.


The default font size used by the system is 100%. You can manually zoom in and zoom out the display screen to either increase or decrease the font size. 


To increase it, you can hold the Ctrl key and press the Plus sign (+) on your keyboard simultaneously. To decrease it, hit the Ctrl key again, then the Minus sign (-).


QuickBooks also requires these settings to ensure that all pages displayed properly:


  • Screen resolution set to 1024x768 or higher
  • Dots-per-inch (DPI) set to Normal or 100%


I've listed the steps below in checking these settings in your device.


For Windows OS:

  1. Right-click any blank spot on the desktop then choose Screen Resolution.
  2. Check if the screen resolution is set to 1024x768 or higher.
  3. Select Make text and other items larger or smaller and then check if the DPI is set to Smaller - 100%.

For Mac OS:

  1. On the upper left, select the Apple menu then choose System Preferences.
  2. Select Displays then make sure that the screen resolution is set to 1024x768 or higher.
