There are some things in life that we all wish would just be that little bit bigger. Now, I can't help you in every department but I know I can satisfy your text enlargement requirements with this natty little Microsoft Word keyboard shortcut. So, make sure you have a pair of nice warm hands, and let's get stuck in:

Want your selected text to be bigger? Press SHIFT+CTRL+> to see it grow in front of your very eyes.

Want your selected text to be smaller? Press SHIFT+CTRL+< to cut it back down to size.

Bonus tip: now you can get rid of those silly little BiggerSmallerTextButton buttons on the toolbar making room for something altogether more useful.

  • Ctrl + Mouse Scroll Wheel is another way to change text size
