you want to know how to change the font size of the kindle E reader screen is that correct?

Expert:  michelleclive replied 8 months ago.

Turn on your Kindle and swipe to unlock it. To do anything on your Kindle, you will need to unlock it first. Kindles, like other E-readers, are locked so that you can’t accidentally press buttons you didn’t mean to press.

I've just paid £26 - why £21 more. This cannot be difficult to resolve.
Is this a scam?

All I want to know in writing is how to amend the font size!!
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
My Kindle is switched on but the font size is less than I want to make reading easier
Expert:  michelleclive replied 8 months ago.

STEPS to follow

Open a book and tap the top of your screen.

Select the “Aa” graphic, which is the text size key. This graphic will help you both change your font size and the font itself.

Adjust to the size you desire. On the standard Kindle, you can choose from six different font sizes, and you can select fonts like Helvetica and Futura.

On a Kindle PaperWhite, you can change your font size simply by sliding your thumb and forefinger away from each other while placed on the screen. It’s similar to how you would zoom in and out on a smartphone.

The Kindle is making it even easier nowadays to adjust the font size to what you need. E-readers are great for those who have vision problems, because you can read almost anything in a big enough font size for you.

That took you 10 seconds - why so much fuss and money?

If there was a User Guide for the reader, this would have all have been avoided.
